Photos from 1983: Doomsday



Austrian soldiers, part of the Alpine Expeditionary Corps, surveying the outskirts of an abandoned hamlet close to the formal borders of Sopron. Circa 2009.

The expedition into the Hungarian Wastes, which reached the "sea of glass" that had been Budapest, was the last conducted under the Alpine Militia's watch. The findings of the personnel and researchers were published with formal endorsement by the Alpine Confederation and WCRB, confirming the still tumultuous conditions of the land separating the Alpine Confederation from Partium. Rumors would continue to circulate, however, involving still-classified data. Which, if they are to be believed, concern the discovery of a peculiar corpse not long after the photo above was taken.

While being nomadic was often a necessity after Doomsday, a recent trend has began in Europe, North America and the ANZC where people are once again embracing a full time 'nomadic lifestyle' is becoming more popular.


 


Train station in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture, showing an advertisement for Japanese animation studio Kyoto Animation. Founded in 1981, it was an up and coming anime studio when Doomsday occurred. Despite the turmoil of the initial decade, vestiges of the company continued operations as a local distributor and producer of manga. Its trademark quality and emphasis on both the fantastical and "sensitivity to the wonders and quandaries of ordinary life" as one critic put it would remain consistent, even as it returned to producing animated series and films. By the 2010s, it has also begun gaining recognition outside Japan, with its runaway hit Kitauji High School Music Club even reaching TV screens in the ANZC.
