Celebrating Valentine’s Day

Ever since I became an anime fanatic, I started celebrating Valentine’s Day by giving chocolates to my friends. I first encountered the chocolate day when I read the story of Hime-chan No Ribbon. I was a high school student back then..

In Japanese tradition, the Valentine’s Day is popularly known as the Chocolate Day. Most of the anime that I’ve watched always includes an episode of this chocolate-giving day, and so I thought  of adapting  it as well.. ^^,

Comments:

I’ve seen this anime once only. hehe.. Hopefully, I could finish this anime soon. I’m still on the process of downloading it. Anyways, I’ve first known the existence of this anime from a group of children that we had conducted a computer training before. That is why I got curious of this because they told me that it’s a great anime. Well, let’s just see if it’s really that nice. ^_^
