Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 18

Primes and I are back with another pre-Christmas party episode! Primes: Let the Christmas-preparation hijinks begin! The overarching motif in this episode, I think, is the idea of roleplaying. Ami is the first one to bring it up with her accusation that Ryuji and Taiga are "playing house." She points out that Ryuji is trying …

Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 12 – Somnambulism, Motion Sickness, and Other Afflictions

Happy July 24th! You ask me what's happening on this day?
