    Naruto Shippuden Box Set 37 Review

    Naruto Shippuden Box Set 37 is… not the final release of the series, despite the first volume of its sequel series being released after it. What Box 37 IS though is the final few episodes of adapted manga material, and the finale of the long… LONG Fourth Great Shinobi War story arc. How does it...

    Dragon Ball Super - Part 6 Review

    Naruto Shippuden - Box Set 35 Review

    Naruto Shippuden’s 35th two-disc release is, to the surprise of literally no-one, almost entirely filler. Unlike the previous box set though, the single canon episode on this set is extremely significant. Can you bear thirteen filler episodes for the sake of one good one? Continue reading...
