    Most Friends Hate Anime

    It's hard to find people who are the same gender and same age that like what you like. I actually don't have a single friend who likes anime, which really sucks , im also 13 so people think it's weird when im already reading lemons and watching anime. T.T

    Back To My Roots!

     I want to get back into Anime but it's kind of hard to find a good new anime that will keep my interest. The only people I have to ask around here are a few fan girls who only watch the cutesie stuff like Fruits Basket.
