Review: Romantically Apocalyptic

REVIEW: Romantically Apocalyptic, by alexiuss on deviantART I stumbled across Romantically Apocalyptic on deviantArt a year ago.

An Awkward Tomato’s Presentation of Noragami – Allison Ji

So I’m here today to talk to you about a very important topic. I’ve been trying to get people to read Noragami with me for a while now, but when people ask me what it’s about, its pretty hard to explain the premise.   If you look on for a summary: “Yato is a […]
