Ducks In Anime: Forgot About This One!

-Shokugeki no Soma S2 OVA

While casually searching through one or another of my "screenshots I may use someday" folders, which are filled to the digital brim with reaction shots or interesting things... trains, scenery porn, that sort of stuff... I discovered a Ducks In Anime picture I didn't recognize!  Understand, this is practically unfathomable to me... I can tell at a glance if I have used an anime duckie in a D.I.A. post, and I know this one has never been.  PARTICULARLY since it's Megumi, who would rank rather high on my list of favorite characters of late.  She's interesting, which is more than I can say about the main for this particular show.

What really (note: not really) terrifies me is that I don't remember watching this particular episode/OVA/whatever.  Indeed, I just yarrrred it and watched and I'm almost positive I haven't seen it before.  So how did the first picture in this post wind up in possession?  I don't know, it will forever be a mystery to me.  But hey, more Ducks In Anime, amirite?

Ducks In Anime: Yes I Saw It

It started simply enough... an e-mail saying "Watch DanMachi2 Ep 05."  Then a text message.  Then a comment here on The Pond.  Then another text message.  Then a post over at R's place.  Then another e-mail.  And what heralded all this fooferraw?


-Danjon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Daro ka S02, Ep05
First, it was a duckie.  A very nice duckie to be sure, don't get me wrong, but a single duckie.  At which point, the producktion staff realized that while a single duckie is nice, many duckies are better.  Much better.  Much much better.

Even I had to admit, that was a lot of duckies... and they almost literally appeared out of nowhere.  First one duckie, then many duckies flowed their way into the bath like they had been there all the time... which they hadn't, as an earlier establishing shot confirms.

So where did all of these rubber duckies come from?  Particularly considering this is a fantasy world of swords and magic and Hephaestus isn't a lame, misshapen, ugly man but a eye-wateringly hot redhead with an eyepatch... rubber duckies should, sadly, not be a thing.  But yet, there they are!

I am hardly one to complain about rubber duckies in anime.  Heavens no!  I don't even care about internal consistency when it comes to their appearance in a series... the more duckies the better, is what I say.  Particularly when we all really know why they're here...

Yep.  That's why.  They're just doing their job.
