Volume 50, chapter 494 The Two Worlds, chapter 495 Further Thought

Classic Disney songs in Japanese


While randomly searching around the Internet not too long ago, I stumbled across just that…Disney songs in Japanese.

Happy Valentine’s Day, from MAY! ^_^


(Renton and Eureka are so cute! ~^.^~)

Happy Valentine’s Day, from Mainichi Anime Yume! I don’t have a Valentine, LOL, so it’s just another day for me, but you gotta have some appreciation for The Day of Love, ne?

“Love – a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.”
