I think I've figured out Hijiri's little mystery. More on that later. The Fifth Kalpa is really pretty - they definately put the art style to good use there.
And I feel I must indulge in a brief, cryptic bitter rant, just to get it out of my system: I hate double standards. I hate that what would be totally unacceptable from me is acceptable from her. I hate that certain fucking idiots are encouraging her, and I hate that there's not one damn thing I can do about it.
And that is all I have to say on the matter. Things will look better in the morning, after I've had some sleep - they always do. And there will be fun holiday things to post ^^
