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.

One Piece Movie Collection 1 Review

One Piece Movie Collection 1 Review
Manga and anime have been rapidly gaining popularity in the west with lead titles such as Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. The franchises themselves fall under the Shonen demographic, and at one point were the highest selling manga in Japan. That isn’t necessarily the case anymore, however one strange occurrence is that One Piece had barely been licensed in the United Kingdom, with the box sets only becoming available recently. To overcome that Manga...

Digimon 15 Year Anniversary Digivice Toys Revealed
The 1990s brought upon us two Japanese juggernauts; Digimon and Pokémon. It was like Star Wars vs. Star Trek; you were either one or the other.

The Digimon Agumon and Gabumon, as well as all of their evolutions...
