Rent-A-Girlfriend Volume 1 Review
Rent-A-Girlfriend offers an entertaining read with a unique set-up. If you’re looking for a new long-running romcom to replace the recently concluded Domestic Girlfriend or just fancy something in the genre, then this is certainly worth a look. There is plenty of potential for ups and downs and I’m looking forward to seeing how things develop for the cast.

Snow White with the Red Hair Volume 8 Review
Volume 8 of Snow White with the Red Hair shifts focus to Obi to deliver a thoughtful and entertaining look at how he has been changing lately. For anime fans, this instalment also kicks off a brand-new arc that wasn’t adapted. This time around there is something for everyone to enjoy.

The Dragon Dentist Review
The Dragon Dentist is an interesting anime but suffers from a disjointed plot and short runtime. However, if you’re interested in dragons or looking for something a bit more unique to watch then this is certainly worth picking up.

The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 1 Review

The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 1 Review
While The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 1 gets off to a grim start there is undoubtedly an interesting isekai story underneath it all. How much you like it will depend on how much you can put up with plot conveniences and injustice toward the protagonist. However, if the premise sounds like your kind of series then it’s certainly worth checking out.

Perfect World Volume 1 Review
Perfect World offers a realistic and honest look at living with a disability. Rather than shy away from the hardships of a relationship with someone in a wheelchair, Perfect World embraces everything to offer a satisfying read. While I have some small issues right now, given time, I think this manga could become something incredibly promising.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Light Novel) Review
Overall, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is a must-read. Fans of author’s Hajime Kamoshida’s other works will enjoy seeing similarities in this new story, but newcomers are also sure to fall in love with the cast and tale on offer. This isn’t the type of light novel we see often and it’s one desperately needed in the current market.

At Night, I Become a Monster Review
At Night, I Become a Monster is a fascinating read. It’s a mystical story that doesn’t go where you’d imagine from the synopsis, but it’s just as captivating as Yoru Sumino’s I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. A must-read for fans of the author and supernatural dramas!

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san Volume 4 Review
Volume 4 of Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san feels like more of a fan book than it does a conclusion to the overall series. Some readers will be disappointed by there being fewer chapters for their money, but if you’re heavily invested in the series then there is still a lot of fun to be found here.

You Call That Service? Volume 2 Review
You Call That Service? Volume 2 isn’t as strong as the first book, but if you’re looking for a new romantic comedy to enjoy then it’s a worthy contender. However, if, like me, you’d been hoping for some more focus on the vampire elements from the first volume you may be disappointed.

My Hero Academia: School Briefs Volume 4 is a worthwhile companion to the latest arc of the anime and for those looking for more stories set during the school festival.

The Reprise of the Spear Hero Volumes 1-2 Review
The Reprise of the Spear Hero’s manga adaption proves a worthwhile read for fans of the franchise. Being less spoiler-ridden than its light novel counterpart this proves an easier sell to those who might not be up-to-date on The Rise of the Shield Hero and simply want to see more of Motoyasu.

Wise Man’s Grandchild Review
Wise Man’s Grandchild is a fun isekai adventure. While the series doesn’t offer anything particularly new, it does a good job of bringing the best parts of the genre together. With some impressive animation and an entertaining collection of characters, this is one every fan of the genre should have in their collection!
