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.

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

Perfect Blue Review

Perfect Blue Review
Perfect Blue is an effective psychological thriller that brilliantly plays with expectations and directly addresses uncomfortable, heavy themes for a mind-trip of a movie. Whilst the ending may not as stellar as the work leading up to it, this is definitely a film that any anime fan should treat themselves to this Halloween.

In This Corner of the World Review
In This Corner of the World is a heart-felt journey that may not be as lauded compared to other animated war films or big anime film releases of this year, but is still a film worthy of being discovered and added to your collection.

The Boy and the Beast Review
The Boy and the Beast is a perfect film to show the whole family and while it hasn’t hit the level of Wolf Children, there is still some real charm to be found here. Not flawless but still well worth your time.
