In my long-ago high school days I was a member of the anime club. Back then, our options were limited to whatever random VHS tape we could find, and one of them was a two-episode number called Shadow Skill. In it, a fighting chick trains a kid in the titular martial art, which was developed […]
Yukinari’s got the worst disease a man can get. Whenever he is touched by a female, he bursts out in hives.
