Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Part 2 Review

Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Part 2 Review
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 cements the entire series as a fantastic action show full of tense and exciting mobile suit battles, and while some areas are an improvement over its first season, such as dialogue and character development, it feels weaker in others, particularly in its plot and pacing.

O Maidens in your Savage Season Volume 5
O Maidens in your Savage Season continues to offer a compelling read. This volume begins to bring an end to some of the cast's stories, which is by no means a bad thing. Will these girls ever find true happiness? We’ll have to keep reading to find out, but this entry suggests a strong possibility at least.

Snow White with the Red Hair Volume 4 Review
The fourth volume of Snow White with the Red Hair does a good job of both moving the story along and fleshing out its main cast. Fans of Mitsuhide will appreciate the flashback chapter, while other readers will be happy to see Shirayuki and Zen growing closer.

A Sister’s All You Need Volume 5 Review
Although this instalment of A Sister’s All You Need barely comes in at 140 pages, a lot happens. While I wouldn’t mind a return to the usual crazy hijinks the light novels are known for in Volume 6, for now I’m happy to have had the spotlight on the series' most undeveloped character.

Soul Eater – The Complete Series Review
Soul Eater is a shonen classic: an exciting action show with a sheer sense of style that covers its entire look and feel, from world to soundtrack to characters. Despite its plot having an anime original ending, it's still thrilling to watch and manages to ties things up in a satisfying way.

The Garden of Sinners Movie Collection Review
Overall, The Garden of Sinners is a mixed bag. The films are interesting but the quality varies a lot and they’re not for everyone. If you’re a particular fan of Ufotable then they’re well worth watching for the animation, but that won’t overcome their shortcomings for everyone.
