Orient Volume 2 Review
As our heroes Musashi and Kojiro prepare to step out on their quest to rid The Land of the Setting Sun of the demons that have ruled the country for the last 150 years, this volume finds itself being burdened by all the exposition required to move the story forward. However, it still offers plenty of interesting character development as it introduces a stylish new addition to the cast.

Paranoia Agent Review
Satoshi Kon’s Paranoia Agent is a fascinating rollercoaster of a psychological thriller that expertly ties its character-driven story together into the realms of insanity and the paranormal to the point that you begin to question your own sanity.

Cagaster Volume 1 Review
Already adapted into an anime by Netflix and Gonzo, Kachou Hashimoto’s source manga that tells the tale of humanity warring it out with giant mutant bugs has a bit of a rough start, devoting more time to character building than getting moving with the central plot - but it at least seems to have enough potential to improve in later volumes.

Chidori RSC Review
This “cute girls do cute rifle shooting” show is an enjoyable but flawed slice-of-life series that, while it won’t be enough to satisfy true sport nuts, will at least crack a smile in those who enjoy similar shows in the genre.

The Demon Girl Next Door Review
The Demon Girl Next Door is a slice-of-life comedy that offers plenty of laughs with a cute and colourful cast of characters that you can really have fun with, however, the fact that the series ends just as it really gets started will no doubt frustrate a lot of viewers.
