A Dark Duck In Anime Has Seven Lives


-Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi ep12

To be honest, after having watched ep12 of ITnKU (or "A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives"), I have no idea what the show's title means.  What I do know is that a) almost everybody in the show can use magic, 2) almost everybody in the show has the hots for the protagonist, and III) the female lead has hair that's longer than she is tall.  And of course, the final episode of the season takes place as a bath house.

The duck on the left wears a bow tie.  Bow ties are cool.
To say that this show isn't my cup of hair meat tea would be an understatement.  The only worthwhile thing about the last episode were the ducks.  To be fair to the show, the ducks are great.  They're obviously cousins of Yuno's Duck from HidaSketch, and made an obvious throwaway episode worth watching.  Even if it was with the volume down (half the cast has voices that sound like fingernails on a blackboard) and the subtitles off (I'm dumb enough already to have to have braincells killed by the script).

I gather the show is based on a successful series of light novels.  Hopefully they're better than the one episode of the anime I just watched.  But hey, ducks!

I think it means that the rabbit (which is dark) has 7 lives.

2 But do you have any pictures of a rubber duck wearing a Fez?  Because "Fezzes are cool" too!

3 Thanks for the lovely site, a great place to get my duck fix.  I have a tip for you:  there are some non-toy ducks in episode 15 of Mawaru Penguindrum, about halfway through.  (If you haven't watched the series up to this point you won't have a clue what's going on, but just focus on the cute!)
