:wtf Thank you for doing this narunii, I look forward to what's going to be posted here.
That aside, the only one I'm not watching is Chihayafuru, not so interested in the premise but I'll try it someday.

I haven't watched Chihayafuru but I have read the manga. Even if the premise does not seem the best it won't disappoint, great series.
