by | December 27, 2008 | 21 Comments
Episode 5 had more of a comedic tone than the previous episodes; it lost a bit of its dreaminess. I didn’t mind it so much, although I preferred the tone established previously, and hope that this shift is a temporary thing. I don’t want the quality that drew me to A Star’s Lover to fade,...
