Gee whiz, you guys, with a name like DEATH PARADE, you’d think that GANG PARADE’s epic 200km team relay marathon doodad would’ve delivered a little more in the DEATH department than just in the PARADE.
Instead, I am pleased (/kicks can) to report that not only was the race successfully completed, and not only did nobody actually die, but it looks like it all went down without much in the way of incident at all!

The reward, a bouquet of onions; does Negicco know about this
I make light because it all ended safely. You may have been privy to the buzzing undercurrent of deep concern for certain members of the group, that nobody “pull a Wacky” or some variation thereof, referring to the member of the BiS Quintet whose marathon-induced injury began the chain of events that led to BiS shutting down for good* about 16 months later. It was really sad, for her and for fans. It did get us to where we are today, though, so thanks for taking one for the team, Wacky’s Leg!
Oh, and I’m really glad that nobody in GANG PARADE got hurt or up and quit or whatever. Now we just have to hope that nobody shreds their knee while kicking Watanabe in the nads.
