Pond Art

Recently, I managed to get some new decorations up in The Pond, and I thought y'all'd be interested in seeing them.

First up: anime!

The quality of the snapshot isn't the greatest, I'll admit, but you can see what it is well enough... it's a douga (the closest thing to a cel you'll get out of a CG anime) from Azumanga Daioh, nicely framed and matted.  Of course it's hanging on the wall over the DVD racks.  There's something about Chiyo-chan's expression that makes me grin.

On the wall opposite this, we find ducks!

A couple of years ago, IKEA was selling a pack of postcards and I immediately saw them as wall-art.  It just took me forever to get around to picking up frames for 'em. 

So that's a glimpse into the sort of place Pond Central is.

Well, that's definitely geeky, but not as bad as it could be. A true fanatic would go through the whole Azumanga Daioh series and find that frame, framegrab it, and post it along with your photograph.

So feel good: you're not totally off the edge yet.

The drawing is from the back half of the series, I know that.  You can tell from the position of Chiyo-chan's pigtails. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to find the scene yet.

(Yup, the ledge was left behind a loooooong time ago...)

3 I was going to suggest that I, too, thought it was later in the series. Not because of the pigtails, however, but because early in the series Chiyo-chan would never have expressed that kind of feeling. It's only later that she's more comfortable with her friends and feels like one of the "big girls" that she's willing to be more frank like that.

4 A valid point, and absolutely correct.  It's also one of the "fall" episodes, since they're in the long-sleeved (pink) seifuku.  Those combinations probably narrow it down to about seven or eight different eps.

Wow, forensic anime.
