    Dagashi Kashi (だがし かし "Cheap Sweets Candy" / "However"). Season 2.

    • Kyzer says:

      Starring Hotaru Shidare, "An eccentric busty girl who is very passionate about sweets and snacks."

      Co-starring Kokonotsu Shikada, "As a puberty boy, his interest in the opposite sex was enthusiastic, and he was agonized by the firefly's limbs and was soaked in delusions that were unbearable." (per Google Translate)

      Series 1 is a bit of a headscratcher. Each episode has multiple, minutes-long informercials on real-world dagashi products, so it feels like watching a suite of mandatory product training videos from a confection wholesaler or something. Apparently the series was single-handedly responsible for a resurgence in dagashi stores in .jp.

      That keyboard is clearly from some kind of hell dimension -- not only is there a 2.25-width Print Screen / SysReq key, but there's a second Print Screen key on the Function row.

        "Second Print Screen"? I think you mean PrSor. Not for use by peasants.

      • Adam says:

        When replacing the key next to the left Ctrl-key on my keyboard, the only spare I could find was a second Print Screen:

        I will be great at the internets too!

      Scroll House Rock

    • Nibby says:

      I hate to disappoint, they may exist, but I've never seen a "Scroll Rock" key in Japan, after using many weird ass keyboards. That said, JP keyboards are usually superior in having more meta keys surrounding a shrunken spacebar, but the ¥ key messed me up a bit.

      • jwz says:

        I can't stop thinking about this animation's keyboard. How do you screw up drawing a keyboard so badly? It's right there in front of you.

        • Nibby says:

          Especially when they meticulously drew the rest of the keyboard. Fuck. It can never be un-seen. I'm still obsessed with a key I think I remember on a Japanese keyboard from like 30 years ago: "Fast Fuzook". Was it really a key? Written in semi-abandoned half-width hankaku? Did I just dream it? What kind of bizarre hell keyboard was I typing on? Was I just still hung over from the late night forced karaoke drinking and/or buzzed from too many coffee drinks from the vending machine, mojibake swimming through my senses? It's a bad english transliteration. Why would someone do that?? Yes, that key will haunt me the rest of my life.

          But perhaps the vexing "Scroll Rock" is your "key" out of this twisted hell dimension. Perhaps if you pull this thread you'll find in an overlooked email from the 90's a perfectly done xkeycaps layout with this "Scroll Rock", from some semi-anonymous business card drone, from an obscure anime key caps cult company, populated by obedient inbetweener art zombies, and eventually, under the earthquake compensating foundation of the labyrinthine corridors of an underground office complex deep in the relatively clean and efficiently abandoned mall bunkers under Tokyo, you will find, in a box of random but maddeningly intentionally poorly transliterated keyboards, the exact keyboard, with that hideous key, which when pressed, will open up the portal, where you'll wake up back in the 90's, at the point when this insane timeline diverged from the real one.

    "Javascript is Civilization!" would make a great inscrutable bumpersticker. 'Overly earnest tech-bro or ham-fisted satire?'

    "The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will use an event-driven system architecture to provide efficient and flexible operations with a simplified, high-level ground command interface. In this paper we describe the use of an on-board COTS JavaScript engine, hosted within the flight software, to provide the event-driven operations for JWST." -- https://arc.aiaa.org/doi/pdf/10.2514/6.2006-5747
