Mind-blowing wind –
Earth’s atmosphere dissolved,
all feathers stuck in every outstretched limb
rooted to this world
lift and rustle
with revolution.

The wind has been mind-blowing
since yesterday –
as if the atmosphere disappeared,
and all feathers bound to every outstretched limb
rooted to this world
were beckoned to fly
with their mother's rotation.

was more interesting than I expected. We also don't get too many period anime that don't take place in the Warring States or Edo/Meiji so that's a nice change. Also Teruhi is a very good princess.

I told the one about the night I broke into a monastery. This one, I said, Involves a drunk monk, a drunk train engineer, and a drunk American, as well as David Essex and Balaam’s Ass. David Essex? they said, Balaam’s Ass? Let’s, I said, Focus on the drunks, locked gates, brick walls, the horror of gravity, and grass stained knees. Oh gravity, they said appreciatively. No, I said, The horror of gravity. I read the consternation on their faces, and saw I might as well try explaining David Essex.
