Since I expect there will be quite a few posts in this thread, here's a bit of a preface:

1) Even though this is a kind of a free arena and finishing the game made us less grumpy, we are not any less forgiving of stupidity. While commentary and followup questions are fine, try to not clog up the thread with unrelated posts, questions that have been answered before, or any general silliness.

I watched it, but I liken watching most anime to eating fast food: satisfying and even useful in the short term, dangerous for your health in the long term. K-ON! falls within the "most anime" bracket. So, pretty sure I don't count as a fan.

Judging from what I know of everyone's tastes, I don't think many of us have even watched K-ON, and I'm almost certain nobody is a fan. Maybe someone is a closet fan?

e: Actually I probably need a second hand's fingers to count the people who probably watched it, so it's not that unlikely.

Thanks. I did a search on the forums here, but didn't find that.

Sun Setting

Post by poopooface » Mon May 26, 2014 11:44 am

When you meet Lilly in Act 1, the sun is setting before 6:30. This occurs during summer in the Northern Hemisphere. How is this possible? I know it seems like a minor complaint but it's been bugging me for a while.

Sendai is fairly far north (38.2667° N), and sunset occured at 18:56 local time on 2007-06-05. So, the sun would be starting to set before then.

The latest that sunset is is 19:04 local time.

(I know, it's not canonically in Sendai, but it's been suggested to be there, and the date that Tanabata occurs in Lilly's route would have to be consistent with being in Sendai.)

I can personally attest to the sun setting quite early in northern Japan.
Part of it is the Latitude and the proximity to the eastern border of the time zone.
Also, they don't have DST.
