So now that I've made six different layouts for LLOM, I think it's about time I settle on one. I understand these hoverovers are something you guys enjoy, so I'll keep doing them. In the next few slices, I'll explain why Anthy is the prominent figure here. This is an Akio layout. Anthy is simply a means to an end. I could remove both his face and his hand and you'd still know he was there. Also, I've been trying for ages to sneak a picture from my NASA folder into a layout. Starry night, holy night...o wait holy has no place here!
See? You don't even have to see the rest of his face to know the expression he has. I love it. Yes, I added little pearly things to Anthy's hair. Shut up, they're cool. A woman's shoulders are the front lines of her mys-fuck, wrong devil. This, my friend, is an arched back. Look at her. And he's not even touching her yet. Menu's over there, dear.
I wish a gorgeous sadistic man like Akio would stop by and come-or it come and stop by? Damn, I'm confused. Hi Anthy! You seem less blank than usual. Akio's not Indian. He's just a black man that's also a vampire and thus pale for his race. You know, evolution shows women to be just as promiscuous as men. Had I known what an unholy pain in the ass this layout would be to code, I'd have...well..done it anyway.
Look, a chopped hovering gif. You guys just don't know how much I suffer for this stuff. Actually, I wish I was back in the city.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger...might be a bad choice of music considering what I'm doing. MY ROOM IS A MESS. Well no, but my mind is. I DON'T WANNA GO TO CLASS. Fuck school. I'll like it better when my campus has a phallic tower and hot dean. ....but I'd settle for at least a hot student council official. I don't even have those. I really should be getting dressed for school... ....ok, a song titled 'Weapons of Mass Distortion' is no better... No more hovers! (They don't work in Firefox anyway.)
    People who know me well (that's all three of you...) know I have a little hobby. A fanatical obsession, if you will. I study body language. I've watched people, yes. Observed trends in behavior and how they relate to personality and circumstance, yes. But I've also actually studied body language in a scholastic sense, and though an interest pursued by a teenager with little else to do doesn't grant a college degree, I would say this is a subject I know quite a bit about.

    Of course it's also a subject with virtually no application whatsoever in anime. More often than not, exaggeration's the name of the game, and body language is used to distinguish one character type (charming bishonen) from another (clumsy but adorable youngster), rather than using it to display that character's specific personality. As usual, SKU kicks the trend. It manages, with it's terrible budget and questionable quality of animation, to nonetheless make the cast real through the way they move.

    Naturally, this means I've more than gone into the details of the body language of my favorite character. I believe this section in length would outshine many dissertations, and most people will find it similarly dry and uninteresting. I don't apologize for this, since you won't read further if it's not something you're interested in. For the five of you who are, what follows is a breakdown, feature by feature, behavior by behavior, of Akio's body language. Spoiler: Sex shows up frequently.
