I see nothing confusing about this.
Can't say I do, can't say i can't either. Taking the lines(per line) literally one can see the riddle in the song. Although, I interpreted the song differently from yours


Quote:
I looked at the world through apple eyes
And cut myself a slice of sunshine pie
I danced with the peanut butterflies
Till time went and told me to say hello but wave goodbye

A thousand sugar stars
Oh put them in a jar
And then whistle round the world
Oh whistle round the world
I'm a little wolf inside a girl, you say
And off I'll go from June to May
Oh whistling round the world
quoting this part only from LKK's post, didn't really get what the first is about. My take on the "Peanut Butterflies" is that she's dancing with peanut coloured butterflies


comparisson with foods and nature maybe?

`Well, there's the Horse-fly,' Alice began, counting off the names on her fingers.

`All right,' said the Gnat: `half way up that bush, you'll see a Rocking-horse-fly, if you look. It's made entirely of wood, and gets about by swinging itself from branch to branch.'

`What does it live on?' Alice asked, with great curiosity.

`Sap and sawdust,' said the Gnat. `Go on with the list.'

Alice looked up at the Rocking-horse-fly with great interest, and made up her mind that it must have been just repainted, it looked so bright and sticky; and then she went on.

`And there's the Dragon-fly.'

`Look on the branch above your head,' said the Gnat, `and there you'll find a Snap-Dragon-fly. Its body is made of plum-pudding, its wings of holly-leaves, and its head is a raisin burning in brandy.'

`And what does it live on?'

`Frumenty and mince pie,' the Gnat replied; `and it makes its nest in a Christmas box.'

`And then there's the Butterfly,' Alice went on, after she had taken a good look at the insect with its head on fire, and had thought to herself, `I wonder if that's the reason insects are so fond of flying into candles -- because they want to turn into Snap-Dragon-flies!'

`Crawling at your feet,' said the Gnat (Alice drew her feet back in some alarm), `you may observe a Bread-and-Butterfly. Its wings are thin slices of Bread-and-butter, its body is a crust, and its head is a lump of sugar.'
Quoted from Through the Looking Glass. Someone mentioned Alice, which reminded me of this part.

I've been aware of this series for awhile but I only recently got to sit down and watch it and omg! I love this show. I couldnt even marathon this, cuz I didnt want it to end (just finished ep 13 half a hour ago). So, finding out there's a new season certainly is very welcome news.

This. Usually, I skip OPs after the first time, unless its quality and Tabi no Tochuu is definitely QUALITY. I cant help but watch it and (try) to sing along everytime. It'd be awesome if the new OPs/EDs were near that quality.

I dont know much about the novels, but I'm sure I'll give them a read soon.

Will miss Kazuya Kuroda's character designs, but so far his replacement seems to be heading in the right direction. I dont know much about Brain Base, just that they do in-between animation for Soul Eater, so I'll have to wait and see. What's the major opinion of Brain Base around here? No one seems to be objecting, so they cant be too bad.

I'm not sure about brain's base and i haven't seen much of eureka 7 and one piece which have parts done by Imagin but i did notice some things wrong with the animation in Ookami to Koushinryou although it was very good most of the time.
One example is in the last ep where Horo is holding onto Lawrence's jacket with her right hand but then shortly after we see her holding her mug(barrel?) or beer with her right hand and then it goes to a view of them walking and she's still holding onto the jacket with her right hand. Not a big deal but maybe Brains base will fix small things like this.

I really really hope they don't make a bad second opening or choose a bad song because it seems quite often that second openings are worse than the first one, and i love the 'tabi no tochuu' opening

As for the ending theme I didn't really like it at first but later it grew on me and i like how they used the drawings similar to ones from the light novel.

I do hope the second one will sound good on a piano though! I still don't know how they're going to top it though.

I'm just starting on the violin but sometime in the future when I'm good enough I'll try to play this on the violin and see how i can apply the beautiful voice of the violin to the song.

Yea I hope they don't drop the standard of the opening, but we'll have to wait until April or maybe March to find out what opening song they've chosen for the opening.

Do you have the sheet music? I've been meaning to learn it (I already know the words by heart ) but I haven't gotten around to it. Well, that or something from Fate/Stay Night, which had a great soundtrack.

April? Sniff... So long... Sniff...

Well, FMA2 + Spice and Wolf 2 in April, good month

@ END song of first season, the best song in any anime I have seen so far! The voice singing it, just so adorable! Wish that if they will release W&S in US, the same VA do the english cast

Do hope that second season will contain as cute song as the first one

The flash video of the official site was updated.

Is this a new character design?

If it is so, I can hardly distinguish it.

Sideburns may be a little fluffy.

Maybe its just because of the flash but both their faces are a bit wider than before and Horo's nose isn't really done well and i'm sure there are tiny tiny alterations but i don't think it matters all too much.
They typed out 'Holo' nooooooooooo...

Technically, if they dont do that part here and then, when else do you think it will fit to make that mini story animated? An OVA or something like that, naturally.
