Japanese Melon Pan

For most of my childhood and well into adolescence, I loved anime and manga. Think: Sailor Moon, Hana Yori Dango, Honey and Clover, Bleach, Death Note, etc. (I could go on and on…) During weekends and summer vacations, I’d binge watch episodes and read for hours. And then during college, my roommates and I were totally into Japanese and Korean comedies and dramas. We would stay up well into the early morning, crying and watching these intense and addicting shows and series. And now in present time, thanks to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, binge watching shows and movies has become way too easy.
