A 1998 song, out of place? In an adaption of a story made in 1994 and 1996? I thought people who liked old school (1994–2003/1996–2004) DC best wanted more from that period. Guess there's no avoiding critique from those fans—even if you chose to do a broad thing/concept that they like, they'll get you for the how/the execution of that broad thing/concept. How was the rest of Episode One, then? Yay or nay? Or was it a mixed bag?
I think it was about as "misplaced" as Mune ga Dokidoki—that is, it wasn't "misplaced."
I guess slow isn't your thing, then (at least when it comes to this specific song).
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
“Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
