Review: K-On!

I like to think of myself as someone with pretty thick skin. Not in the sense that I’m an emotionless person who’s too manly to cry and devoid of empathy. What I mean is, it’s generally really hard to hurt my feelings. But I can’t lie on the internet (it’s the law), so I’ll be…

Review: Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu

Slice of Life is probably my favorite genre of anime. There is just something about slow day-to-day life that appeals to me.
