Nichijou: Fall Down Seven Times, Laugh It Up Eight

A story may hold different perspectives from different authors, but thanks to genre conventions these stories also maintain a kind of universal cohesion. Then, an ..

RWBY Chapter 2

RWBY’s manga will likely never be even the most compelling series running in Weekly Shonen Jump in English, but it still is a fun, slick reading experience.
