OMG, this is so disturbing: a fan comic Witch Hunter Robin/Azumanga Daioh crossover, Robimanga Daioh.
And speaking of WHR, it's beginning to pick up. I've complained before that although the show has huge amounts of style, it wasn't going anywhere; every episode was just hunt-the-witch-of-the-week; there were suggestions of deeper, darker things going on, but no larger story arc was developing. Well, with episode 12 that just changed. The major story arc just took off like a bomb. The show is much improved, and even more sinister than it was before.
This is sort of a rip-off of Woody Allen's "If the Impressionists Had Been Dentists", but it's still funny: If Jean-Paul Sartre had been an aspiring chef.
I have realized that the traditional omelet form (eggs and cheese) is bourgeois. Today I tried making one out of cigarette, some coffee, and four tiny stones. I fed it to Malraux, who puked. I am encouraged, but my journey is still long.
From the Miyazaki mailing list: someone dressed up as No Face/Kaonashi for Halloween. Picture 1, Picture 2. The wearer gave out Rolo candies (which are covered in gold foil) to simulate gold nuggets. This was in Hawaii (note the hula dancer), and no one recognized the character except for some visiting Japanese school kids.

|Right radical is 'face', left is 'already' (予), acting phonetically to express 'relax'. Originally this character referred to a facial expression of relaxation. Current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests remembering as a mnemonic: 'Already faced with having to look after deposits.'|
