Not-So-Rabid Blade Fangirl
Taking a well-deserved break, I hope...
It's been literal ages since I've posted in here (same goes for everyone else too, haha). I just started watching 1 Litre of Tears and it made me remember the great times had in these threads.
I'm so out of touch with like any form of Japanese media that I don't even know where I'd begin to decide on new dramas to watch or anything. Heck, I'm surprised I've kept up with KR Gaim thus far.
So uh, yeah. Necro post and stuff.
