Touka Gettan 08 - You're as cold as ice to me

In this episode, Touka and Momoka get up, eat breakfast, say a normal goodbye to Yumiko, and enjoy a peaceful afternoon at a school skating event, with no mass snowball fights, supernatural disasters, or attempted stranglings. Oh who am I kidding, this is Touka Gettan, the series that is second only to Revolutionary Girl Utena in the field of "cars in misplaced places." So let's say that some of the preceding things happen, and others don't.

Warning: Slow connection is slow today.

P.S. I came across a rather interesting book excerpt dealing with Touka Gettan. It's pretty good reading, but be aware that it's very "academic" prose.


  1. Reading the excerpt was a bit amusing. I mean, I agree with everything it says and this is far and away one of my favorite series of all time. But it's just *so strange* to read someone speaking so seriously and positively about it, because it seems to be such a forgotten and unappreciated show in general.

    But good for Dani. It's a wonderful series.

  2. >_> Any chance of getting a DDL link for this? ;D

  3. @ Archness: Maybe this Friday. I do all my DDL uploads when I'm at the local university for Anime Club, since I can finish an upload in 3 minutes instead of 3 hours. Unfortunately, some sites like megaupload tend not to work due to firewalls or w/e. I'll try out some other hosts.

    @Anon: Yeah, that book segment was definitely a welcome change from the discourse at places like ANN, where Touka Gettan's erotic content would've landed it squarely in the "trash it to troll lonely otaku" zone.

  4. woot! thanks Zalis :D
