My Hero Academia – Two Heroes Review
My Hero Academia does Die Hard as it makes its theatrical debut with “Two Heroes”, a story that also explores the past of one of the series’ lead characters: All Might. Does this blend of genres work while living up to the great TV series? In a word: Yes!

Fireworks Review

Fireworks Review
Fireworks is an enjoyable but flawed film that tries to pair a slice of science fiction with a teenage romantic drama, but ends up getting bogged down with its time-altering plot device.

Junjo Romantica: Season 2 Review
Junjo Romantica Season 2 is a distinct improvement on Season 1 in terms of watchable drama, lightened with welcome touches of humour that help the viewer to overlook the less than stellar animation.

Dementia 21 Review
Dementia 21 is a surreal mixture of horror and satire. While the quality may vary between its collection of stories, fans of dark humour and mind-bending art should definitely check it out.

Bloom Into You Volume 1-2 Review
Bloom Into You is a thoughtful look at both what love is and how it can differ from person to person. Even if you’re not usually a fan of yuri series, I’d highly recommend checking this one out given how strong the story and its characters are. Regardless of your feelings on love, I’m sure you’ll find something to relate to.

Onimonogatari Review
Overall, Onimonogatari places itself among my favourite entries in the Monogatari series for giving us another story with Shinobu and Araragi. You can rest assured that everything you know and love about Monogatari is still present and accounted for.

Naruto Shippuden Box Set 34 Review
Does anyone remember that meme where people added “-ception” to things within things in reference to the film Inception? Well, it’s a bit out of date now, but: welcome to Fillerception, where the majority of this Box Set is a filler story within a filler story. Hooray?

Digimon Frontier Review
With the least memorable DigiDestined to date, seemingly endless and monotonous repetition and not even the draw of nostalgia to compensate, it's hard to recommend Digimon Frontier to anyone but the most dedicated of fans

No Game No Life Zero Review
After a couple of years break the popular No Game No Life series gets a second anime, this time in the form of a prequel film. Ignoring disappointment that they’re not continuing forward and instead looking back, how does No Game No Life Zero stand on its own?
