Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Volume 1 Review
The first volume of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc is a delightful success; from the lovely art and the characters to the new story’s beginnings – all of it feels like a genuine continuation that CLAMP wanted and felt creatively compelled to do. If you’re a CLAMP fan, do not hesitate to pick up this volume.

Neo Parasyte f  Review
The best contributions in Neo Parasyte f are strange and compelling, making this unusual collection of short stories well worth reading, especially if you’re a fan of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s original work.

Escaflowne The Movie Review

Escaflowne The Movie Review
Escaflowne the Movie uses the same characters, mecha and world as the well-loved TV series – but to tell a more direct, fantasy-by-the-numbers story. Redeemed by a wonderful soundtrack and impressive visuals, it still manages to cast a distinctive spell of its own.

I Hear the Sunspot Volume 1 Review
I Hear the Sunspot is a very different work from A Silent Voice but just as worthy of your time for its characterization and bitter-sweet depiction of a nascent relationship. And the artwork is gorgeous. Recommended.
