"I do definitely have questions and there are definitely holes right now. Not that I mind too much, I had too much fun to care."
"It's cosy, in a way that I need right now and will always clamour for; the warmth it creates isn't a blanket - it's one that gently caresses the heart and holds you tight."
"It's in the carefully handled tone where Fragtime finds its success"

"Kuutei Dragons is consistently stunning"
