Them in the snow, clearing up firewood or something, swapping life stories... also my favorite part in the fairly ridiculous movie adaption!
( still chicken scratchCollapse )
The characters started out as Prussia and still-think-the-boy-parts-are-going-to-g
Angel Beats does have its problems, of course. If you want logical anime (ha ha), this is not it.
cue minorrific spoilers:
why am I doing this these are like puny spoilers
episode 2, the underground mechanics decide to blow up the the entire underground base, when, really? Why couldn't they just evacuate to their alternate site, and blow the Angel up a little earlier, before she reaches the Guild? It's obvious the Angel has no ill intent, and she would never use the machinery there to create her own weapons. Also, didn't the mechanics say something about using their memory to create "replicas" of gadgets (that work just like the real thing, hey)? So it makes it even more unlikely that the Angel would know how to make weapons. ehh whatever, I guess watching anime was not meant to be a thinking sport.
End Super-Tiny Spoiler Which Was Really A Rant I Guess
This anime also contains its joyful amount of fanservice. It's got groping, chicks with electric guitars and drums, ambiguously gay relationships (Oh man, Hinata/Otonashi, the story writers planted the seed knowing full well), glasses, etc etc, but I enjoyed it even though I knew I was being manipulated with gimmicks, because it's so well executed, haha.
Also, does anyone else feel that the NPCs are not just incredibly well-programmed replicas? They seem too emotional, and too real, and too resistant to the authority of the teachers to just be programmed drones or whatever Yuri thinks they are...
yeah, watching third episode this is addictive man
( cut'd because I'm niceCollapse )
waaah Iwasawa-sannnn TT_TT
all of the in-depth character arcs are so sad >_<
So my dad thought I should go to SoCal to see some of the Universities there. We went to UCLA first, which definitely had a beautiful campus, but the city's kind of dirty and cramped, as expected of any city, even one attached to a place like Hollywood. The squirrels there are huge and fearless lol, and a lot of the upper windows are streaked with bird crap from the masses of swallows that like to build nests there DX. CalTech was reasonably close by, so we dropped by there too. Lol nerdy campus is so nerdy. It's also kind of small... and I think the male:female ratio is like 9:1 haha. One curious squirrel saw me and actually tried to come closer and reach out to me XD! They also have a small artificial pond where like 50 small turtles are just chillin'.
The next day we went to UC San Diego... which was simply... amazing. Holy crap, guys, it is so gorgeous there. The entire city is just a sprawling beach-side with the bluest blue waters*A* Aaah, and all the buildings are so spaced out and low-rise and relaxed.... unfghh, it's so pretty there. My parents and I went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner, and my Dad was commenting on their menu and asked the waiter, "Ah, I guess there aren't a lot of Chinese patrons in this area?"
"Chinese people...? San Diego...? Aah, no." lol so if I do go to UCSD, I'll have to put up with no good Chinese food.
And the campus is huge! I would need a bike just to get around within the engineering sector only! IDK, SAN DIEGO IS SO FAR, BUT I REALLY WANT TO GO THERE NOW AHHH
And afterwards, we went to the San Diego Zoo! It was pretty freaking expensive, but I can understand why they charge so much, the zoo is freaking huge and is supporting so many animals @_@
