The "Three Musketeers" and Tohru from Fruits Basket, my new obsession!  They are, from the left, Hatori, Shigure and Ayame.  No, they're not the main characters, but I love them none the less!  The manga has not been licensed for English publication yet, but you can find the Japanese version for a decent price at Sasuga Japanese Bookstore.  The anime is available on DVD and is excellent, with many extras.  Check it out!

Hasta la Vista

Okay, I admit it. It seems I cannot serve two masters. LJ has stolen my soul. I haven't updated here in almost two months. So look for me here, update bookmarks, whatever.
