Another year has past as all. It might have been great for some and not so great for others. Let's go into the New Year with a clear conscience, strip away all the fears we have, and prepare to start anew. Make resolutions that will make us all stronger. But first we must take what we have and decide if this is the way we want to spend the next year or toss it away and create something better. I'll start:
This year started off oddly with my first playthrough of Katawa Shoujo. I know you guys are sick of hearing about that game, but it means a lot to me and I plan on replaying it as a toast to 2013. It's honestly how I got into anime and, since this is the animemanga channel, I'll leave KS as my starting point. I met people on the KS channel and actually immersed myself in the FJ community, even if it was just exclusive to that channel. Those people became my friends and we shared many stories together. We grew as individuals together, trying to make ourselves better by talking about KS. Most of these friends were already watching anime and I followed suit. I've always been interested but never really knew how to get into it. Anyway, I've watched many animes since then, learned a lot of life lessons from them about love, suffering, and to never think you're worth less than you are. I've been hurt and I've hurt people. I've had missed opportunities and missed chances. I've tried to become a better person and through that have damaged my inner self. 2013 is going to be a year to remember for a number of reasons, but looking back, I don't think I have many regrets. My only regret is that I crippled a friendship that could have been great. I'm thankful that I'm finishing the year with the both of us on good terms. I hope to end the next year the same way. Always remember that there's always someone who cares about you and is willing to listen. You are not worthless. You are a person who deserves as much love as anyone here. Happy New Year, animemanga. My taste, as always, is still superior.
