Thanks to the mysterious HessianD, who posted this completely great drawing to commemorate the site’s more-or-less-tenth anniversary today. It is, of course, Rorita in the classic A-Ko pose which every anime schoolgirl is contractually obligated to express at some point or another: running to school, chomping a piece of toast(yfrog) as a hasty breakfast because she’s late for class.
I believe the word you’re looking for here is “sublime.”
Like link banners, gift art is another old-school Internet tradition I’m sad to see fade away. I can’t think of a more appropriate way to commemorate the anniversary.

Wow. Just… wow.
But is it really anniversary art without a whole buncha katakana and HIT!!!!!!!! after it?
However, if someone can provide actual documentation of a schoolgirl doing the late-to-class-toast-rush, they may trump this.
I know that’s usually in reference to site visits, but… yeah. Astounding job, Hessian.
I’m almost sad that he made a return visit, since registering for the sole purpose of posting that Cloud picture and then disappearing into the night was just too cool. But coming back to post awesome art is always forgivable.
Great, now I have to watch A-Ko again. Thanks HessianD.
That is some mighty fine work. I only ask though, who the heck is “Rorita”?
The praise is well deserved. Timely and well executed.
Wow, I had completely forgotten that Toasty had a last name besides Frog. Much less that it was Frogschmidt.
I don’t know exactly what this is, but it sure looks cool….
The heck? Where did Kishi’s post go? I swear, this blog software.
Apparently, you’re not allowed to include more than one hyperlink in a comment. I’ll just repost the more obscure of the two:
I like to think all of us Gamespite bloggers and issue writers are just Parish taking this fictional characters thing to the next level.
Amusingly enough, just a couple of weeks ago in Sapporo, a troupe of 30+ people decided to do exactly that. Just for kicks.
Thank you for entertaining me for a decade.
