It’s finally over! Oh man, I have some serious torn feelings about this. On the one hand, there were a lot of fascinating tidbits I learned in the process of working on this, and there were elements of Nora herself that I absolutely loved. On the other hand, it was frustrating as hell navigating the dated references and cringe wordplay.
As an aside, the author, Satomi Mikuriya, unfortunately passed away December 14, 2022, an eerie 2 days after I announced my intention to power through to the end of Twinkle Nora. Now I wish I got to it sooner. RIP, sensei.
