That line from the opening is EXACTLY what I thought of when I saw the picture, ah my god... His face, so perfectly determined...a very cool picture.
It brings back memories of when I was a senior in high school and I brought in this anime for us to watch in anime club (I was president so it's not like they could say no ) and I summarized the show and said how excited I was to share it, and they just mocked it for Weed's name/made drug jokes and laughed at how the dogs' mouths moved. I resented them for days.
I kind of wish I could go back in time with this picture and show it off as I was describing the show. Like, a cool advertisement for the "product" I was trying to show off to them. They would have ooh'd and ahhh'd at this, I know.
