OKC Group Header FINAL

YAY! Kimura Takuya won the theme poll! I hate to say it but I was surprised to see how many Kimura fans there were out there. Not sure why, but I thought he was my own personal Japanese bias.

I just can’t stop thinking about it, finding out where it went wrong for me. Lots of others love this show. I know I saw it on plenty of others best of 2012 lists. Why do I have such issues with it? I really think, while it’s fresh in my mind I want to do a quick rewatch and then rip it apart, look at it’s insides and report my findings. Continue reading
