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.

Fireworks Review

Fireworks Review
Fireworks is an enjoyable but flawed film that tries to pair a slice of science fiction with a teenage romantic drama, but ends up getting bogged down with its time-altering plot device.

Love and Lies Review

Love and Lies Review
Love and Lies could have provided an interesting social commentary with its core concept of government arranged marriage, but instead presents us with a haremesque romantic drama with strange execution that pulls its best punches when it’s not actually focusing on the romance.

Tokyo Godfathers Review

Tokyo Godfathers Review
Tokyo Godfathers captures the true spirit of Christmas by presenting a tale of three homeless folk finding hope and redemption amidst a madcap adventure, yet retains the darker themes that director Satoshi Kon is known for, allowing this to appeal to both fans and newcomers to his work.
