The Mad Fox Blu-ray Review
The Mad Fox is a visual treat and cinematically intriguing. Director Tomu Uchida crafts a lavish and engaging narrative which is finally available in the West and would make a worthwhile addition to the collections of fans of Japanese cinema.

Tokyo Ghoul: re Volume 15 is straightforward yet engaging in its story as Kaneki’s friends desperately fight to save him from the Dragon, confronting their comrades along the way. The subsequent events and reunions are also emotionally satisfying.

Tokyo Ghoul: re Part 1 Review
Anime Review

Tokyo Ghoul: re Part 1 Review

Tokyo Ghoul: re Part 1 Review
Tokyo Ghoul: re Part 1 is a solid anime series that adequately adapts its source material but often lacks depth with its expansive cast and sacrifices story elements to fit a 12 episode run. It is arguably the most faithful adaptation the series has seen but at the loss of more stylistic flair, character development and world building.
