2 Years of the Spellbook! (5th Day of Anime 2019)

Another delayed milestone. Part 1 of the saga here. After suddenly having to write most of the 12 Days of Aniblogging in advance, Aria was pretty tired of writing...but there was still work to do.

Poisoning the First Impression

If you watch a first episode because somebody else told you to, does that then wreck your first impression of a show?
