The Quintessential Quintuplets Volume 1 Review
Overall, The Quintessential Quintuplets is an okay entry in the romcom genre. It’s perhaps outshone by VIZ Media’s recent debut of We Never Learn but, nevertheless, if you like this genre I think The Quintessential Quintuplets is worth checking out at some point - even if it’s not right now.

Dragon Half Omnibus Volume 1 Review
Dragon Half was an enjoyable read, despite me having no real incentive to continue reading it beyond this release. While this style of comedy isn’t for me, I think those who like classic comedy manga will really enjoy Seven Seas’ release.

Katanagatari Volume 1 Review
Although Katanagatari doesn’t quite hit the heights of NISIOISIN’s Monogatari franchise, I’m sure fans of his work will still find a lot to like here as this first volume proves an enjoyable read. In fact this series is almost worth checking out just for the incredible effort that has gone into the translation.

Bloom Into You Volume 1-2 Review
Bloom Into You is a thoughtful look at both what love is and how it can differ from person to person. Even if you’re not usually a fan of yuri series, I’d highly recommend checking this one out given how strong the story and its characters are. Regardless of your feelings on love, I’m sure you’ll find something to relate to.

Onimonogatari Review
Overall, Onimonogatari places itself among my favourite entries in the Monogatari series for giving us another story with Shinobu and Araragi. You can rest assured that everything you know and love about Monogatari is still present and accounted for.

Granblue Fantasy Part 1 Review
Overall Granblue Fantasy is off to a good start. Admittedly the show has a few faults, and these are liable to drive some viewers away, but I believe that the impressive action scenes can overcome the problems. Existing fans of Granblue Fantasy, as well as fans of the fantasy genre as a whole, will no doubt find a lot to like here.

Fairy Tale Battle Royale Volume 1 Review
If you’re not interested in a horrifying take on classic fairy tales then there is little of interest to set this series apart from the crowded genre. However, fairy tale fans looking for something different are sure to have a great time with this dark take on some of their favourite stories!

APOSIMZ Volume 1 Review
How you get on with APOSIMZ will depend on how willing you are to committing to reading more than a single volume. This first volume offers little in the way of substantial world building or characters, so all the series really has going for it is Tsutomu Nihei's name.

Amanchu! Review
Amanchu! offers a fulfilling slice of life story with great comedy and character development. Even if you’re not interested in the premise of diving, you’re likely to stick around for the cast and their heartwarming tales of high school life.
