Flip Flappers Complete Collection Review
Despite its potential, Flip Flappers is a hard series to recommend. If you’re an avid Magical Girl fan and want something a bit different, this series might possibly fill the void, but it will only be fondly remembered by a small core audience in years to come.

Garrison Girl Review
Garrison Girl is yet another entry in this huge franchise that deserves to be in any fan’s collection. Garrison Girl is everything I find fascinating about Attack on Titan in one gripping instalment.

Hitomi Takano continues to weave a compelling but disturbing narrative about an older woman's friendship with a boy in the second volume of the ongoing series My Boy.

Hanamonogatari Review
Hanamonogatari was a huge disappointment coming off the back of some incredible stories in this franchise. Kanbaru fans will likely get a lot more out of this book than I did, but otherwise there isn't a great deal to like here.

Grand Blue Dreaming Volume 1 Review
Despite some reservations about where the plot is going and any romantic pursuits it has in mind, I find myself thinking fondly of Grand Blue Dreaming. With its anime now airing, this is a good a time as any to jump on board this wacky comedy!

Pokemon Movie 14-16 Collection: Black & White Review
Overall Pokémon Black & White Movie Collection is a mixed bag. Older Pokémon fans like me will be left wanting for much better content and days gone by when Pokémon movies were actively good, but the younger/newer audience are more likely to get a kick out of Ash’s latest adventures.

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review
Overall this live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is an enjoyable watch. It doesn’t necessarily have the same pull as the original manga or its anime adaption but for existing fans it’s interesting to see the story adapted in a different way.

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust Review
It’s a shame that this release lacks the Japanese track, and the Blu-ray conversion is far from perfect, but if you’ve been dying to update your old DVD copy, or have never acquainted yourself with Vampire Hunter D, there’s never been a better time.

Hello!! Kinmoza! Season 2 Review
Not a whole lot has changed in Hello!! Kinmoza!, but then again, not a lot had to, remaining as hilarious, fun and wholesome as the initial series was, introducing a new character to keep things fresh whilst maintaining everything that made the original so endearing to begin with.
