Twin Star Exorcists Part 3 Review
The third part of Twin Star Exorcists remains a mixed bag, with the first half of the set being particularly underwhelming; however the second half is a marked improvement with more character development, a greater focus on the action and a jump up in the threat level of the villains.

SSSS.Gridman: The Complete Series Review

SSSS.Gridman: The Complete Series Review
SSSS.Gridman combines Studio Trigger’s trademark style and eccentricity with the absurdness and creativity of the tokusatsu genre. It remains faithful to the original 1990s TV series with the kaiju and the action sequences, while telling an engaging and heartfelt story with a strong cast of characters.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Part 2 Review
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 cements the entire series as a fantastic action show full of tense and exciting mobile suit battles, and while some areas are an improvement over its first season, such as dialogue and character development, it feels weaker in others, particularly in its plot and pacing.

Soul Eater – The Complete Series Review
Soul Eater is a shonen classic: an exciting action show with a sheer sense of style that covers its entire look and feel, from world to soundtrack to characters. Despite its plot having an anime original ending, it's still thrilling to watch and manages to ties things up in a satisfying way.

Fate/Apocrypha’s second half does well to bring its story to a conclusion, pitching in with some fantastic fight sequences and art direction, all the while showing some good character development along the way.

Fate/Apocrypha – Part 1 Review
The first half of Fate/Apocrypha sets itself up as an exciting and tense action series, while also focusing on its deep and satisfying character relationships. With no ties to previous entries in the Fate universe, this also makes it a great place to start for newcomers.

Kokkoku: Moment by Moment Review
Kokkoku: Moment by Moment throws in a lot of interesting ideas around the consequences of stopping time, life and death amidst a cat-and-mouse game plot that sees one woman try to rescue her family from a crazed religious cult. However, it fails to execute on its potential as it struggles with poor pacing, gaping plot holes, and finding an ending for its characters.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card – Part 2 Review
The second part of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card combines the core elements of the franchise with a darker and more mysterious tone that gives it its own unique feel. It's truly a deserving successor to a much-loved legacy and I can’t wait to see where CLAMP takes it next.
