Fate/Apocrypha – Part 2 Review

Fate/Apocrypha – Part 2 Review
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 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

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.

Welcome to the Ballroom: Part 1 Review

Welcome to the Ballroom: Part 1 Review
Welcome to the Ballroom applies the sports anime formula to competitive ballroom dancing with great success, filling the screen with beautiful dance work and character drama. Despite Anime Limited's release being very bare-bones, this is show anyone can have a lot of fun with.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly Review

Dragon Ball Super: Broly Review
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a thrilling action film, pitting Goku and Vegata against the hulking Broly with some great animation work and a solid backstory that eases in newcomers to the franchise. For all its outrageous action that fans will love, those coming into this fresh will find the elongated fight scenes go on for far too long, perhaps resulting in them switching off in its final moments.

Girls’ Last Tour Review

Girls’ Last Tour Review
Girls’ Last Tour is a very relaxing survival story that generates a lot of appeal from its comfy styling and deceptively cute presentation. Its slow pace and slice-of-life sensibilities may seem boring to some, but if you look past that, the series shows an engaging deeper narrative with a strong anti-war message.

Seven Mortal Sins Review

Seven Mortal Sins Review
A low budget affair, Seven Mortal Sins has plenty of fanservice that will please ecchi fans; however, there are plenty of other shows that better serve the series’ action and goofy comedy without the sex.

Bloom Into You Volume 3 Review

Bloom Into You Volume 3 Review
Bloom Into You continues to be a highly entertaining and refreshing yuri manga with a more grounded and realistic take on relationships in general, while showing that the genre can take same-sex relationships seriously when it tries.
