May has arrived and we’re back with two new reviews. Shinmaru took a look at Kuroko’s Basketball 2 which improves upon the first season in some ways and not so much in others. Meanwhile, I dove into the past and checked out Ie Naki Ko, a gem from the 1970s based on a classic French novel.
Also, a reminder that we are looking for a pair of talented new writers to join our team so if you would like to be part of the Nihon Review staff, check out the recruitment post and be sure to send in your application by May 16th. Come on, you know you want to!
