      1. Instead of the manga I read some of the Spice & Wolf light novels. Sadly it wasn’t the same as watching the anime.

        I’ll read the Sekirei manga eventually. The problem is that I will get weird looks because I normally read manga during my break at work.

      2. I love how you read them at work! I have long since learned to ignore the weird looks, I also found like minded people and we now have a workable system where we share 😀
