Domestic Girlfriend Episode 7 Review - It feels like this anime put the accelerating drama on hold and decided just to let all the characters ruminate on the current status quo.

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 32: The Lull

Review: I've kind of been waiting for it and it finally reached us. The lull in this series. For all of season two it has been working hard at tearing me emotionally to threads and now we get this episode that just kind of bobs along with very little concern. While there is some dark … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 32: The Lull
