I’ve moved to a new place and have dispatched two Roombas. The fact that they act slightly different is scaring me a little.

The lack of seals on the finger case! How Jogo knew the number of fingers Mimi-Nana had given Itadori… So many errors!

Black Clover

I came upon a mysterious sea-roach-like bug at my studio late at night. I’m glad I was able to let it escape outside.

It’s hilarious how Uno’s face during a Smash Bros. match is as serious as when he’s skating in the Olympics. And he’s so good!

I’m sad I won’t get to see Tegoshi on ItteQ anymore. I want to see him be flirty and cool again.
