    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Episodes 1 - 12 Review

    The adaptations of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure have returned to our screen via a Netflix 12-episode drop. Beginning the anime version of Part 6: Stone Ocean, these episodes feature a female lead character and female-heavy cast along with a prison setting, so do these departures work in the...

    Robotech - Part 1: The Macross Saga Review

    Robotech means a lot to American fans of a certain age, while Macross means a lot to Japanese fans of many ages. Here in the UK, however, neither hold massive sway, least of all Robotech, which was barely featured on TV here. So how does a Blu-ray release containing just the original 80s dubbed...

    My Hero Academia – Season 4 Part 2 Review

    The second half of My Hero Academia’s fourth season is a more relaxed affair after an action-packed first half, but is that a bad thing? Continue reading...

    Neo: The World Ends With You (PS4) Review

    In a rare look at a recently released video game, it’s time to answer this question: how can you follow up a 2007 Nintendo DS game on home consoles in 2021? Given the core input method at the very least would have to change, it would be a hard ask. Let’s see if Square Enix and the team at...

    Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World Volume 3 Review

    After a reasonably long delay (especially if you wanted the physical version!) the final third of the “Can’t Fear Your Own World” Bleach light novel is here and manages to not only tie up its own story but it also reveals some long-awaited Bleach lore, details and backstory on top… Continue...

    Akira Limited Edition 4K Review

    Akira is a landmark film, not just in anime but in general. It inspired so much after it and it’s so well loved that there is every chance you already have a copy on your shelf right now. So the real question is “should I buy the 4K version?” Let’s find out! Continue reading...

    Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World - Volume 2 Review

    Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World is a trilogy of light novels set shortly after the end of the manga’s final arc, and with its second volume the story starts kicking into full gear - but is it all too much to follow? Continue reading...

    My Hero Academia - Season 4 Part 1 Review

    Mega-hit My Hero Academia returned for its fourth season roughly a year ago on TV and has finally made its way to physical media. Does the latest go-around live up to all the lofty expectations held by fans? Well, for this half anyway, I can say a resounding “Yes”. Continue reading...

    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2202 – Part 2 Review

    The second half of the second series of Space Battleship Yamato, otherwise known as Star Blazers, adds on the tension as the three-way war between Earth, Gamillas and Gatlantis rages across the galaxy. The only question that remains has to be: does it finish the plot in a satisfying manner...

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Set 4 Review

    Boruto returns for his fourth batch of episodes on Blu-ray here in the UK, bringing with him a partial focus on a few of his allies, which is refreshing! That being said, if you are expecting that means the story seen here diverges from the usual plot points found in Naruto/Boruto, you might be...

    Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World Volume 1 Review

    Bleach has seen something of a renaissance in the last half a year, an anime adaptation of its final arc next year being the biggest news, but lost among it was an official English release of a trilogy of light novels that follow the story on after its admittedly weak conclusion. How does the...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...
