They Can’t All Be Natsume – Nor Do They Need To Be

Friday's Feature Banner Image

As a reviewer I try to avoid comparison where possible between one story and the next (and previously wrote a feature about it - comparing apples and oranges), but it is kind of inevitable that comparisons will be made.
