Weekend Wrapup: fairly tsundere with a chance of moe


Welcome again to another Weekend Wrapup!

This isn't just a pile of links shoved unceremoniously into your proverbial laps like a slab of uncooked meat, oh no. This is a finely cooked and perfectly tender selection of the best stories and articles we served you this week, like a delicious steak! 

Did I just compare this post to steak? Yes, I think I did.

So put tuck your napkin in and hit the jump to dig into some great stories from the editors here at Jtor as well as some baby back ribs (that's you guys, the community! You're like baby back ribs. I think that makes sense).
