Reflecting On J-Drama: Why Didn’t I Tell You a Million Times

If you’re at all familiar with my interests then you may know I am a big fan of mystery, romance and crime dramas.

Also as of this update, I’ve decided to scrap writing out Japanese titles in romaji and instead just putting them in kanji so they’re more easily searchable for those interested!
