  • Here we are with the fourth and final entry in the Tomoyo After Bookclub Podcast, discussing the After arc. This arc took a huge toll on me, and I was fresh out of my reading as of recording, so you should be able to feel my pain. Anticipate plenty of gushing over why this Visual Novel is actually pretty damn amazing and deserves more love. Your hosts for this podcast…

Your hosts for this podcast are Aspirety, Pepe…
