Texas-chan trying to grumpily shoot the weed off her arm is way cuter than it has any right to be.
How do I fund an anime based on this?

Tumbleweed get *everywhere*. I was at a bus station in the LA Metro area, with no non-golf-course green spaces within 15km, and a tumbleweed rolled by.

I low-key love how the personification of Texas is shooting the tumbles off of her body, because it is a very accurate portrayal of my home state
