5 Centimeters per Second – One More Side Review
5 Centimeters per Second - One More Side is a must-read for fans of the film. Although it can’t fix the many flaws 5 Centimeters per Second has, especially with its characters, it’s still a surprisingly engrossing read. The fresh perspective on the tale brings it to life in a whole new way.

Katanagatari Volume 1 Review
Although Katanagatari doesn’t quite hit the heights of NISIOISIN’s Monogatari franchise, I’m sure fans of his work will still find a lot to like here as this first volume proves an enjoyable read. In fact this series is almost worth checking out just for the incredible effort that has gone into the translation.

Overall, Onimonogatari places itself among my favourite entries in the Monogatari series for giving us another story with Shinobu and Araragi. You can rest assured that everything you know and love about Monogatari is still present and accounted for.

Kokoro Connect Volume 2 Review
Overall, I’ve once again found myself enjoying my time with Kokoro Connect. This volume succeeds in making you care about Inaba, a character who hadn’t previously been given the spotlight, while also offering an incredibly compelling read.

Toradora! Volume 2 Review
Toradora! continues to impress with its well written cast of characters and gripping story. New girl Ami is liable to get on your nerves if you’re a Taiga fan but the tale unfolding around her is compelling enough that this hopefully won’t matter.

Otorimonogatari Review
Otorimonogatari is an odd entry in the Monogatari series. Due to the toning down of the comedic aspects and use of a third person perspective, this is a very different Monogatari to the usual.

An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride Volume 1 Review
An Archdemon's Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride offers a heartwarming and outright adorable story. The initial set-up might put people off but the series is determined to make Zagan and Nephy’s relationship pure rather than something born of master and servant. Those of you in the market for a new fantasy romance need look no further than here.

Garrison Girl is yet another entry in this huge franchise that deserves to be in any fan’s collection. Garrison Girl is everything I find fascinating about Attack on Titan in one gripping instalment.
