Love & Lies, Ep 2, is live at Anime Strike

So I checked out both episodes. I was genuinely impressed by the premier. It was emotional and dramatic. You really felt the heartbreak of the lead characters.

The second episode wasn’t quite as a good. It was more on the comedy side, with some occasional dramatic elements. There were also some plot points that just seemed a little odd. However, when you live in a country where the government chooses your mate, I suppose things might function a little differently.

I’m just interested enough to keep following this one.
