Cold Cobra

Having watched anime since it was airing late night on the Sci-Fi channel in the late 90s, I consider myself... someone who's watched a lot of anime, and then got hired to write reviews about them. Hooray!

Vinland Saga – Collector’s Edition Review

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Review
Dragon Ball’s latest cinematic outing is somewhat divisive due to its use of CG animation (and it’s use of the word “Super” twice in a row in its title… just me?) though what has at least got people to stand up and take notice in a positive way is an almost complete lack of Goku and Vegeta, instead focusing on the some of the other, long-neglected cast.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Review
Coming to UK cinemas this week is Jujutsu Kaisen 0, a rare Shonen Jump! movie that is actually canon to the anime its based on, and in this case is actually based on an earlier version of the original manga so it acts as a prequel to the core series, with a familiar supporting cast and antagonist but a whole new protagonist at its heart…

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 Robotech series fare? What is the needlessly complicated history of this show to begin with? Well, it’s funny you should ask…

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 h.a.n.d. were up to the challenge!
