Good to see Penguin Highway up there, I haven’t seen it just yet but I’m planning to give it a watch a couple of weeks from now.
Kimi ni Suizou wa Tabetai, Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho and HisoMaso are also nice additions to see, but a little disappointed to not see Maquia here even among the selections.

Hisone to Maso-tan deserved recognition

@shanimebib @Kuma Thanks for the notification, since Nagi no Oitoma is not approved yet, I cannot list it (there are two entries of the same title when trying to add it to manga relations). I have fixed it on the post for now.

Edit: Added both Nagi no Oitoma and Metamorphose no Engawa.
