RWBY Volume 5 Review
RWBY Volume 5 juggles a lot of elements that ultimately don’t always pan out, making this one of the weakest seasons so far. Hopefully it's merely a blip on the radar and not a sign of things to come.

RWBY Volume 4 Review
RWBY Volume 4 may not be as explosive and dark as Volume 3 but it’s a great follow-up that properly sets up the pieces for the next chapter of the story, with good emotional arcs and fun fight sequences.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower Review
If you love Ghibli, desire more of it, or are simply willing to look past this movie's Ghibli-related beginnings, then you’ll find a charming, magical and fun family movie with beautiful animation from a studio that clearly wants to make more delightful movies in the future.

Flip Flappers Complete Collection Review
Despite its potential, Flip Flappers is a hard series to recommend. If you’re an avid Magical Girl fan and want something a bit different, this series might possibly fill the void, but it will only be fondly remembered by a small core audience in years to come.

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust Review
It’s a shame that this release lacks the Japanese track, and the Blu-ray conversion is far from perfect, but if you’ve been dying to update your old DVD copy, or have never acquainted yourself with Vampire Hunter D, there’s never been a better time.
