Spring season: Why I haven’t blogged anything yet

Three weeks at least into the new season and I haven’t done a post yet so I feel like I owe people an explanation. It’s all simple really, I haven’t done a post because nothing has attracted my interest enough to make me want to write about it.

So I’m going to tell you why I thought the first ep of Kaichou was about 500 times better than the beginning of Todoke.
