When Kyoto University students cosplay during graduation

When Kyoto University students cosplay during graduation
Education without a shadow of a doubt is very daunting. Students, especially at the university levels, work extremely hard to achieve their desired grades. At times you can say the element of fun is taken out of education, and replaced with a fat slab of seriousness. However the happiness and festivities usually come when a student becomes a graduate. Well as fun as graduation may be, there is no place that does graduation in style like Japan. In...

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya review

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya review
“What a bore,” says Princess Kaguya after being told by her adoptive father that she cannot invite any of her friends from their village to a banquet. He also scolds her for spending time in the kitchen with her adoptive mother. It’s a strangely bittersweet moment where we see that the life of a princess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata and co-written by Riko Sakaguchi, The Tale of The... 

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune
Dozens of new anime series premiere every year, and it’s easy to get lost in the sheer volume of them. Plenty of shows get swept away with the flow and don’t get the kind of attention they deserve, ending up as those hidden gems you come across only so often. Good Luck Girl! is one of those gems. Self-centred schoolgirl Ichiko Sakura has everything good going for her: looks, popularity, money, and literally anything else she might ever... 

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review
No matter where I begin, this is going to sound ridiculous. So here goes nothing. Ben-To is an anime that can’t be expanded on much further than the title itself. It’s an anime about bento. It’s an anime about lunch. That’s literally it. But for a premise so stupidly simple, it was a thoroughly entertaining watch. The series starts with our protagonist, Yo Sato, innocently minding his own business as he enters a supermarket with the nonchalant...

Ghost Town artist Alister Dippner recreates Studio Ghibli Scenes
Within the Japanese music scene it’s hard to go a day without ONE OK ROCK being mentioned. With their tour for 2014 finishing in December in London, their opening act was the US rock band Ghost Town. After stumbling across Ghost Town and their music, what really caught my eye was their cover art for their albums by the artist Alister Dippner. From mummys, witches, demons, gore and mystification all mixed with quirky comic book-esque styling,...

One Piece Music Symphony at Cadogan Hall Review

One Piece Music Symphony at Cadogan Hall Review
With a franchise which has amassed over 680 anime episodes, 775 manga chapters and 12 films, One Piece has clearly cemented its place in the anime hall of fame, and shows no signs of slowing down. Whilst it’s taken a while for One Piece content to fully get distributed within the United Kingdom, 2012 saw the release of the Pirate Warriors video game franchise, and in 2013 we began receiving licensed boxsets. However, something special came to... 

Blood Lad review

Blood Lad review
In the form of a comedy from the underworld, Blood Lad was a well written concoction made up of all the ingredients needed to create an enjoyable seinen anime. With themes of supernatural action throughout, Blood Lad is another great example of how anime can turn the stereotypes of ‘scary’ demons and underworld creatures on their heads. Just like how Black Butler made demons sexy and Death Note made Shinigami lovable, Blood Lad made the creatures...
