Bleach Series 14 Part 1 review (Episodes 292-303)

Bleach Series 14 Part 1 review (Episodes 292-303)
  It seems hard to believe that it was almost seven years ago (Monday 5th November 2007 to be exact) that we first got a glimpse of an orange haired young man battling Hollows on our screens. Nearly seven years on and courtesy of this release from Manga Entertainment, we are now celebrating a milestone – the passing of the 300th episode of the series, with perhaps the most important release of the series to date. This set starts what appears... 

Interview with Himezawa

Interview with Himezawa
“I made friends in Germany who introduced me to cosplay,” says Himezawa on how she got into cosplay. “It all developed within a few years.” Describing herself as a cosplayer, model, dancer, actress and author, Himezawa does a little bit of everything. She started cosplaying in 2009 and soon took part in the German Cosplay Championship in 2011. She then took part in the European Cosplay Gathering in 2013. She has been featured in NEO Magazine,... 

Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review

Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review
It is one of the most anticipated anime releases of the last few years, where the mere mention of its name can cause a room full of people to stand up, scream and go crazy. I am of course referring to Attack on Titan and thanks to Manga Entertainment, UK fans can now get their hands on it. The synopsis tells us that several hundred years ago humanity was all but exterminated by a race of giant creatures called Titans. The surviving members of the...

New Parasyte anime assigned opening song by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Fans of Japanese gore, horror and anime would have heard the news about the much loved manga series “Kiseiju” (aka: Parasyte) getting its own anime, and with it means a whole array of amazing music from much loved Japanese musicians. One of the first to be announced has been the band Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas with their upcoming release “Let Me Hear” being picked up for the opening of the new series. The band revealed... 

Karneval complete series review

Karneval complete series review
The best way to describe Karneval in one phrase would be: The could-have-been masterpiece that completely lost its way. And it’s a damn shame that it went so wrong. Karneval opens with a chance meeting, perhaps some kind of fate, between rogue pickpocket/cat burglar Gareki and chained hostage, Nai. The two stick together in order to escape the explosive and undeniably creepy setting of the first episode and of course, end up staying together for... 

Psycho-Pass complete series review

Psycho-Pass complete series review
In a highly advanced Japan where monitoring criminal activity has become somewhat an obsession, Psycho-Pass displays a fast paced, exciting and often twisted story of cat and dog chasing like no other. In this heavily controlled world, the citizens of Japan are labelled and judged by the Sibyl System based on the colour of their ‘hue’ and ‘Crime Coefficient’. The ‘hue’ is used to determine the mental state of an individual. When compared... 

Robotics;Notes part 1 review

Robotics;Notes part 1 review
I have to begin by getting my main opinion out the way first; the highly anticipated Steins;Gate successor, Robotics;Notes… was a letdown. The opening of the story was nothing short of mediocre. It had me worrying for the first few episodes that I really was in for just another high school ‘save our beloved club!’ anime. And although the plot took a few unexpected paths towards different and admittedly, very unique ideas, it just wasn’t executed... 

Hunter x Hunter 2011 meets the end of production

Hunter x Hunter 2011 meets the end of production
The news has been coming closer and closer until now it’s completely inevitable. The production of the popular anime title Hunter x Hunter is coming to an end very shortly. The series began airing in 2011 following the conclusion of the 1999 adaptation that ended its run with 62 episodes and has continued swiftly throughout the past few years. However, as each episode animates roughly 2-3 chapters of Yoshihiro Togashi’s original manga...
