(A 6 to me means that this anime is slightly above average at where I am currently watrching)

What keeps me watching this anime, along with the reason why I decided to write this review is that it reminded me of one truly important fact, one I hope resonates with you in the future:


As this review is being made while this show is in progress, most of what I say is subject to change at my discretion. As the name of the anime implies, I truly did watch this anime "Just Because." (You can shoot me later for that). read more
