Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis Review
Perfect Blue the book is not as psychologically or emotionally deep as its movie adaptation, but it’s interesting to discover where the original spark for the Satoshi Kon film came from. It’s rare to see original Japanese literature make its way over here, so pick up a copy if it piques your curiosity.

Skip Beat! Review
Skip Beat! is quirky, funny and enjoyable, with easily likeable characters and great lessons on how to be the best person you can be for yourself, and no one else. It was a Kickstarter success for a reason; don't miss it.

The first volume of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc is a delightful success; from the lovely art and the characters to the new story’s beginnings – all of it feels like a genuine continuation that CLAMP wanted and felt creatively compelled to do. If you’re a CLAMP fan, do not hesitate to pick up this volume.

Ronja the Robber’s Daughter Review
Ronja the Robber’s Daughter is not the brightest spark in Studio Ghibli's repertoire. Despite some good ideas and lovely animation, this is primarily aimed at very young kids and therefore anyone outside that demographic would most likely find this 26-episode venture hard to get through.
