Koyomimonogatari Part 2 Review

Koyomimonogatari Part 2 Review
Overall, Koyomimonogatari has proven to be an entertaining read. While it’s not the best in the series, the final couple of stories included in Part 2 make up for having to read through two volumes of otherwise unsubstantial tales.

Silver Spoon Volume 10 Manga Review
Volume 10 is a lot of fun, as is expected for Silver Spoon, and maintains the quality in story and characters established by mangaka Hiromu Arakawa so far. We get some character development for Hachiken and Komaba, get to witness the production and sale of sausages and meet a colourful new character in Shingo's Russian wife Alexandra.

Last Round Arthurs Volume 1 Review
Overall, Last Round Arthurs delivers a satisfying fantasy adventure. The legend of King Arthur and Merlin may be quite different with Luna and Rintaro at the helm, but one thing's for sure - it’ll be a crazy ride. Those of you looking for a new sword and sorcery adventure will love what this light novel has to offer.

The Night is Short, Walk on Girl Review
The Night is Short, Walk on Girl’s novel is a real treat for both newcomers and returning fans to the story. The book is different enough from its adaptation to be a worthwhile read, even for those who are already familiar with the plot, and it offers more depth to the female protagonist.

Kizumonogatari Part 3: Reiketsu Review

Eromanga Sensei Part 1 Review
Eromanga Sensei Part 1 offers an entertaining and lovable comedy about family and working in the light novel industry. While some viewers will be put off by a potential sibling romance, I hope they can still look past it to discover the genuinely great anime underneath.

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.

Overall, this volume of O Maidens in your Savage Season brings the series into a comfortable position where it begins to flesh out the story. With the characters learning a lot about themselves and their emotions in this springtime of youth, the manga is still a fantastic read that will keep you eagerly turning the pages.
