Don't worry about the late reply, this is the first time I've checked it since I sent the last one haha. Things seem to have changed a bit on here, still probably not for the better. We may have to find some other way of chatting before this site really sinks. That's too bad about that place but I guess things would be boring if they always worked out. Which ones are you reading now that have official english translations?
I love anime and manga but that store is actually pretty far away from where I live crying looks cool though. Sorry it took me so long to reply, idk if I've just outgrown gaia or if management has really gotten that sucky, I'd vote for management, but it's not so much fun anymore. It's great that you're finding new places to hang out though, I remember you saying you wanted to explore more places 3nodding
Yeah renting is a great idea. When I took a class at the community college during high school I rented used books from the book store, it really does save a boatload of money. What kind of sports did you play?
