Newfound Appreciation for Ginta

Standard

Yes, this is what happens when I am reading a manga and I have nothing else to say… I post on and on about it XD

So I’ll make this short. A picture is worth a thousand words, after all.

This manga or picture does not belong to me, I got it from the internet (namely Mangafox.com) and I linked it back to where I got it from. :)

I guess it counts as a spoiler, but most people know what was going to happen anyway :P I think this was a very sweet page and I just wanted to put it up here so more people who haven’t read Marmalade Boy will and so the people who have will smile :)

Clannad review!

Description off of AnimePlanet:

Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn’t take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well… Read the rest of this entry
