With 2019 just around the corner, many bloggers are reviewing what their year was like on their blogs (stat-wise / professionally), their viewing habits and what they hope for in the future.

Fumikiri Jikan started off fantastically. As I described in my first impressions, we had an episode filled with laughs, tension and romance. But the following 11 episodes, each about 3 minutes long, were a roller coaster of disappointment and mundanity. The premise of each story is simple, two people (strangers, friends or lovers) wait at… Continue reading Crossing Time (Fumikiri Jikan) Review ~ Is it time well spent?
Spring has ended and now begins the hot days of Summer – the time to go to the beach, take great afternoon naps and eat ice cream. At least if you’re in the northern hemisphere, down under we’re all freezing our butts off.
