“Given” fans won’t want to miss this!–Live Rendition of “Fuyu no Hanashi” feat. Centimil & Mafuyu’s voice actor, Shogo Yano

“F*** Me Up ‘Cause I’m so Used to Feeling Nothing” — Generational Honesty and Angsty Expose with EYES ft. Rawska

I hopped onto … Continue reading I am the Prince of Despair, apparently. (Self-adaptation of “Destinare!” (DwD) to English)

✿✿✿✿✿✿Hello, anime compatriots!✿✿✿✿✿✿ I've been playing around with Audacity again, and while I'm still debating various songs to practice and cover (including Sakura Kiss and You Raise me Up), I decided to throw another title into the ring.
