LOL, nanikore just beat me to it . . .

*sighs* I guess I'll just stick to reading the manga. I at least thought that the first few episodes of the anime were ok but then I got kind of bored of it later on. I don't know, maybe this particular manga is just better as a manga than anything else . . .

I'm currently loving the Hachimitsu to Clover manga so I'm hoping that the drama at least retains the essence of it (since Jdramas are usually short, I'm not expecting a 100% adaptation of it). I can't wait until the rest of the cast if announced! So far, so good . . . glad to see Toma is going to b...
