Weekend Wrapup: Kyubei edition



Welcome to another Weekend Wrapup! I hope you've thought long and hard about what you want your wish to be! I mean, sure, you could wish for something silly like a cake or your crush to be healed, but think about it long and hard. What do you really want to wish for? I know: links! Lots and lots of links. Luckily for you, you won't have to wish for them, I'll give them all to you for free! Anything to keep you free of Kyubei's grasp for a little longer, because as we all know...

"Being meguca is suffering."
