I am very thankful to have the chance to meet the awesome Shu who became a very close friend of mine and that we’re able to chat with each other every single day about nothing at all.
I am very proud of my little scanlation group, Echochi and I hope we’ll continue to grow or at least, maintain the pace this year. Thank you so much to my lovely staff and readers who’s been supporting the group.
I am glad my little blog as finally moved towards a direction, I guess? I think I’ve reviewed more titles in 2011 than in 2010. Hopefully I’ll manage a review once a week this year. Not going to put that into my new year resolution though… XD
Met a lot of awesome people online, thanks to Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi even though my love for the series is waning, it’s the people in the fandom that’s causing me to hang onto it. You guys know who you are!
