Misc. Kat stuff

(What am I doing up at this hour?! Good question... and no, I don't have
a good answer. In any event...)

Why might the second-season SK animation be better than the first-season
animation? I'm not sure if anyone's mentioned this yet, but I'm very much
tempted to say that at least one of the reasons is that Callie's drawn with
much more curves than in the first season. Compare her, *ahem*...
bustline between the first and second seasons, and you'll see what I mean.

Edo commented on how Felina might have been the main reason the
second-season SK episodes were better than the first-season eps.
Interestingly enough, when I commented on the show on rec.arts.animation
over a year ago (and at the time I was *really* lucky if I received even
one response, either through a followup or in personal email), someone else
commented that they didn't like Felina. She was too "PC" for their taste
(and I assume that this comment referred to Felina as being a strong female
lead -- not your stereotypical helpless female).

I comment:

and Edo adds:

I was thinking more along the lines that Kat stuff could become collectible
items. In the antique stores I've seen very old toys that I used to play
with while growing up in the disco era (i.e., the 70s). But they could
also be rare (as it is, I believe the SK poster and SNES game are difficult
to track down, for example). And keep in mind that the poster and game
only came out within the past year!

How valuable might these become? I personally don't know, but there's no
way I'm planning on parting with the SK merchandise *I* have. <grin>

And another idle early-morning thought: what do you think might go into a
Kat time capsule? I'm assuming that Megakat City is based on current times
(i.e., the 90s) here.
