Has anyone watched this?



I decided to have a look after Konata talked about it in Lucky Star; the one where she acted all posh.



Blimey - it really is posh!



I think it may be the first series to defeat me on the grounds of being "too girly" <!--emo&:blink:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/blink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blink.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

I just finished the first series. It's actually really addictive <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->



It's really quite strange, since nothing of consequence really happens to these posh Catholic school girls... and yet they take it all so seriously. I don't think it will spoil the ending if I tell you the climax involves a shopping trip <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Sometimes it's hard to tell where sisterly love ends and lesbian lust begins... but the pseudo-sexual tension part of the attraction. The show is basically about relationships, respect, admiration and duty.



There's a second series... I may give in to temptation <!--emo&:unsure:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' /><!--endemo-->



OK - I gave in <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I've really enjoyed these girls' company. It's total escapism for twenty minutes <!--emo&:pot:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/fly2.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='fly2.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

*sigh*



I've just finished the last one. T'was lovely.



The out-takes are quite amusing, and most of them are on youtube.



OMG Squirrels!

It's only 90 seconds so worth a quick look to see what I mean <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Just for a taster, here's the intro:



"The maidens that gather in the virgin Mary's garden all have angelic smiles today as they pass through the tall gates.

Their pure bodies and minds are protected by the pure, dark-coloured uniforms.

They are careful not to show the pleats of their skirts.

Their white sailor collars should always be tidy.

Walking slowly is preferred here."




This is the most violent scene from ep. 1

It's probably not your thing <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>
