Filler post – the anime pregnancy meme

Since midterms have been going on this week and will continue to next week, I haven’t had much time for blogging.

Only two ended this week, so I’ll be reviewing the remaining four next time. So for now, what did I think of one of the most horrifying and one of the funniest anime I’ve seen in a while?…

I’ve touched on this topic in bits and pieces in other posts, but I don’t believe I’ve actually delved into it fully.
