There are amazing birds that people seldom get the chance to see. If you are on the verge of exploring the wilderness, you ought to know that you can’t get too close to the birds in order to observe them properly.

That’s because my biggest accomplishment is 2014 was finishing paying off my once massive credit card debt, which also has allowed me to finally get the smart TV I’ve long wanted; watching Crunchyroll streams on a 40″ screen is great (and when are we going to see a proper app from you, Funimation?), though any tiny flaw in the artistry is now much more readily visible.In the world of anime in America, the biggest developments were unquestionably on the Sailor Moon front.

The ‘real’ grassroots change came late in the game, with people realizing that idealism doesn’t put food on the table, that some of what the flower people shouted were good ideas, and some were bad ideas.
