Lexemon’s Manga & Anime Blog

Hi! I’m Lexy.

My head is full of manga & anime knowledge. I’ve been watching it since 1997! I often talk about various anime and manga in my workshops, especially the ones that I’m currently obsessed by. So, we decided that a blog would be a great way for me to recommend and review, as well as dish out facts about manga and anime that you might not know.
