by Dr. Daedaluson December 4, 2013
There’s nothing worse than untapped potential. We Without Wings: Under the Innocent Sky falls into this category; it’s one of the most frustrating anime series I’ve watched as of late. I say it’s frustrating because the premise is actually pretty cool and inventive: A guy has the ability to travel dimensions, thus occupying four different […]
