For years I have seen this gif right here and, one day, I said to myself "It is time to watch that anime".
But, I didn't know that anime's name. The only thing I knew was the gif, a girl with an eyepatch.
So, I just googled "anime girl with eyepatch", google gave the name "Another", I downloaded it and watched.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good, just fun. The surprise was PA Works doing real anime before trying to copy Kyoani in every single way.
