Ducks In Anime Want Friends, Too!


Okay, yes, WATAMOTE! is a horribly realistic look at the seamy underside of high school life, the side only those unpopular kids ever get to see.  Yes, it's sort of depressing how accurate it is, and how much I identify with the main character even after 27 years.  All of these things are true.

But it's got a duck wearing a headset.  A cute duck, too.  And that makes it all okay with me.

1 Death in Paradise, a live-action UK detective show set on a fictional tropical island, had a rubber duck appear prominently on the ep I watched last night (Season 2, Episode 7). There was a bunch of meteorologists, one of whom had a duck as some kind of trademark in his personal photos and videos. So of course he got murdered offscreen while the poor duckie sat onscreen, helpless....

I've been watching the show on a PBS station, but it's a UK show that stations buy locally. Sorry I can't find you any clips or screencaps! The only pic I've found shows the very bottom of the duck sitting on the very top of a weather station, and thus it's just a yellow bar.

2 Banshee, this is for you.  I don't it doesn't quite apply, since you tried to do the href route... which doesn't work... but it's still appropriate.
