Convention Tales #14: Short Stories From Anime North

It's hard to believe that this week marks about two years since the last time I officially travelled to a convention - I do not consider my short foray into Kimikon in 2019 as part of that, as I did not buy a ticket to that.

I find the selection of this date for this type of post rather fitting, because of a particular incident related to him. Two months ago, I came across one … Continue reading Uniformity With God’s Will In Anime #1: Sakura Kinomoto
