Sky Girls TV

I've got a baaaaaaad feeling about this...

Dear Dad...

It's been a while since I last wrote. After that Worm attack, we put into Yokosuka for some major repairs and upgrades, and I was too busy scraping barnacles to write. I did find some old photos though, and I thought you'd be interested in hearing about how the Sonic Diver unit got to where they are. more...

AMV PROJECT 2 ANNOUNCEMENT

Run in fear! Plead for mercy! BEG FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

No, wait... wrong script.

*shuffle shuffle* Ah, here we go...

*ahem*

Wonderduck Productions has begun work on it's second AMV. The subject anime will again be Kanon 2006, partially because I don't want to get into DVD ripping just yet, but mostly because that's what lept to mind.

Yes, just like "...Angel", this one sprung fully-formed into my brain... with a bonus: the song has never been used, according to AMV.org. In fact, the band in question (The Smithereens, best rock band of the '80s and early 90s) only appears ONCE at all, out of 150000+ videos.

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaaaaaa! Here we go again!!!

The Eyes Have It

Over at Chizumatic, Steven is talking about who Mikuru from Haruhi Suzumiya really is, and mentions that "some fans speculate that Mikuru is actually Kyon's younger sister." He then goes on to say that "they have the same eyes."

Hmm. Sounds like a fun bit of speculation, and one that I had no previous opinion on... let's take a look! I called up my AFK fansubs (which gives us a lot more opportunities to take screenshots of Imouto-chan), and photoshop, and started snappin'. I tried to match camera angles as much as possible on all of these, of course, and I used the left eye of each... here's a result:

Lisa Lopes not pictured.

Top row, L to R, we have Imouto, Mikuru and Haruhi (for comparison). Haruhi's looks like Imouto's but not Mikuru's. Mikuru's is longer than Imouto's or Haruhi's... I think.
Bottom row, we've got Imouto and Mikuru. The shapes of the eyes are... different, but that might be because Imouto is grumpy in her shot, where Mikuru is happy.

Still, not exactly a ringing endorsement of the "same eyes" arguement, but not enough to disprove the theory. Further study I leave to the interested individual; I don't see Imouto being a younger version of Mikuru, m'self, but I'm not about to rule it out, either, based on my short experiment.

Then, for a lark, I decided to go farther afield... for your entertainment, here's even MORE left eyes:
It's a potato!  See, it's got lots of eyes...

Can you name them? Answers and further discussion below: more...
