Cosplay interview with Ross E Cobbold

Cosplay interview with Ross E Cobbold
“I never, ever, want to have to make a corset,” says Ross E Cobbold as he explains how important it is to push yourself to reach your goals. Having created some incredibly detailed costumes, he also realises his own limits, one of them being that future cosplay projects must not involve a corset. “I do think it’s important to be able to say to yourself, ‘I can achieve this thing,’” says Ross. “It might not be easy, but you can achieve... 

Sound! Euphonium – anime first thoughts

Sound! Euphonium – anime first thoughts
Every season of anime comes with a few rare and original shows. However they can be difficult to find amongst the overwhelming amount of same-same genre’s and retold storylines. Some may disagree with this. I believe there is a greyish area between these two kinds of shows. I like to call it the same-old guilty pleasures. Within this category are idol anime, sparkling shoujo romances and music-based shows. Unfortunately, this season lacks any... 

Gatchaman Crowds Season 1 Blu-ray review

Gatchaman Crowds Season 1 Blu-ray review
For anime fans of a certain age the name Gatchaman brings back fond memories of the 1970s Power Rangers-esque series that ran for 105 episodes in Japan and 85 episodes when it was brought over to the west as Battle of The Planets. Since then, there have been other versions of the show produced, including a live-action adaptation released in Japan in 2013. So far, none of these have managed to attract quite the same level of fandom and excitement...

Plastic Memories – Anime first thoughts

Plastic Memories – Anime first thoughts
Plastic Memories is a series that sounded tear-worthy from the very first description I read. And I was right to assume that. The anime is set in a world where humans live happily alongside very human-like androids named Giftia. Giftia are specifically developed for various ‘owners’ requirements, whether it be for work, companionship or to fill a missing family gap, they mean a great deal to those who own them. The problem is, with a... 

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Anime first thoughts

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Anime first thoughts
IT’S A HAREM, A HAREM. RUN. IT’S A HAREM. No, I’m kidding. I’m being open-minded this season and branching out. I just hope I won’t regret it. I have to be honest, I was put off by the title of this anime. For obvious reasons, I just assumed I’d be delving into a very flat and boring storyline of boy likes girl but other girl likes boy. Oh and that girl…and that one…and so on. BUT I was drawn in by... 

Ore Monogatari!! Anime first thoughts

Ore Monogatari!! Anime first thoughts
Ah, the stereotypical anime love story. Cold and careless boy meets overly ‘kawaii’ pretty girl… Nope, scratch that. Ore Monogatari!! is taking that typical told and retold story and turning it completely on its head. With a gorilla-faced giant of a male protagonist and teeny weeny cutie-pie love interest, Ore Monogatari!! has set up a premise of one of the most charming and utterly adorable love stories that could ever be written. Takeo...
