GTO Drama

If you are even a bit into japanese TV or animation, you must have heard the tile Great Teacher Onizuka. It is a world famous series with a manga, which started in 1997, a japanese TV drama (TV series) which was broadcasted in 1998, and then a 43 episode anime which aired in 1999-2000. And now, in the summer of 2012 they have decided to remake the TV drama into a more modern version with a slight change in story. It is being broadcasted all over Japan on Fuji TV every tuesday at 10:15PM (literally its being aired as I am writing this, too bad I don’t have a TV set in my room ).

Yuru Yuri Physics – почему небо голубое?

July 6th, 2012

So I was watching Yuru Yuri ♪♪ and then this randomly appeared….. It reminded me a lot of my high school physics teacher Shepelev.

Вообщем во время просмотра аниме Yuru Yuri ♪♪ появилась вот такая сценка….. Она мне очень силно напомнила нашего любимого учителя физики из 10й Рижской средней школы – Шепелев. Когда она показала систему координат, я сразу подумал о Шепелеве, а потом еще и вопрос почему небо голубое! Сразу вспомнил уроки физики XD
