    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection Review

    The sequel to the movie trilogy doesn’t ruin the original TV ending, or improve on it in any meaningful way, it sits comfortably in the middle; a 'take it or leave it' film that’s entertaining in its own right. Continue reading...

    Revolutionary Girl Utena: After the Revolution Review

    The way that After the Revolution sells itself, from the cover art to the blurb on the back, is quite different to what we eventually get. Overall, it’s a nice experiment, but not what all fans are going to be expecting for the series’ 20th anniversary. Continue reading...

    Chobits 20th Anniversary Edition 1 Review
