Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light Review

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light Review
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light is bound to appeal to fans of the long-running series. But is there enough here to attract or interest the casual viewer? And does this, the first Yu-Gi-Oh! film, amount to anything more than an extended series episode?

Dragon Ball Z Kai – The Final Chapters: Part 1 Review
After a couple of years break, Dragon Ball Z Kai returns to UK shores to present the final DBZ arc in cut down form: the Buu Arc. That being said if you’re expecting the same sort of release at the other three distinct arcs in the series then you’ll be in for a shock, and not a particularly pleasant one…

Tokyo Godfathers Review
Tokyo Godfathers captures the true spirit of Christmas by presenting a tale of three homeless folk finding hope and redemption amidst a madcap adventure, yet retains the darker themes that director Satoshi Kon is known for, allowing this to appeal to both fans and newcomers to his work.

Yuri!!! on Ice Review
Yuri!!! on Ice is that rare thing: a genuinely feelgood watch. It's entertaining, alternately heart-warming and heart-breaking, and delivers a dazzling array of figure skating routines.

It may not be a perfect adaption of the manga source material, but it is certainly a good first step into this grim future world.

Sound! Euphonium Review

Sound! Euphonium Review
Even amongst Kyoto Animation's prestigious back catalogue, Sound! Euphonium carves out a place amongst the very best, with a subtle blend of Slice of Life and Drama, and understated yet well developed characters, topped off with truly breathtaking animation and music.

RWBY Volume 5 Review

RWBY Volume 5 Review
RWBY Volume 5 juggles a lot of elements that ultimately don’t always pan out, making this one of the weakest seasons so far. Hopefully it's merely a blip on the radar and not a sign of things to come.

RWBY Volume 4 Review
RWBY Volume 4 may not be as explosive and dark as Volume 3 but it’s a great follow-up that properly sets up the pieces for the next chapter of the story, with good emotional arcs and fun fight sequences.

Digimon Tamers Review
This more grounded take on the Digimon formula proves to be the most successful to date, with a surprising amount of depth that makes it immensely enjoyable as an adult, whilst still providing all the fun, action and adventure that appeals to kids.
