How many posts have I made now saying that I'm "taking a break" or "I'm done with the blog?" I don't know and I don't really feel like counting, but it's higher than I would like to admit. For quite a while there in 2018 we were on a roll, then I accidentally burned myself … Continue reading On (Partial) Retirement and The Future.
Last year I did a month filled with theme posted and I had a lot of fun. It was called "Go Nag-April" where I reviewed or just talked about a myriad of manga and anime from the mind of Go Nagai.
