Kono Oto Tomare! Series Review

As someone who isn’t a huge fan of school based anime and even less a fan of school based anime that focuses on the over-used plot line of the danger of a club being shut down, oh the horror, it seems weird that I got into Kono Oto Tomare.

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 11

Curry and Pancakes For Friendship? Hitoribocchi Episode 9 We’re making pancakes and curry (not at the same time) in this episode of Hitoribocchi.
