Went to visit my 90 year old grandpa today and got him to tell me all his stories from the Second World War. He was a freedom fighter and boy did he do some crazy things.. It was an amazing experience, for someone as into history as I am, to finally sit him down and hear everything straight from the source. How they hid weapons from the Germans under the attic floors, lined up with the pipes so the metal detectors wouldn’t find them.. His account of the liberation day brought actual tears to my eyes and he even made me laugh at silly anecdotes and games. I know he’s not gonna be around much longer, so it felt great to feel like we share a passion and that I know him a teeny bit better <3
I love that in the anime, we can finally see them carrying the evidence from the court record. Phoenix actually owns a bag and doesn’t just have a bunch of shit in his pockets. And for bigger things like the metal detector, they find other ways to carry it around.
