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 Review
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.

Owarimonogatari Part 2 Review
Owarimonogatari Part 2 offers an interesting story set in the middle of the series timeline. If you’re not a Kanbaru fan then you may find yourself lacking in enthusiasm for the first half of the book, but the final payoff makes it worth reading to the end.

Pokémon Adventures Collector’s Edition Volume 1 Review
Pokémon Adventures Collector’s Edition Volume 1 is a worthwhile starting point for newcomers to the series. However, if you already own the series in any other form, then there isn’t much point picking it up. That said, even ten years after its initial English release, Pokémon Adventures is still a fantastic manga that fans of this popular franchise will fall in love with.

86: Eighty-Six Volume 4 Review
86 Volume 4 proves a return to form for the series. With the reintroduction of Lena and a new team with her at the helm, this opens the door for a lot of exciting stories to come. While a large portion of this volume is set-up, the mission the Eighty-Sixth Strike Package embark on is still as gripping as ever.

Cosmo Familia Volume 1 Review
Overall, Cosmo Familia Volume 1 is an entertaining but unpolished introduction to a new magical girl series. The manga spends too much time jumping from one idea to the next without any real rhyme or reason and that will put most readers off.

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Volume 3 brings a conclusion to the series first major arc. With the introduction of a new character and rival for Natsu, we begin moving into the second (equally compelling) storyline. This continues to be a must-read for Fairy Tail fans.
