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!

No Game No Life Zero Review
After a couple of years break the popular No Game No Life series gets a second anime, this time in the form of a prequel film. Ignoring disappointment that they’re not continuing forward and instead looking back, how does No Game No Life Zero stand on its own?

Bleach – Volume 74 Review
Our shores have finally made it to the end of Bleach, but is the 74th volume of this long-running series a fitting send-off? Does it tie up the current arc well and deliver a satisfying final goodbye? The answer to some of these questions may disappoint…

Dragon Ball Z Kai – The Final Chapters: Part 1 Review
After a couple of years break, Dragon Ball Z Kai returns to UK shores to present the final DBZ arc in cut down form: the Buu Arc. That being said if you’re expecting the same sort of release at the other three distinct arcs in the series then you’ll be in for a shock, and not a particularly pleasant one…

Naruto Shippuden Box Set 33 Review
Naruto Shippuden returns to disc format with fifteen episodes that’s roughly half manga adaptations this time. Is that a good thing? Well, yes, obviously, though the way they’re woven into the story is like someone constantly walking into your room and pressing pause button every half an hour…

Rokka – Braves of the Six Flowers Review
Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers starts off with a straightforward “chosen heroes gather to defeat the big evil” plot, but actually spends most of its 12 episode run on a “whodunnit?” plotline, and frankly ended up all the better for it. Let’s see why… without spoiling too much!

Dragon Ball Super – Part 3 Review
Dragon Ball Super finally reaches brand new material with “Part 3”, and with it some new characters and settings, but a familiar plot… That’s right: it’s tournament time! (well more “five on five elimination match time!” really…)

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin I – IV Collection Review

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin I – IV Collection Review
The prequel: a phrase that often causes more eye-rolling than excitement, followed by the sentence “that’s great and all, but does that story really need to be told?” Well, Gundam The Origin is a six-part OVA series set before, and leading straight into, the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. These first four focus on the backstory of one of the lead characters: Char Aznable, but does this need to be told, and more importantly, is it any good?

Naruto Shippuden Box Set 32 Review
Naruto Shippuden’s 32nd release is almost entirely filler, despite what the front cover wants you to think. The “New Chunin Exams arc”, as it’s often called, concludes at Episode 413, giving a whole two canon episodes! Is this filler arc worth sticking with, or are you going to buy the set for two episodes' worth of content? Let’s find out if either are going to be true…
