Well, it’s time to completely sabotage my reputation. I’ve been wanting to write this post for quite some time now, but y’know, nerves and all. There’s always this fleeting feeling that someone might label me a hypocrite, a filthy plebeian, or worse yet, a hater. Yeah, sorry fellas, but I just couldn’t get into these anime.
