The Anime Laws of Physics

Here are select Anime Laws of Physics:


#3 – Law of Sonic Amplification, First Law of Anime Acoustics

In space, loud sounds, like explosions, are even louder because there is no air to get in the way.

#11 – Law of Inherent Combustibility

Everything explodes. Everything.

#12 – Law of Phlogistatic Emission

Nearly all things emit light from fatal wounds.

#15 – Law of Inexhaustibility

No one *EVER* runs out of ammunition. That is of course unless they are cornered, out-numbered, out-classed, and unconscious.

#26 – Law of Feline Mutation

Any half-cat/half-human mutation will invariably:

1) be female
2) will possess ears and sometimes a tail as a genetic mutation
3) wear as little clothing as possible, if any

  5. Yes, the root of this episode was wholly kurobara-hen… and I liked the episode in general since it did what I had desired for after episode 3: Take a breather and focus on the roles that are already there instead of introducing even more.
