    Welcome back! I didn’t know that One More Time, One More Chance was a hit song in the 90’s, but I did know that it existed before 5 Centimeters Per Second. I only knew because I was trying to find a CD single with its instrumental track, lol (I still suck at singing it — it’s such a tough song).

    Looking forward to hearing more, whenever you get the chance XD
