    Lycoris Recoil: Cute Anime Girls… with Guns!

    I’ve seen a lot of shows about cute girls doing cute things. I’ve seen them go camping, play sports, work out, etc. Shows like this are slow, calming, and fun.

Xarshel Ravenshadow, gnome professor of Transmutative Science at Morgrave University With respect, Xarshel Ravenshadow, I must disagree with you. The only good thing about owlbears is literally everything about them. Lore: Mysterious Nighttime Hunters Ferocious, aggressive, and stubborn, the […]
