I was watching Yumeria the other day, and, as usual, I noticed something odd.

Neneko holding a 765kg mallet from Yumeria

A mallet is a typical slapstick instrument in anime, but it usually isn’t labeled with a specific number. This is not to say that there aren’t mallets with numbers or other labels (Kaori’s mallets in City Hunter usually have numbers on them), it’s just that 765kg seems like a particularly specific number. I suppose it could be random or the product of an animator’s subconscious, but I think it’s intentional. I wonder what it means…

As I ponder the meaning of meaningless things, go take a look at the new spatula I found, and the typical Pic of the Week.
