Ring: 20th Anniversary Screening Review
Luckily, the outdated technology of VCRs and square TVs are not the most horrific scare of this movie; Ring is the epitome of slow-burn horror with its 20th anniversary screening being a delightful reminder of why it was such a big hit back then.

Wish Omnibus Review
Wish isn’t a series that’s likely to become your new favourite CLAMP manga but it’s a delightfully simple, fun, beautifully drawn series that easily pulls you into its story with likeable characters and genuine relationship chemistry.

Dragon Ball Super – Part 6 Review
The Future Trunks arc comes to a swift close in Dragon Ball Super’s sixth part, and after it comes what can only be described as filler, even if it isn’t technically filling in time for any other reason than old habits, I guess. Is it good filler though? Well…

Record of Grancrest War Volume 1 Review
Volume 1 of Record of Grancrest War offers a satisfying entrance into a compelling story about war and demons. Newcomers to the series will probably prefer this to the anime adaption and returning fans of the franchise should find plenty to like here.

Naruto Shippuden – Box Set 35 Review
Naruto Shippuden’s 35th two-disc release is, to the surprise of literally no-one, almost entirely filler. Unlike the previous box set though, the single canon episode on this set is extremely significant. Can you bear thirteen filler episodes for the sake of one good one?

The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen Volume 1 Review

The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen Volume 1 Review
This prequel to the horror indie game is a gruesomely delightful book with a simple but effective story, dark imagery and strong lead character. The Witch’s House: The Diary of Ellen is best enjoyed when accompanied by knowledge of the game, however, so if you’ve yet to dive into it, there’s no time like the present.

Dragon Ball Super’s fourth manga volume continues to tell the same basic story as the anime of the same name, but once again takes some side steps and adds a few new details. With Future Trunks’ doomed future on the line, let’s see how the manga continues to handle this apocalypse within an apocalypse…

Dive!! Volume 1 Review
Overall, Dive!!’s first volume proves to be an enjoyable read. It’s somewhat difficult to recommend to fans of the sports genre with its reluctance to talk about diving in any detail, but those readers looking for a slice of life about diving will fare better.
