People Hit Each Other With Swords
If you’ve been around my blog for any real length of time, you probably know that I don’t discuss every manga chapter that comes out. Part of this is due to the time it would require to discuss absolutely everything, but mostly it’s because not every chapter contains something that I can discuss.
