Invisible Fuuko? I has it. (Clannad 20-25% done~)

Yes yes, I know, slowpoke.jpg and everything. Sometimes people have to get in the mood to watch stuff, you get what I mean?

So Fuuko’s gone to the big Starfish Carnival in the sky (metaphorically, darn it, metaphorically!). To a lot of people it is a big deal.

Personally I was moved, but not to tears, at the end of the arc. Before you all go down and scream in my ear, let’s get the matter straight. I was moved. Fuuko’s determination (and utter cuteness) combined with the story-driven amnesia that suddenly disappeared, could make a grown man feel something. Sure I felt sad but it was a good kind of sadness the kind when someone you know has passed on, but with peace in their being. that is how I felt about Fuuko’s arc.

Sure the arc had it’s ups and down, but seriously, it’s a Key work. It’s supposed to make you shed tears like crazy no matter the cost. It’s one of their strengths, and their greatest flaw. Heck I haven’t been this moved since I desperately wanted an ending to Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu that would wrap up the show in a tearjerker.

Yes, Fuuko had her flaws, but in the end, like the little engine that could, she finished what she came to do. That, in itself, is an accomplishment few can ever lay claim to.

At least she’s happy now T_T


(Kotomi’s next. Ooh Asperger’s.)

Why the School Days OVA [Valentine Days] is epic and you must watch it on pain of death Sir, just because your country has bad parenting doesn’t mean you can go around and assign scapegoats.

    Why would Kotomi have Asperger’s?

    “Why would Kotomi have Asperger’s?”

    Let’s see:
    – highly intellegent
    – fixated on narrow interests
    – difficulty understanding social cues (such as how to introduce yourself)
    – atypical speech pattern (highly formal, monotone)

    … do I really have to go on? Kotomi is a textbook Aspie.
