Seeing as how everyone on the blogosphere and their cats have covered Clannad 17, I figured I should attempt something different. I assume you've also watched it for yourself and is now aware of that epic tent pitching, erection inducing gym equipment storage room scene featuring Tomoya and Kyou. Now, you might also want try out the charm for yourself but has doubt on its effectiveness. Look no further, as the sole member of the Atarashii Prelude Anime Mythbusters® crew, I have taken upon the duty of trying out firsthand as to whether or not it truly works. Incidentally, Kurogane himself wanted to attempt this as well, but I'll go ahead with it first ^^;
First off you're going to need two ordinary 10 yen coins like so:
lulz photosh00p 2x sharpen
Now, rewatch that episode again and see how it was all done.
Impossible? Not with my infinite spiral energy it isn't!
You're going to need Zen like concentration for this.
lawlwut? Okay, fine.
After 20 minutes of trying I only managed to get one coin standing upright. I give up.
Damn you KEY. Damn you, Kyoto Animation. Damn you for giving me false hopes. My dreams of being alone with Kyou in a gym equipment storage room as I contemplate all the perverted things I would do to her, but bailing out due to cowardice is all but ruined. Bawwwwwwwww ;-;
Tomoya's words did little to assure me, as despite his initial skepticism, he did wind up being in that envious situation with my beloved Kyou(ignoring the fact he didn't take advantage of it) and bearing witness to a side of Kyou that not even her own twin sister has seen.
And as such, that so called charm is nothing but a myth to entice ronery otakus such as myself to attempt something as pointless as this, and is therefore BUSTED [/rage] Perhaps one day, when all the conditions have been met(me being in front of a girl with droopy eyes sitting in the library in a Japanese high school) I might attempt this once again, ;-; Wonder if I should write in and ask the real Mythbusters dudes to give this experiment a shot, as they'd probably have a much higher success rate...
I had too much time on my hands and phailed miserably.
Okay, that was pretty stupid(I DID IT FOR THE LULZ), but it does drive home the perennial point that *gasp* anime and real life don't mix. I know, shocking isn't it? Remember kids, the only way you're going to get any kind of action is through plain old effort or with the help of some GHB. Shin out.
