A post not inspired by Azumanga but nevertheless (as this is tending to be an anime blog) I will make reference of it.
Certain things do indeed come back into vogue . The same could be said of entertainment and what constitutes popular content. The late 90s and 2000s saw programs like That 70s Show and Family Guy (80s references) become extremely popular. We even got more Star Wars (and ABBA movie, Guitar Hero, list goes on and on and on).
The point I’m trying to make is… 2010 will be the year of the 80s and 90s. The Nineties.
Run for the hills!
 When it comes to content in media, this is usually a product of populations reaching certain age groups and the associated purchasing power and demand for specific goods that come with that demographic.
 It’s already started! Avatar = Dances with wolves (1990) cum environmentalist wet dream… Oh well, at least the action had enough explosions I could turn off the higher-functions and enjoy it. Hurr durr pew pew pew BOOOOOM.
/me listens to 1985. And Red Hot Chili. And Alice in Chains. At least the Rock scene rocked.
