Welcome to the Ballroom: Part 2 Review
This second part of Welcome to the Ballroom gives a satisfying conclusion to this arc of Tatara’s story, and despite some faults with its pacing and brand of humour, delivers an exciting showcase of the spectacle of competitive ballroom dancing.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Volume 1 Review

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Volume 1 Review
The first volume of The Misfit of Demon King Academy is very much an introduction setting up the characters and the world around them. There’s nothing particularly special or gripping about it so far, but the class divide between the demons gives it something to differentiate it from other similar works and could make an interesting central plot line in the long run.

Fire Force Season 1 Part 1 Review

Fire Force Season 1 Part 1 Review
Fire Force is a pretty decent shonen action show that has some really great moments when it touches upon the danger and heroics of being a firefighter. However, it is spoiled by the overuse of foreshadowing and unnecessary fanservice.

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 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.
