Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Volume 1 Review
Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight seems like a promising shojo tale at first, but as I delved further into it I found it didn't quite live up to the expectations I had for it. The series wants to be a Cinderella story but unfortunately the cringeworthy comedy and huge age gap between lead characters leave a lot to be desired.

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.

Dragon Ball Super – Volume 1 Review
Dragon Ball Super's manga version arrives in the UK with, appropriately, Volume 1! It covers the first three arcs of the anime, though the first two are extremely brief (to say the least in Resurrection F's case!), all with Toriyama's trademark art style perfectly presented by his personally selected understudy Toyotarou. Let's take a closer look at both the story and how it does and doesn't differ from the anime...
