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.

Otome Mania!! Volume 1 Review
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 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.

Dragon Ball Super – Volume 1 Review
Dragon Ball Super's manga version arrives in the UK with, appropriately, Volume 1! It covers the first three arcs of the anime, though the first two are extremely brief (to say the least in Resurrection F's case!), all with Toriyama's trademark art style perfectly presented by his personally selected understudy Toyotarou. Let's take a closer look at both the story and how it does and doesn't differ from the anime...
