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!

Just in case you thought there wouldn’t be enough Dragon Ball coverage here at Anime UK News, we have a slightly belated look at the second volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga, released here in the UK on the 28th of December (and therefore taking a long time to reach my house through holiday post…) Two universes collide in a tournament with… actually no real stakes, this time…

Dragon Ball Z Movie Collection Four Review
DBZ Movie Collection 4, awkwardly collecting Movies 7 and 9 (leaving 8 to be paired with the other two Broly movies… next month!), is full of good action and loosely defined villains, as well as Androids and … very on-the-nose Space Pirates! Who doesn’t want to watch those?!

Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond Review

Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond Review
The two Genius Party films are short story anthologies full of new short animations created and/or directed by some of the best and well regarded directors and visionaries in Japan. These shorts range from grand spectacle to the relatable and human to the completely bizarre. There is no linking narrative, no one single art style, it was literally all about giving these people a platform to show off. Does it work? Well...

Dragon Ball Z Movie Collection Two Review
It seems Dragon Ball Z movie collections are like buses: wait for ages for one to turn up and then you get two (nearly) at once … with a third about a month later! Anyway, Movie Collection 2 contains the third and fourth movies released under the Dragon Ball Z label, “The Tree of Might” and “Lord Slug”, or the one with evil Goku and the one with evil Piccolo, if you wish…

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!

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...)
