Dragon Ball Super – Volume 2 Review
Just in case you thought there wouldn’t be enough Dragon Ball coverage here at Anime UK News, we have a slightly belated look at the second volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga, released here in the UK on the 28th of December (and therefore taking a long time to reach my house through holiday post…) Two universes collide in a tournament with… actually no real stakes, this time…

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Volume 1 Review
The first volume of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc is a delightful success; from the lovely art and the characters to the new story’s beginnings – all of it feels like a genuine continuation that CLAMP wanted and felt creatively compelled to do. If you’re a CLAMP fan, do not hesitate to pick up this volume.

Neo Parasyte f  Review
The best contributions in Neo Parasyte f are strange and compelling, making this unusual collection of short stories well worth reading, especially if you’re a fan of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s original work.

In/Spectre Volume 1 Review
Despite the silly name and lack of fanfare around this title, In/Spectre starts off very well with likable characters, sincere chemistry between the two leads and interesting spin on Japanese folklore.

While Otome Mania!! might not be a particularly realistic look at the games industry, it’s still an interesting story with a fun cast of characters. If you’re looking for a shojo series set within the world of otome game development, then this book will be perfect for you.

Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Volume 1 Review

Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight Volume 1 Review
Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight seems like a promising shojo tale at first, but as I delved further into it I found it didn't quite live up to the expectations I had for it. The series wants to be a Cinderella story but unfortunately the cringeworthy comedy and huge age gap between lead characters leave a lot to be desired.

I Hear the Sunspot Volume 1 Review
I Hear the Sunspot is a very different work from A Silent Voice but just as worthy of your time for its characterization and bitter-sweet depiction of a nascent relationship. And the artwork is gorgeous. Recommended.
