Obsessed with Shoujo: Manga Recommendations

I primarily use myanimelist to keep track of the anime that I watch, as well as, to give me recommendations on what I should read next.  Due to MAL being down, I was stuck having to venture out on my own and find more manga titles to read.  During those painfully long five days and excess scrolling on MangaRock (highly recommend this app), I finally … Continue reading Obsessed with Shoujo: Manga Recommendations

November 2017: Favorite Anime Characters

Although I have quite a few favorite anime characters, I only ever get around to writing one “Favorite Anime Character” post a year.  My MAL character list can only have so many characters.  It is truly a shame, since I always have a hard time choosing which favorite to rank above the rest.  It is like choosing a favorite child; something you never want to … Continue reading November 2017: Favorite Anime Characters
