Chuno: Episode 6
by | February 4, 2010 | 61 Comments

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 10

That just speaks for itself, doesn’t it? Hehe. Heh. I find myself more and more glad that Kang-ha was such a grumpybutt early on, because it makes his funny moments now that much more awesome. It wouldn’t be nearly as gratifying, for instance, to see that look of frustration on... More »
