Mouretsu is Lessetsu

<@Kurogane> man, why is the preview for Mouretsu 2 more interesting than Mouretsu 1

Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na Anime

It’s a lot of fuel to achieve escape velocity.

With the delectable news that the Yoake VN was nearing translation completion (although apparently “editing” was in order, and at a complete standstill), what better way to control my impatience than to watch the anime? Continue reading
