Thoughts on Bloom into You: Regarding Saeki Sayaka Volume 2

The second volume of Hitoma Iruma’s Bloom into You: Regarding Saeki Sayaka puts the focus mostly on Sayaka’s high school life, particularly her first year and her thoughts and feelings towards a certain girl.

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Episode 2: The Bear Visits the Adventurers’ Guild

I was not impressed with the first episode of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear, with the way it just jumped deep into the story. Don’t know who was responsible for that decision, but perhaps they should have a think about some things.
