  • I've watched many anime in my life, many good, many bad. Many that were wrong to the source, and some that out shined the source. From the years of struggling to find anime, to now it is everywhere. I am glad ^w^.

  • It's been one hell of a year, though I can't really remember what happend since my memory sucks. It seems like sequels and isekai are the most prominent anime this year, but I'm not complaining, since I'm a sucker for fantasy anime. I just hope 2022 will be an even better year.
