For my annual celebration of The END Day, I talked about dropping the Higurashi manga. To make a long story short, the Higurashi manga couldn’t make a long story short. Posts forthcoming on both the new anime and the old anime.

Update: Oh yeah, speaking of time loops, I finally finished Muv-Luv Alternative. Posts forthcoming.
