Future plans

Don't have any, really. This kind of feels like trolling but it is what it is.

I am not going back to scanlation. That is absolutely sure. Besides that, I don't have anything else to offer.

I could do some reviews occasionally, like one per month.
The thing is, though, this Blogger platform is just too barebone to do anything other than random rambling like this.

Don't know. I like the way it is now. It's not costing me anything.

China virus AKA Coronavirus AKA Covid-19

China virus is currently the hot topic in the world as WHO (A useless entity) has declared it a pandemic.

I'd like to talk about it a little as a South Korean.

In South Korea, the china virus isn't a big deal and I can tell you why the infection rate has already flattened out.

There have been good changes and, of course, bad changes. I hear its fan base is rather split, mainly on the shortened plot.
