Missed Opportunities Suck

Geez…

They really do. An example, the Under Your Radar entry on Angel Densetsu should have opened with the narration they opened and closed the series with. By which, of course, I’m referring to:

“At the end of this dreamless, hopeless, inhospitable century, there was a boy who possessed a serenely honest and simple heart… Of course, he could not ignore a person such as this, even though he was on the other side of the road. But his outward appearance — from his tiny black irises to his year-round ghost-pale skin and black marks under his eyes, which made him look like a heroin addict, his eyebrows were nearly non-existent, and his vicious bed-head that required the liberal application of hair gel to keep under control… So he looked like this.” (ACT.1: “Introducing the Scariest Face Around”)

“At the end of this dreamless, hopeless, inhospitable century, there was a boy who possessed a serenely honest and simple heart… Of course, he could not ignore a person such as this, even though he was on the other side of the road. But his outward appearance — from his tiny black irises to his year-round ghost-pale skin and black marks under his eyes, which made him look like a heroin addict, his eyebrows were nearly non-existent, and his vicious bed-head that required the liberal application of hair gel to keep under control… But he didn’t mind his frightening looks, and his angelic heart helped him overcome many trials and tribulations… Sometimes he solved misunderstandings, and sometimes he received them… And he made very many precious friends… The story of Kitano-kun, the boy with the heart of an angel, will continue long after this point, with many incidents to come and new friends to be made.” (ACT.84: “The Final Holy War”)

Even more recently, in the blog post about Pokémon Battle Revolution, I forgot to note that friend cards may have something to do with why people don’t disconnect – since they get to try facing the team they lost to at a later date, controlled by the AI.

Ah well, and now you know. 😉
