Pokemon Movie 14-16 Collection: Black & White Review

Pokemon Movie 14-16 Collection: Black & White Review
Overall Pokémon Black & White Movie Collection is a mixed bag. Older Pokémon fans like me will be left wanting for much better content and days gone by when Pokémon movies were actively good, but the younger/newer audience are more likely to get a kick out of Ash’s latest adventures.

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review
Overall this live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is an enjoyable watch. It doesn’t necessarily have the same pull as the original manga or its anime adaption but for existing fans it’s interesting to see the story adapted in a different way.

Occultic;Nine Part 2 Review
Overall, Occultic;Nine continues to be a show that I can’t recommend to everyone. I think sci-fi fans will likely get a lot out of it, and the gripping nature of the story will pull you in. Just don’t look too hard at the story or it’ll give way beneath you.

Tokyo Tarareba Girls Volume 1 Review

Tokyo Tarareba Girls Volume 1 Review
Overall, Tokyo Tarareba Girls is a fun read with an interesting concept behind it. While I’m not necessarily its target audience, fans of Princess Jellyfish and Higashimura’s other works will no doubt find a new favourite here.

Girlish Number Review

Girlish Number Review
Girlish Number is a fun and exciting look into what it means to be a voice actor. While the story isn’t always realistic, it’s so enjoyably crazy that it really doesn’t matter.

Hyouka Part 2 Review
Without putting a single foot wrong, Hyouka works to capture your heart and entertain you with a strong cast of characters and well thought out scenarios. If you’re a slice of life fan or even just a Kyoto Animation fan, this series is for you.

Kabukimonogatari Review
Overall Kabukimonogatari was a real delight. While the series continues to be consistently interesting from volume to volume, this one tries to do something a little bit different and that works well for it.

The Dark Maidens Review

The Dark Maidens Review
Hardened mystery fans like myself might see through The Dark Maidens' tricks too quickly but there’s something to be said for the fact the story does draw you in. If you don’t cotton on to its endgame then there’s definitely a compelling story of betrayal and mystery here for fans of the genre.

Anime Review

Kiss Him, Not Me! Review

Kiss Him, Not Me! Review
Kiss Him, Not Me! is a true delight for shojo fans. While there might be some questionable content in terms of its realism, the series is undeniably great fun and not as shallow as the first episode or two would suggest. Shojo, especially good shojo, is so frequently not brought to home video in the UK that this is a rare treat all fans of the genre should give a go.

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku Volume 1 Review
Wotakoi is a heartwarming comedy series with a firm message to convey in that love is difficult - not just for otaku but for everyone. Your hobbies can be judged and make people run for the hills but that isn’t right, and Wotakoi does its best to show you the great times you can have when the people around you do accept and understand you.
