I’ve decided to move Suggested Reading from Saturday to Sunday, as Saturdays are turning into days that are just too busy to get these posts off.
This week. In personal news, I started college again, and have a sinus infection virus thingy that has me really sick and is not going away. Kyubei, I’ll become a magical girl to have a non-deficient immune system. As these things tend to go, I try not to be worried, but I can’t help being a little, and between some personal drama (I’d be better with these personal drama things if each time it didn’t involve the revelation of someone having sunk lower each time then I thought possible), I’m at a low point right now.
In the anime world, money is being raised for Japan, Yu-gi-oh is serious business, and blogs hurry to get their season previews out at as the first of the new episodes are released yesterday and today. April’s Fools Day came and went, with a lot of Kyubeis in the blogsphere. Also, MAL may or may not have been bought by Funimation? Is this an April’s Fools or not? Personally, I like April’s Fools that are obviously fake and funny. I dislike ones that may or may not have the potential to be true.
Without further to do.

Can Anime and Religion be combined? My answer is that if your religious, you can’t help but see religion everywhere. It’s a side effect of the whole thing.
