Ducks In Anime: It's Been Too Long

It's been a while since there was a true Ducks In Anime sighting.  The brief view of a duck in Rio Rainbow Gate! doesn't really count, and before that the last one was in an eyecatch for (urgh) KissXsis.  You have to go back to the first episode of Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka, in early January, for the last real D.I.A.  Sometimes we'll go through this kind of lull where there is nary a rubber duckie to be found, even though there are plenty of scenes where one would be appropriate (yes, Hanasaku Iroha ep04, I'm looking at you...).  But then the darkness will turn to light, and lo a duckie will appear to great rejoicing.  Like this one:

-Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi, ep02
It's not even from a series I'm watching (get with the program, Hanasaku Iroha!); it took a pointer from Big Papa Pixy himself to bring it to my attention.  But oh, it was worth it...

See, the female lead (who I will call Miss Nameless, since I pretty much fast-forwarded through everything looking for this scene) actually holds a fairly long conversation with her duckies...

... all three of them!  Now this is a gal after my own heart.  I note that these duckies have an odd appendage coming out of the backs of their heads... I'm not sure what it's supposed to be.  The Flock has a number of duckies that has a little tuft on their heads, but it's above the forehead, not the back.  I particularly like the duckie in back, by the way.

Y'know, Yuno only had one duckie (except two episodes where she had two)... Miss Nameless here has three.  Yep, I could like this show...
