Stop crying, Otacon!

Poor Otacon, it's not easy being the designated trauma character. I'd like to point out to any storywriters out there that a little trauma goes a long way. Killing everyone your guy's ever taken one too many lingering looks at is good characterization for your genocidal maniacs, not so much the sad nerds.

I feel ya, dude.

SNAKE WHAT ARE YOU DOING OVER THERE CUT IT OUT WE'RE ON A MISSION HERE.
Why was there a parrot in a top secret weapons development lab? Seems....stupid.
Aww.
Frowns all around!

Some old FLCL sketch action

I think all these sketches are from early 2000-something, right after the fandubs started floating around Hotwire. This was the series that made me feel like animation might actually be worthwhile again, afterall. Not that it actually had any effect on my animation plans (or rather, total lack thereof) personally, but still. What a fucking fantastic series.

While I will admit they kind of blew their tweening wad on the first couple episodes, it's the moment when Ninamori sticks her finger through the glasses that will always stand out as one of my top animated moments, ever.


Despite all the extremely hot porn she's (rightfully) inspired, I always picture Haruko compassionate/dispassionate, as Naota cries to her.
