K: Missing Kings Review
K: Missing Kings looks gorgeous but is not the best place for newcomers to the K-Project to start. So - is it a satisfying watch for fans of the original series?

5 Centimeters Per Second Review
5 Centimeters per Second certainly has its issues, and the story hasn’t necessarily aged that well compared to Shinkai’s later works, but existing fans of the film will no doubt get a lot of joy from watching the film on Blu-ray.

Tokyo Godfathers Review
Tokyo Godfathers captures the true spirit of Christmas by presenting a tale of three homeless folk finding hope and redemption amidst a madcap adventure, yet retains the darker themes that director Satoshi Kon is known for, allowing this to appeal to both fans and newcomers to his work.

Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution 1 Review
Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Film 1 has a lot going for it with us finally getting the prologue to it all: the events of "The Summer of Love". And while this segment is done very well, the rest of the film, with its lack of coherent storytelling hurts what could have been something special. It has such a magical soundtrack that tells the story better than what you see, and leaves you wishing that perhaps they could have made the prologue the entire film, or at least an OVA, and left the content from the TV series alone.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower Review
If you love Ghibli, desire more of it, or are simply willing to look past this movie's Ghibli-related beginnings, then you’ll find a charming, magical and fun family movie with beautiful animation from a studio that clearly wants to make more delightful movies in the future.

Pokemon Movie 14-16 Collection: Black & White Review
Overall Pokémon Black & White Movie Collection is a mixed bag. Older Pokémon fans like me will be left wanting for much better content and days gone by when Pokémon movies were actively good, but the younger/newer audience are more likely to get a kick out of Ash’s latest adventures.

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review
Overall this live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is an enjoyable watch. It doesn’t necessarily have the same pull as the original manga or its anime adaption but for existing fans it’s interesting to see the story adapted in a different way.

Fireworks Cinema Screening Review
Fireworks is a visually stunning film with an interesting twist on the ‘Groundhog Day’ concept without going too deeply into it. A fun movie that makes another worthy addition to the UK’s most fruitful year of anime cinema releases so far.
