  • Awesome year

  • The journey of a weeb is arduous to say the least. There will never be enough time or money courtesy of mangas, their usually banger adaptations and waifu merch. But even living in a car with said waifu merch, its worth it. To many more years of anime and manga! Cheers!

    Alecks

  • This year has been amazing and packed but my favourite anime of this year was "Tokyo Revengers", The theme of changing the present by going into the past and the fact that all this was done by a delinquent is just fascinating and Baji's passing made it better and more tragic.
