[Repost, because this dumb hiatus is taking longer than expected. Also, for a short update on my life rn, it’s pretty busy. Birthdays, work and other stuff has been happening, but rest assured, I am still writing!] I finished Watamote a LONG time ago, and first things first, this is what struck me: Tomoko is a pathetic loner.

Excited to be back,but I need some time to adjust, so here’s for the new readers!] The very act of holding hands has been ingrained into us since we were infants.
