I watched Gegege no Nazo. I have to be careful when making comments about movies I’ve seen because I don’t want to spoil anything.

“Utte deru” makes it sound like the battle is just getting started, but the kanji “hit then leave” makes it seem like you’ve already won.

I’ve been listening to “Superman” by Tempalay nonstop. What a great song! Highly recommended!

I ended up missing out on eating the Misokin this year. I don’t want to rely on a reseller, so I will just hope they go on sale again.

Chapter 1 was hard to read, and I messed up setting up my pages. It’s embarrassing, and I have no excuses. I’ll do better.

“Mistletoe” isn’t four minutes long, so other Christmas songs have been added.
