In keeping with the theme of exercise, I don't know if I would have joined in the early-morning stretches that I think are pretty common in certain parts of Japan, if they had been available here in Singapore. For one thing, waking up at six in the morning means floundering around in the dark, with maybe ten to fifteen minutes to spare before I have to catch the bus to school. When the weekends come, I generally either have extra-curricular activities (school band; symphonic, not K-On), or I want nothing more than to sleep until noon.
This may be why I'm not exactly the healthiest specimen around, I suppose.
I do appreciate that Hidamari Sketch Hoshimittsu introduced Arisawa to us in an actual episode (well, half-episode), since she seems pretty interesting. This could be because Arisawa has no idea what to do with her life; despite being ten years older than her, I am still in the same situation.
Finally, Yoshinoya-sensei can apparently be squeaky without footwear. Fushigi mystery.
