A Sister’s All You Need Volume 5 Review
Although this instalment of A Sister’s All You Need barely comes in at 140 pages, a lot happens. While I wouldn’t mind a return to the usual crazy hijinks the light novels are known for in Volume 6, for now I’m happy to have had the spotlight on the series' most undeveloped character.

The Garden of Sinners Movie Collection Review

The Garden of Sinners Movie Collection Review
Overall, The Garden of Sinners is a mixed bag. The films are interesting but the quality varies a lot and they’re not for everyone. If you’re a particular fan of Ufotable then they’re well worth watching for the animation, but that won’t overcome their shortcomings for everyone.

Promare Theatrical Review
Promare is a film not to be missed. There is nothing quite like it out there, certainly nothing which is so much fun for the entire runtime. Hiroyuki Imaishi and Kazuki Nakashima have once again created something truly unforgettable which will be a joy to watch for many years to come.

Goblin Slayer Season 1 Review
Overall, Goblin Slayer offers a dark fantasy series with plenty of blood and guts flying around. If that’s your cup of tea then you’ll certainly enjoy this one, but failing that, there isn’t a great deal of substance here.

My Hero Academia: School Briefs Volume 3 Review
Overall the third volume of My Hero Academia: School Briefs is a must-have for fans of the franchise. With such a large variety of stories, there is something for everyone this time around. The bonus chapter based on the fantasy ending is worth buying the book for all on its own!

Beastars Volume 1 Review
Overall, the first volume of Beastars is not going to be enough for you to decide if you like the series or not. There are certainly some interesting concepts in play and it’s a unique story, but I’m not convinced that’s quite enough for every reader.

O Maidens in your Savage Season Volume 4 Review
Overall this volume of O Maidens in your Savage Seasons spends most of its time setting up for the following release, which is by no means a bad thing. Fans of Sonezaki and Kazusa will enjoy Volume 4, but those looking for focus on the other girls might be disappointed.

Kokoro Connect Volume 7 Review
Overall the seventh volume of Kokoro Connect is one of the best yet. The stakes have never been higher as the relationships built up through the books so far are put to the ultimate test. This series continues to be one of the more engrossing, thrilling stories in the light novel market right now.
