Hello and welcome back to Otaku Thursday! For some reason, it feels like it’s been ages since we last did a First Impressions, which is weird because it really hasn’t! We did just finish out Hotsui Matsuri campaign at the top of the month, so maybe that’s it? I don’t know. Either way, here we … More First Impressions: Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer
This is the most on top of a First Impression I, Star, have ever done LOL. So let’s get right to it shall we! So this anime is very simple.

For those of us that are learning Japanese, I, Star would say that music is a really good way of practicing how to pronounce words. Like how some Americans learn Heart and Soul I also learned Neko Funjatta on piano and only remember the first verse in lyrics. But as I got older and started … More Hotsui Matsuri Day 2- Two songs that kids learn in Japan
