This is a Story About a Woman Called Yumeko…

Midari and Yumeko Yumeko understood Midari (Russian roulette, Zener ESP card deck), who lost a pretty ugly bet to Kirari. Most people write Midari off. I even wrote Midari, off at one point. I feel guilty about that now. But Midari has a good heart. She saved Yumeko, in Ep. 4, of Season 1, and … Continue reading This is a Story About a Woman Called Yumeko…
