Promare Theatrical Review
Promare is a film not to be missed. There is nothing quite like it out there, certainly nothing which is so much fun for the entire runtime. Hiroyuki Imaishi and Kazuki Nakashima have once again created something truly unforgettable which will be a joy to watch for many years to come.

Goblin Slayer Season 1 Review

Goblin Slayer Season 1 Review
Overall, Goblin Slayer offers a dark fantasy series with plenty of blood and guts flying around. If that’s your cup of tea then you’ll certainly enjoy this one, but failing that, there isn’t a great deal of substance here.

My Hero Academia: School Briefs Volume 3 Review
Overall the third volume of My Hero Academia: School Briefs is a must-have for fans of the franchise. With such a large variety of stories, there is something for everyone this time around. The bonus chapter based on the fantasy ending is worth buying the book for all on its own!

Beastars Volume 1 Review
Overall, the first volume of Beastars is not going to be enough for you to decide if you like the series or not. There are certainly some interesting concepts in play and it’s a unique story, but I’m not convinced that’s quite enough for every reader.

Dragon Ball Super – Part 8 Review
Dragon Ball used to have a reputation of it “just being people fighting”, which, while it was often close to that (particularly in the Z era) was never just people fighting… until now! Let’s have a look at the start of an 80-man Battle Royal, shall we?

O Maidens in your Savage Season Volume 4 Review
Overall this volume of O Maidens in your Savage Seasons spends most of its time setting up for the following release, which is by no means a bad thing. Fans of Sonezaki and Kazusa will enjoy Volume 4, but those looking for focus on the other girls might be disappointed.
