50 Questions

I wasn’t going to answer these 50 questions thing going about the aniblogosphere (there’s too many to even try to link to). I thought it was a waste of 50 perfectly good filler post material, many of which filler posts I had already written. Plus I’d already answered a bunch of questions sent in by […]
