Crying Watching Lucky Star

Not bawling crying, mind you, but this scene always manages to bring a
tear to my eyes (where Konata's dad explains to Konata, with her
mother's ghost watching, that the one thing he was confident of was
that he loved her mother more than anyone else could). A lot of the time
when a series that's mainly comedy tries to pull off drama it doesn't
work very well, but whoever directed this scene I give them a lot of
credit.

On another note, the latest Haruhi-coming-in-April-oh-wait-it's-not
rumor would have felt like taking a mallet to the nutsack, but
fortunately I've heard that story before enough that I was cynical and
didn't get my hopes up. It has me wishing JC Staff would just do the
second season, because otherwise by the time it airs I'll be old and
won't be able to find my own pants, much less figure out how to watch
X.68030 format fansubs or whatever else kids are using by then.
