hanayamata-05-naru-tami-hana-yaya-yosakoi_club-celebration-victory-excited-cheerThe first day of 2015 means it’s the first day we can turn, look back, and reflect upon 2014 as a whole.

12 Days of Anime (2014) – Day 9 – Nagi no Asukara’s Timeskip

nagi_no_asukara-03-manaka-ena-laughing-playing-happy-splashing_water-wet_clothes-blue_sky-clouds-gorgeous-beautifulTimeskips are among my favorite narrative devices in anime.
