OK, who let Tenchi go exploring the shrine grounds unsupervised again?

That sounds like an awesome summer festival.  Fireworks over a hot spring geyser.

You know what this means - hot springs episode!

It's just a quick peek.  What harm could there be?

Now it will be the opening episode.

only if it also restores HP and MP!

also I can't speak for this little town, but the fireworks in the nearest city (Hakodate) are fantastic.  matsuri stuff for days.  this is a very fun time of year to be in that region.

Apparently a Gundam has been standardized at 18 meters tall as a unit of measurement.  Who knew?

/I am 11.1% of a Gundam in height
//looks like they've got the weight standardized too - 25 metric tons
///I weigh approximately .36% Gundams
////I very nearly didn't type the decimal there - almost accidentally won the fattest Farker ever award

That would be a great episode of Mu Shi Shi.

A geyser? Sure. Why not? We had our Friday morning earthquake this morning, and with all of those rocks and magma shifting around, and all that water, something has got to give way and start spewing now and again, and it is going to happen in some remote location, or right next to a shrine.


/ Pretty sure my next door neighbor has tapped a hot spring that he uses for heating and bathing, but he is pretty secretive about it. He has an outbuilding that seems to have no other function but to make hissing noises.

Hope we get updates on this.

"Gigantic geyser erupts from Shinto shrine's forest"
Is this a euphemism?

Oddly enough, not this time.

I sense a disturbance in the force... It's like a thousand Ranmas all born at once...

So, it's Bizarro America, where the Japanese rich steal water to bathe as opposed to the American poor who steal cable (really, DLing torrents these days).

Did you ever think it got the name Shinto because everyone screamed 'shinto! We gotta go now'? No, you only think of yourself

I don't blame that bottle one bit for going off a bit quick considering

It's like Nature is talking to me. I suppose the obvious message is that we are all going to be in hot water soon.

It's Japan, why are people surprised by an old geyser?

I see Tenchi has already been referenced.  My work is done here.

So this wasn't the shrine that has the parade with the giant wooden penises?

What *is* she wearing?
Is the champagne for the wrap party for the Logan's Run remake?

I doubt it based on the lack of side boob or thigh.
