The things we do for love

Abandoned fandoms may be the best after all, now there's no such thing as an undiscovered one. The local video store had some Kenshin DVDs so I watched a couple last weekend- the first two OVAs (western packaging is immensely uninformative about just what you're getting) and several eps from first season. The artwork is better than good and anyway, you know, Kenshin. An institution. (I know, so is Gundam an institution and you don't see me watching any of it. I am large, I contain multitudes.)

So I took them back on Sunday and went to see what else they might have in the series. The smallish anime section was being blocked by three large young and talkative otaku of various sexes who needed to comment on every cover they pulled out, which was trying; but said otaku also revealed that the unlabelled drawers below the counter held the VHS selection. So I scuse-me'd and grabbed the Rurou section to peruse elsewhere.
