Bakemonogatari: Part One
4/06/2013 Director: Akiyuki Shimbou Publisher: Hanabee   Bakemonogatari can be described as a living book; it grows before your eyes while using patterns and quick cuts to deliver incredibly meaningful stories. It transforms the light novel by Nisio Isin into something tangible and chaotic. I...

Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (Hakuoki Season One)

Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (Hakuoki Season One)
27/05/13   Japan has a rich and interesting history, and some of Japan’s most successful video games, anime, movies and TV series are based on historical events. The story of the Shinsengumi has been retold numerous times, and one of my personal all-time favourite anime, ‘Peacemaker...

Heaven's Lost Property: Season 2

Heaven's Lost Property: Season 2
05/04/2013   I love anime, and I love all kinds of anime. I’ve grown up with it, and have always been able to approach any anime with an open mind. With that being said, there’s something truly polarising about ‘Heaven’s Lost Property’, and it’s absurd humour. On one hand, it delivers...

Adventure Time Season 1 Review

Adventure Time Season 1 Review
25/12/2012 Adventure Time  Season 1 Adventure Time (AT) is one of the greatest animated shows produced in the past decade and if you're not watching it yet, you're missing out. The show in its simplest form is the adventures of Jake the Dog and Finn the Human as they travel the world of...

My Little Pony: Best Friends Forever Review

My Little Pony: Best Friends Forever Review
11/12/2012 My Little Pony Best Friends Forever   Before you ultimately dismiss this review as childhood idiocy for adults who haven't got their nostalgia together or kids who just like fast-moving brightly coloured things, I have to tell you that My Little Pony (MLP) is one of the...

American Horror Story: Season 1 Review

American Horror Story: Season 1 Review
10/11/2012 American Horror Story Season 1 Horror TV shows may never usually receive the same overwhelming response or studio treatment as others, but recently the genre has begun to show its true colours with some high-end productions that shy away from the standard fare of entertainment and...
