Being old, many of my favorite anime episodes are also from the past. Today's missive is no exception. The anime I am reviewing today is the stuff that fan-service legends are made of.

I first became enchanted by these two when I was just leaving adolescence back … Continue reading Anime Fans Rejoice – Your Service is Here
