When I lived on the mountain, home-schooled, I spent the last year of my education learning the fine points of Photoshop and Illustrator as well as honing my HTML skills. I considered my HTML skills secondary to my Photoshop skills, but it turned out HTML is where I found my career. I studied a lot. It paid off. I had no social life, though, which I regret a bit. I’m still socially awkward. But I didn’t waste any time at least.
Princess Tutu is an awesome anime you should watch if you love fairytales, crows, ballet, Tchaikovsky and other classical composers, Utena or Madoka or any story where a girl has the power to write her own destiny. It starts off as a snuggly “magical girl” story but quickly evolves into a drama. If you were a fairytale princess who could save her prince, you would do it, right? But what if it meant you were destined to die in the process? This was the first anime I watched that did not end the way I thought it would.
