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.

Saint Young Men Volume 1 Review
Saint Young Men delivers on its premise thanks to its endearing portrayal of two key religious figures trying to live their everyday lives in modern Japan. Numerous references to Christianity and Buddhism also add to the enjoyment.

Okko’s Inn Review

Okko’s Inn Review
Okko’s Inn is an entertaining and often poignant film that deals with its themes maturely but also with a warmth that makes it accessible for a younger audience but deep enough for older viewers to appreciate too. Director Kitarô Kôsaka shows some promise and I look forward to their future works.

Overlord III Review

Overlord III Review
Overlord III is stronger than the previous season in its approach to exploring its world and showcasing the advancements in Ainz's kingdom-building. Where its flaws lie are in some wonky CGI and a lack of tension in places due to Ainz's level of control.
