Junketsu no Maria – The Trials of a Witch

Log Horizon 2 – 25 (END)

「開拓者たち」 (Kaitaku-sha-tachi)
“The Pioneers”

Koufuku Graffiti – 12 (END)

「しみしみ、むぎゅっ。」 (Shimishimi, Mugyu.)

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – 21, 22 (END)

「雪 & 春風」 (Yuki & Harukaze)
“Snow & Spring Breeze”

Seeing how episode 21 and 22 could be lumped together as one SUPER episode, it makes sense that the post would come out that way, right? In all seriousness though, Takaii here, back to cover the final two episodes for Shigatsu due to some unforeseen technical issues.
