Spring Anime 2011 – First Impressions So Far

First of all I JUST seriously, seriously have to share this Shinigami Zukan. It’s a few weeks old – but anyway, I think it’s one of the best I’ve ever watched in the history of Bleach =D

It’s been quite awhile since I posted anything up – and honestly speaking, that’s only because I’ve lately been picking up new manga that I can’t believe I didn’t start reading sooner (Eden no Ori, Shibatora, Kuroshitsuji, Shion no Ou, Hokenshitsu no Shinigami, Doubt, Magico, Toraneko Folklore… etc etc).

City girl boots over to countryside, where she has to work in a ryokan under her grandma since her mom ran off somewhere with her boyfriend.
