Computers, HidaSketch Style

Things like this never fail to amuse me endlessly.  One of the two new characters in Hidamari Sketch Hoshimittsu, Nori-chan, has a computer in her apartment, something none of the other girls has.

As an aside, I've completely changed my opinion of Nori as a character in the show.  Before, I didn't like either of the two new girls.  While I still dislike Nazuna, who behaves like a scared puppy (minus the carpet wetting, at least on-screen), Nori has shown herself to be just as interesting and charming as the Original Four.  But I digress.

Nori has a computer, and you know that if there's a computer in a slice-of-life show, it's gonna be used sooner or later (Chekhov's Keyboard?), and like as not, we're going to see it booting up.

So do we all, Shaft, so do we all... on a tangental note, HidaSketch might be the first show by Shaft that I've really liked, though they did split credit on G-On Riders!, so that's arguable.  Anywhodles, the boot screen makes me wonder about Nori-chan's uncle, the builder of her computer...

"I've got a Computer Acronyms For Dummies book here, let's just choose some at random."

Though you've got to like the BIOS name and version...

1 I'm not really a fan of SHAFT myself; other than REC and ef-memories I haven't been able to get into any of their shows (still haven't finished ef, though). Even the really popular stuff like Zetsubou-sensei and Bakemonogatari leaves me cold. Despite that, HidaSketch has been on my to-watch list for a while, though now that it's licensed I'll be waiting until I can get the DVDs.

2 I did watch Bakemonogatari as it ran, and I never missed an episode... but I'm not sure if I really liked it.  I honestly believe that the only reason I watched the show was so I could make sense out of Blogsuki's writeups, which I very much DID like.

So no credit given on that one.

3 You know, the scene where they boot the new mega-robot in 08th MS Team is even more ugh. It runs on something like 486DX.
