Lu Over the Wall is a fantastic, family-friendly, magical adventure that will capture your heart.

Otome Mania!! Volume 1 Review
While Otome Mania!! might not be a particularly realistic look at the games industry, it’s still an interesting story with a fun cast of characters. If you’re looking for a shojo series set within the world of otome game development, then this book will be perfect for you.

Anime Supremacy! Review
Anime Supremacy! is well written, informative and charming - this is one of the best industry-focused novels to leave Japan in recent years. Without a doubt if you’re someone who cares about the workings of the anime industry then this book belongs in your collection.

Nisemonogatari Parts 1-2 Review
Ultimately the existence of Nisemonogatari in English translation is bittersweet. The arc works well as an end to everything that has come so far but what should have been a high point for the series is brought down by a change in translator.

Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Volume 1 Review

Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Volume 1 Review
Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight seems like a promising shojo tale at first, but as I delved further into it I found it didn't quite live up to the expectations I had for it. The series wants to be a Cinderella story but unfortunately the cringeworthy comedy and huge age gap between lead characters leave a lot to be desired.

The Boy and the Beast Review
The Boy and the Beast is a perfect film to show the whole family and while it hasn’t hit the level of Wolf Children, there is still some real charm to be found here. Not flawless but still well worth your time.

The Anime UK News Team Reviews Netflix’s Death Note
If your favourite part of the original story is the L vs. Light mind battles and the creative ways they try to ‘one up’ each other, then you’ll most likely hate this version. If, however, you enjoyed more of the world building, seeing how the Death Note could be used in creative ways and don’t mind encountering fresh (if controversial) takes on the characters, this film could satisfy your next popcorn movie Netflix night binge.
