It's been a few months since I last updated, so there's a lot to catch up on.

Rather than do a bunch of individual posts for … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature Catch-Up
For my latest CR feature, I returned to One Piece to write about Wano's significance in the broader story. Weird as it is to imagine, One Piece might just be ending soon(ish).
