Tsukimonogatari Review
The final season of Monogatari is off to an intriguing start. Tsukimonogatari may be but a stepping stone on the road to a much bigger story, but it’s changing the franchise in fundamental ways. NISIOISIN continues to keep his beloved series alive with new and compelling developments.

5 Centimeters per Second – One More Side Review
5 Centimeters per Second - One More Side is a must-read for fans of the film. Although it can’t fix the many flaws 5 Centimeters per Second has, especially with its characters, it’s still a surprisingly engrossing read. The fresh perspective on the tale brings it to life in a whole new way.
