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!

Steamboy Review
"From the Director of Akira" it may be, but that's the only thing the two have in common! Steamboy is a fun family adventure film with stunning visuals, but what's it like to watch? Read on, and if you want, take a drink every time you read the word "steam"... then don't drive.

The Red Turtle Review
The Red Turtle is a Studio Ghibli film, though it was created and directed by award-winning Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit instead of the Ghibli team itself. It contains stunning visuals and masterful direction, and is entirely presented without any spoken dialogue. Overly artsy, or genuine masterpiece? Read on!

BlazBlue: Alter Memory Review
“Uh-oh, a fighting game adaptation!?” I hear you cry? Yep! It’s a valid worry, though this time you might get lost in the story rather than roll your eyes at the lack of one. Does this make BlazBlue: Alter Memory the first great fighting game adaptation? Well...

God Eater – Part 2 Review
Ufotable brings more God Eater to our screens, adapted from the somewhat popular RPG game series. Characters wielding over-sized swords and guns fighting large CG monsters, plus an actual story and character development! But does it end on a good note? (well, as good of a note as a "most of the human race is dead" story can get...)

The Anime UK News Team Reviews Netflix’s Death Note

The Anime UK News Team Reviews Netflix’s Death Note
If your favourite part of the original story is the L vs. Light mind battles and the creative ways they try to ‘one up’ each other, then you’ll most likely hate this version. If, however, you enjoyed more of the world building, seeing how the Death Note could be used in creative ways and don’t mind encountering fresh (if controversial) takes on the characters, this film could satisfy your next popcorn movie Netflix night binge.

Dragon Ball Super – Episodes 100 – 105 Review
As Dragon Ball Super reaches triple digits the “Universe Survival Arc” pushes forward into relentless action as the 80-person, 8-universe battle royal continues. One universe has already been completely erased from existence by virtue of their defeat, and the seven that remain are fully aware of what results in failure. It’s a very odd scenario, even for Dragon Ball, but amazingly it manages to get even weirder with some of the new characters…

Dragon Ball Super – Volume 1 Review
Dragon Ball Super's manga version arrives in the UK with, appropriately, Volume 1! It covers the first three arcs of the anime, though the first two are extremely brief (to say the least in Resurrection F's case!), all with Toriyama's trademark art style perfectly presented by his personally selected understudy Toyotarou. Let's take a closer look at both the story and how it does and doesn't differ from the anime...
