  2. Thank you for including my post (even though it isn’t a legitimate OWLS post)…but I have to ask, is it really alright for someone to submit a post on someone’s behalf like Irina did here? I think this might’ve been the first time it’s happened for the Showcase…

  5. Sorry I’m late to this. Thanks for the link! 🙂 I was tagged for this on Twitter & didn’t realise it would be anime posts (my Cronenberg post feels out of place. Lol). Great site! I’ll definitely be checking out the posts linked above as anime is something I’ve been getting into more & more in the past few years of my blog. Although I suppose my anime taste is quite mainstream… 🙂
