Penguin Highway Review
If you love the surreal nature of Masaaki Yuasa’s work and the more whimsical nature of Studio Ghibli or Makoto Shinkai, then you’ll likely find a lot to love about Penguin Highway.

Get in the Netflix! A look back (and forward) at Evangelion.

Get in the Netflix!  A look back (and forward) at Evangelion.
As streaming giants Netflix prepare to put Evangelion back out there for a whole new generation of fans, we here at Anime UK News thought it was a good chance to reflect on Eva, hopefully provide some words of explanation for newcomers and also offer some personal thoughts on what the show has meant to us over the years.

Ring: 20th Anniversary Screening Review
Luckily, the outdated technology of VCRs and square TVs are not the most horrific scare of this movie; Ring is the epitome of slow-burn horror with its 20th anniversary screening being a delightful reminder of why it was such a big hit back then.

Wish Omnibus Review
Wish isn’t a series that’s likely to become your new favourite CLAMP manga but it’s a delightfully simple, fun, beautifully drawn series that easily pulls you into its story with likeable characters and genuine relationship chemistry.

The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen Volume 1 Review
This prequel to the horror indie game is a gruesomely delightful book with a simple but effective story, dark imagery and strong lead character. The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen is best enjoyed when accompanied by knowledge of the game, however, so if you’ve yet to dive into it, there’s no time like the present.
