Naruto Shippuden Box Set 31 Review
After two releases containing nearly nothing but adaptations of the manga, Naruto Shippuden Box Set 31 falls into a filler-fest, to the sad surprise of nobody. But is the filler here any good, or is it so bad it’s worth losing the few “canon” episodes contained in this set by skipping it? Let’s find out!

Dragon Ball Z – Movie Collection Five Review
The Legendary Super Saiyan known as Broly is, undoubtedly, the most Marmite character in the Dragon Ball franchise. The phrase “you either love him or hate him” may as well be made for him, as seemingly most fans land on one side or the other, but does the truth lie somewhere in the middle? Let’s take a look at Manga Entertainment’s 5th movie collection, bringing together all three of Broly’s movies, and see, shall we?

Orange: Future Review
Orange: Future proves itself to be a worthy continuation of the original series. Filled with the same attention to detail and sensitive approach to difficult topics, this volume is definitely worth your time if you’re a fan of Orange.

Grimgar: Ashes & Illusions Collector’s Edition Review
Overall Grimgar: Ashes &Illusions might seem like just another entry in an overcrowded genre but thanks to some quality writing and love from A-1 Pictures, it stands out as one of the best. Even if you’re feeling burnt out on isekai titles, I’d strongly recommend that you give Grimgar a chance.

Dragon Ball Super Season One – Part 2 Review
Dragon Ball Super’s second TV release features the final episode of the Battle of Gods arc before quickly shifting over to a retelling of the Resurrection F film… so, the series still doesn’t offer much new to fans who already own the Blu-rays of the latest DBZ films, but there are some differences between the two versions of Frieza’s return…

Dragon Ball Super – Volume 2 Review
Just in case you thought there wouldn’t be enough Dragon Ball coverage here at Anime UK News, we have a slightly belated look at the second volume of the Dragon Ball Super manga, released here in the UK on the 28th of December (and therefore taking a long time to reach my house through holiday post…) Two universes collide in a tournament with… actually no real stakes, this time…

Dragon Ball Z Movie Collection Four Review
DBZ Movie Collection 4, awkwardly collecting Movies 7 and 9 (leaving 8 to be paired with the other two Broly movies… next month!), is full of good action and loosely defined villains, as well as Androids and … very on-the-nose Space Pirates! Who doesn’t want to watch those?!

Nekomonogatari (Black) Review
Nekomonogatari (Black) rekindled my love for the Monogatari franchise and highlights just how big an impact translation can have on light novels. This latest entry in a much loved series comes highly recommended from me.
