I usually hate love triangles. They are especially frustrating when I have a character that I am cheering for and that character ends up being the character left out by the end. You know, shows like Toradora with Minori Kushieda or Nisekoi with Onodera or Go-Toubun with Miku or any romance with childhood friend characters,… Continue reading An Easy Introduction to Love Triangles – Manga Review and Recommendations
