Wes’s Random Weekend Theme – Nobody Reads This Anyways Edition

“Even though I dodge the pain,
even though I’m getting used to it,
Why is it that in times like these,
my tears just can’t be stopped?”

According to this week’s random song choice by my iPod, this weekend would be best spent watching anime. And I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you Apple! Due to the rather guilty-pleasure-heavy nature of this week’s track I considered not posting it at all. But since I missed the last few weeks and nobody is reading this shit anyways, why not? It’s a pop song in a collection that generally has virtually anything but pop, and is there because of its connection to my anime habit.

“Second Flight”, performed by Kotoko & Hiromi Sato is the opening theme to the short series anime ‘Onegai Twins”, one of my favourite shows. It follows three possibly related orphans as they try to solve the mystery of which two of the three are actual siblings. The show itself has a few glaring flaws, some things are silly to the point of stupid, and one episode’s story-line comes off a little unintentionally mean-spirited. But there is a good story at the heart of it and has many of my favourite characters and scenes in it.

Here’s the series intro and opening credits featuring the song. I couldn’t find a version with subs- The three see their early childhood home (as they know it from a picture) in a news report (on the events of the series this is a loose “sequel” to) and each decide to find it:

Geez… I’ve sure expended a lot of effort into something no one gives a shit about. But really, the point for me is to do something and stay disciplined and thorough about it. If I’m ever going to do something worthwhile with this blog, it is a skill set I’m going to need.
