    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2202 - Part 1 Review

    The crew of the Yamato find out that you wait several millennia for an evil space empire to nearly wipe out your planet, and then two come along at once! Yes, just three years after the original conflict with Gamillan, the Gatlantis people are now terrorising the galaxy. Is this the law of...

    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 - The Complete Series Review

    Rebooting a really popular and beloved franchise is always a risk, so when it was revealed that a renewed and update version of Space Battleship Yamato (otherwise known as Star Blazers) was being made, most were rightly sceptical. Now the dust has settled, did they pull it off? Continue reading...

    One Piece: Stampede Review

    One Piece has been going a long time, so long that this latest film to hit DVD and Blu-Ray, titled “Stampede”, celebrates 20 years since the anime debuted, and while the film is mostly about celebrating the past, does it also hold together as a standalone film - or is it really just for fans...

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Part 3 Review

    Boruto’s third set arrives on UK shores and with it contains the end of the story arc started in the previous set, as well as a nostalgia-filled graduation exam mini-arc. But is it all throwbacks like the cover of this volume will have you believe, or does it have more substance than that...

    The King of Fighters - A New Beginning Volume 1

    King of Fighters – A New Beginning might be the most gamey-ist game adaptation of all time, but is the fact that this is an adaptation of the 14th mainline entry in the game series mean it’s not approachable for non-fans? Well… Continue reading...

    Transformers - The Manga Vol. 1 Review

    What happens when you take a campy 80s cartoon and create a manga tie-in? Well, a campy 80s manga with great artwork, but… well, little to no story. But is there more than meets the eye, or was that a painful attempt to reference the cartoon intro? Continue reading...

    Samurai 8 - The Tale of Hachimaru Volume 1 Review

    Yeah, I saw that. I'm glad I didn't somehow like it and end the review with "looking forward to many more releases to come!" or something :)

    Samurai 8 - The Tale of Hachimaru Volume 1 Review

    Samurai 8 is the next Shonen Jump story penned by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto (although it's drawn by Akira Okubo). Following up ninjas with samurai makes sense; following up ninjas with space-travelling cyborg samurai might be going too far… Continue reading...

    BLEACH to Return, and Tite Kubo's Burn the Witch Receiving Anime

    I hope they expand some of the fights and scenes from the Manga arc... Tite Kubo really rushed some stuff, the arc was full of "off-panel" fight endings and the like. The final fight especially was anti-climactic. Either way, looking forward to it, the Bleach anime was a big hit with me...

    New GITSSAC trailer

    I'll never not be amused to read the short-hand as "Git's Sack", but yeah, it look pretty bad. Really enjoyed the two live action Altered Carbon series' as well, but am similarly disappointed in how Resleeved is looking. Ah well...

    My Hero Academia - Heroes Rising Review

    It is indeed.

    My Hero Academia - Heroes Rising Review

    My Hero Academia is back on the big screen with its second cinematic outing - but is it just more predictable shonen spin-off action, or does Heroes Rising buck the trend and deliver something special? Continue reading...

    Dragon Ball Super - Part 10 Review

    It’s time to see multiple universes cease to exist as Dragon Ball Super’s final (anime) arc comes to a close with Part 10. Does the Universe Survival Arc go out with a bang? Try multiple bangs, in quick succession… With a Japanese vocalised rock song playing in the background… Continue reading...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Hmmm... not actually sure I like the boxes box. The logo being horizontal rather than vertical like the other sets will make it really stand out, same goes with the characters on the spine... I'll probably just get the regular box version and have it next to the Wing box. The Wing TV Series one...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'm definitely buying the Hathaway's Flash movies via import (presuming they will be offered), but I passed on movie versions of something I already own and wasn't that fond of the first time (though I don't think it's AS bad as a lot of people make out...)
