Between Linux and Anime

Kind of like Schrodinger's Cat

Category: Sora no Otoshimono

Yokatta Nymph! Yokuyatta Ikaros!

Finished Otoshimono! And here at the very end I must say I’m pretty glad after all that I didn’t drop this one. Who would’ve guessed, that character who started out as meh generic cutepoints jailbait blue-haired loli ended up becoming my favorite character in the show. It was the oldest cheat in the book – make a character look really adorable, give her some minor but cute and sweet developments, make the story treat her really (like really, REALLY) bad, then bring on the over-the-top-awesome we-will-save-you-cos-you’re-our-precious-friend thing. And oh did it sucker me :( I mean, even with all the nonsense we had to take watching this show up to this point, how can we help not tearfully smiling along when we see Nymph like this:

Oh, and I should add that that final episode at long last met and surpassed my bad-assery expectations. Good job Ikaros! And good job in general Sora no Otoshimono. You were actually pretty enjoyable, and if you ever reappear with a sequel, I’ll seriously consider picking you up again :)

Anisong: Soba ni Irareru Dake de

It’s a new blog and a new beginning and all, so I figured I might as well start something random – whenever I change the anisong that I embed here on my blog, I’ll make a small accompanying post with the (romaji) lyrics and translation. Personally I can remember a good number of anisongs that I started liking a whole lot better after I understood some of the lyrics, so I guess you could say this is my way of sharing that in some small way :) No guarantee that I’d be disciplined enough to keep this up though, but if you like the idea, let me know!

Without further ado, here’s the first installment! Soba ni Irareru Dake de, the ED to the first episode of Sora no Otoshimono (which so far is the only episode I liked).

In case it still isn’t clear by now, you can listen to the song by hitting the F8 key.

Lyrics and translations (and a pic!) after the jump :)
