My New Blog – Sekijitsu

 

If y’all wondering why I haven’t been posting here, or that my Heta no Yoko-Zuki blog is gone, it’se because I founded a new blog called Sekijitsu.

It’s been running for a year now and you should definitely check it out. We have a great team and we cover a lot of the currently airing anime, as well as some manga and a few recommendation and editorial pieces as well.
