Is it proof I'm a pathetic creature when rather than enjoying it I started this cynical "this is a shoujo anime cliché" tangent?
Oh, and why it's awesome to have one favorite song for years upon years:
I cranked it on my MP3 player during my break and found out there's a flute part in the background. It's probably actually synthesized, but it was very nice. (And just around Christmas I really started to listen to the chanting in the background during the second part.)
