Eromanga Sensei Part 2 Review
Overall, Eromanga Sensei provides an entertaining watch right to the end. Although it won’t win over anyone who disliked the first half, it remains a fantastic comedy for those who are on-board. With a likeable cast of characters, insightful glimpses into the light novel industry and catchy opening/ending themes, this is a highly recommended watch!

Okko’s Inn Review
Okko’s Inn is an entertaining and often poignant film that deals with its themes maturely but also with a warmth that makes it accessible for a younger audience but deep enough for older viewers to appreciate too. Director Kitarô Kôsaka shows some promise and I look forward to their future works.

In a moment that feels somewhat bittersweet, given I’ve already reviewed the first Boruto set, the final Naruto Shippuden release is here, but with the main story already finished in the previous release, what is there left to do in these final episodes?

Fate/Apocrypha – Part 1 Review
The first half of Fate/Apocrypha sets itself up as an exciting and tense action series, while also focusing on its deep and satisfying character relationships. With no ties to previous entries in the Fate universe, this also makes it a great place to start for newcomers.

Overlord III Review

Overlord III Review
Overlord III is stronger than the previous season in its approach to exploring its world and showcasing the advancements in Ainz's kingdom-building. Where its flaws lie are in some wonky CGI and a lack of tension in places due to Ainz's level of control.

Dragon Ball Super – Part 7 Review
Dragon Ball Super – Part 7 gets off to an exciting and high-impact start, before settling into a long stretch of what can only be described as filler, despite the series not being based on a manga… Is it still worth a watch though?
