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.

Kino’s Journey (2003) Review
Kino’s Journey is a thought-provoking look at 'what ifs?' and the inner workings of the human mind. With a fantastical and mystical approach added in for some truly odd stories, it’s a series that is perfect for those into symbolism and strong metaphors.

Occultic;Nine Part 1 Review
Occultic;Nine is a thrilling journey of discovery, the paranormal, and what happens when a series makes no sense and yet keeps you entertained. While certainly not for everyone, this is an anime that just wants to show you something a little bit different.

Napping Princess Review
Napping Princess is an entertaining, family-friendly offering that only loses its way due to an unfortunate case of trying to do too much. If you can overlook this, then you’re in for a great time.

Fruits Basket Collector’s Edition Review

Fruits Basket Collector’s Edition Review
Fruits Basket is a sweet shojo series with a loveable cast of characters. Anyone looking for a typical shojo series might be disappointed, but that doesn’t take away from the charm on offer here. It’s a great release that’s only brought down by the lack of romantic development and some terrible video issues.

Princess Arete Review

Princess Arete Review
Princess Arete is a lacklustre fairy tale story that attempts to break the mould but doesn’t quite manage it, thanks to an overly long run-time and lack of meaningful character development.

Orange: Future Review
Orange: Future proves itself to be a worthy continuation of the original series. Filled with the same attention to detail and sensitive approach to difficult topics, this volume is definitely worth your time if you’re a fan of Orange.

Grimgar: Ashes & Illusions Collector’s Edition Review
Overall Grimgar: Ashes &Illusions might seem like just another entry in an overcrowded genre but thanks to some quality writing and love from A-1 Pictures, it stands out as one of the best. Even if you’re feeling burnt out on isekai titles, I’d strongly recommend that you give Grimgar a chance.
