So, my friends and I finished watching Tiger & Bunny
a few days ago, and I was left a melted puddle of emotions. I am not actually given to waving my arms and claiming to have ALL OF THE FEELINGS about things, but in this case I think it is empirically true. I certainly went through all the basic ones defined in Darwin's The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals
, which I consider enough to justify the expression. Although the embarrassment was of course vicarious. Kotetsu is a great inspirer of Fremdschämen
. I may have spent the past two days grinning stupidly and working on a vid, the better to express my undying love. (I hate clipping. And I hate clipping on a computer that is not my own even more than usual.)
Anyway, while I was listening to the Drama CDs and innocently looking for porn, I came across what I have scientifically determined to be the most adorable missing scene ever
. It occurs after Episode Thirteen, and involves Barnaby inviting everyone over for a party. Among other things, we learn that he actually does own a bed.
 See, I even had feelings there are no words for in English! Because I definitely experienced Schadenfreude
at certain points, too. I did not feel my favourite Italian emotion, but campanilismo
can of course only be inspired in me by things set in my beloved home city. Beautiful as Sternbild is, its towers are not mine.
