More on trigger discipline

Speaking of trigger discipline, I always cringe when I watch this scene:

/images/07196.jpg

Lynn is about one mistake away from blowing that guy's head off. On the other hand, Sasha and Chiaki do it right:

Chiaki's finger position is a bit odd, but that's because the grip on that blaster was designed for someone with bigger hands. She can't lay her index finger along the trigger guard because it's too far away.

Sasha, of course, is doing it perfectly. She's aiming the weapon straight up, where there isn't anything she cares about, and holding it with both hands, and her finger is extended, not on the trigger.

Beauty and brains.

When the swallows return to Capistrano..

The first lawn mower of Spring. (Are lawn mowers migratory?)

Also, the maple trees are flowering all over my sinuses, and I'm a bit miserable.

Evolution of language

New meanings all the time. For instance:

"brick" -- noun or adjective, a rectangular block of ceramic used for building construction. "We live in a brick house."

"brick" -- transitive verb, to render a computer totally inoperative. "Damn it, that last update bricked my phone!"

Seikoku no Dragonar -- ep 2

So we've got an antagonist. Nasty woman with huge boobs, a dragon researcher who wants to dissect Eco. Bah.

This show feels like a transparent attempt to remake Zero no Tsukaima. It's got all the same ingredients, except they're all mixed around. Eco (the dragon) is very much like Louise, and Mariya Ise is doing her very best Rie Kugimiya imitation on the voice. (When I first heard it I thought it was Kugimiya.)

And we've got a princess. And we've got a maid. And we've got a dragon in human form. And they're all at a school. And one of the girls is tsundere. And so on.

The naming sequence, on the other hand, was right out of Magician's Academy. Ash kneels down and looks at the girl and says "Your name is Eco" and then she glows and his arm glows. And we're told that their astral flows are bonded, whatever that means.

All of which is to say that this is just about as derivative as it can be.

That's OK; it's still fun. It just isn't particularly profound. But that damned teacher could ruin the show.
