iv noticed that a long time ago.. there are many cliches in animes.. one of them is the festival. its too common in animes. the girl in yukata, her sandal strap would snap and either that would create a misunderstanding or make a couple.

i was so taking notes from that playa. too bad i didn't take the time to read the description cuz when that last ep rolled around i was like oooo yea playa playa ... (stab stab stab) OMG!... "5 4 2 PIMP DOWN! PIMP DOWN! POOKY BRING THE TRUCK!!" (** Katt Wiliams**) that show gave me nightmares

kekaishi (the main character always ducked class to sleep on the roof)
shakugan no shana (they ate on the roof once or twice)
GTO (onizuka always went to the roof to smoke bent cigarettes. is there even one anime out that has one strait cigarette in it? )
Da Capo II SS (has a roof scene... cant remember it though cuz i try to block that horrible anime outta me memory )

hehhe witch reminds me..when i went to school a retarded classmate of mine climbed up on the school roof and tried to jump, he also had a little table knife to defend himself from the janitor who tried to bring him down...but the janitor kicked his ass hehehe..so..but anyway that is so true it's almost like a must have in every series

Someone touched on this idea earlier in the post: maybe it's a kind of rebellion symbol? School roofs are usually off limits, at least in my country (USA). Our middle school was huge and had a very expansive roof, I used to have dreams at night about sneaking up there during lunch. Any rooftop is a secluded place, near the sky. In many anime it seems to me to represent freedom or rebellion, or may be used to signify that the action is taking place "outside the norm" and apart from (but close to) regular life and the eyes of others. Anyway I'm curious about anime symbolism, conventions, and "cliches", in case you cant tell

It's a symbol for a refuge, where characters in anime leave their worries behind. It's kind of a meditation room except it's outdoors and accessible to students.

The door to my school rooftop is creepy and dark.. So, I don't dare to try and open it.

Don't forget Ef. Pretty much all of the characters are related through a school rooftop.

I don't mind the setting though. What better place to have privacy than the roof?



toilet ?
