    Another experimental review concept, I've been a fan of Anime and Manga for years now and I know there's a giant collection of BL Manga ranging from excellent narratives to scary rape fantasies. I'll gauge with my first review if there's an interest from others in my views on the subject. Again, my interests range across the genre from romance, contemporary, historical, fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and everything in-between.

The End of October is a dark mirror into the current COVID Pandemic, it didn't get everything right, but it is quite scary.
