    More than welcome, but tbh that is moreso "doing my job".

    You'll definitely enjoy it.
    Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! is very similar, but focuses more on the humor.

    I applied some edits to the picture:
    Spoiler for Picture:

    And I also made a quick tutorial:

    Notes: pay close attention to the layer the editing takes place on.
    1. Right click your image's layer to Duplicate.
    2. Choose Brightness-Contrast from the Colors tab.
    3. Choose Edit these Settings as Levels.
    4. Click Auto.
    5. Move Input Level to the left until it looks better.
    6. Select Gaussian Blur from the Filters>Blur tab.
    7. Adjust so that the speckles are reduced, but make sure that the fine details such as hair are preserved.
    8. Choose Unsharp Mask from Filters>Enhance tab.
    9. Adjust settings so that the crispness of the hair and other details stand out. If the Radius is too high, the shadow placement will look off, if the Amount is too high, the sharpness will produce glare around the edges, the Threshold will reduce the other two effects if it is set higher.
    10. Adjust the Opacity settings for the edited layer.
    11. Right click on the edited layer and duplicate it.
    13. Adjust the Opacity for the duplicated layer.
    -(Now you can apply 12 to the duplicated layer.)
    -12. Select Value from the Mode drop down menu on the layer settings.
    14. Duplicate the original, unedited layer (at the bottom).
    15. Set this layer's Mode to Addition.
    16. Adjust the layer's Opacity settings.
    17. Duplicate that layer.
    18. On the newly Duplicated layer, set the Mode to Overlay.
    19. Adjust the layer's Opacity settings.

    They're Mizuki Himeji, Minami Shimada, and Shoko Kirishima from Baka Test to Shokanju The show had two seasons, the first in 2010 and the second in 2011. It was a fun little comedy series.

    The Opacity tool is a bit confusing in GIMP, but it is in actuality a slider.

    I'm pretty sure that Ram and Rem first show up in Re:Zero Episode 4. I hope that helps!

    No problem. ^_^
    I actually used Corel for a decade before learning it had the layers feature (it was disabled under the customize settings).

    Okay, I just installed Gimp and checked out the tools.
    To adjust the brightness:
    Click on the 'Colors' tab, then 'Brightness-Contrast', choose 'Edit these Settings as Curves', click 'Auto', then move the gray selector (the one in the middle on the top bar), to the left until the brightness looks to your liking.
    Another feature you might want to look at is JPEG noise removal:
    Note, that this will make the picture look almost plasticy smooth, so I recommend using the layer opacity trick I mentioned yesterday along side of it, setting the opacity to around 54.0% should be pretty good. The important thing is to reduce as much noise, without losing too much detail, especially around the hair, in fact you'll probably want to apply an 'Unsharpen Mask' both before and after doing this, and on the base layer (unedited layer) as well.
    Also, when using Sharpen, I always prefer the 'Unsharpen Mask' tool over the regular one, just make sure that 'Amount' is set bellow 0.15; you can find Unsharpen Mask under 'Filters' then 'Enhance'.
    One other tool that you should find useful is the 'Heal' tool, this is used to remove spots and blemishes from pictures that were taken with digital cameras; you can find the Heal tool in the tools palette, it resembles two green band-aids, forming an 'X' shape, to use the tool, hold 'Ctrl' and click a similar area that doesn't have a blemish, then click on the bad spot to cover it over.

    Here is the picture you shared earlier, I made a few corrections using the above mentioned tools in Gimp.
    Spoiler for Picture:

    Two final notes regarding Gimp.
    1. The drop box for Layer Filters is a little difficult to notice, but it's right above the Opacity bar.
    2. When saving your picture, choose 'Export As' from the File menu, 'Save As' is for Gimp format work files only, I also recommend saving in PNG whenever possible.

    I never really had a need for GIMP, as most of it's the features are copied from Corel, so I haven't installed it yet on my current computer, so I'll see about installing it tomorrow to determine where the features are located.

    I feel that X2 is a little easier to use than GIMP, but with the later versions of Corel, they have completely messed up the ability to customize the interface.

    The clarity looks a little strong.
    A quick tip on editing graphics, make sure that you have Layers enabled first, duplicate the graphics and modify it on the new layer, above the older layer, which should remain unaltered.
    You can also limit the effect of contrast enhancement, by setting the above edited layers opacity and filter settings.
    Sharpening the layer tends to produce a white glare around the edges, so I like to set my sharpened layers to a Darken filter, which blends it with the lower layer, while setting the darker aspects to a higher priority.
    Here's a quick example:

    Spoiler for Sharpening Example:

    On the unedited layer, I think that the clarity looked fine, it only needs to be sharped a little; where on the second modified layer, the sharpness and clarity are too strong. So I suggest utilizing the layers option, which will allow you to tweak as you work.
