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... 

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... 

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...

Red Dwarf Panel at MCM Manchester Comic Con

Red Dwarf Panel at MCM Manchester Comic Con
In 1987 in the old BBC building on Oxford Road, Manchester, a comedy set in a spaceship was being made, one that would gain a huge cult following over time. A whole 27 years later and the Red Dwarf cast are finally back in the show’s home town. Paying a visit to the MCM Manchester Comic Con were Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), Hattie Hayridge (Holly) and Judy Pascoe (Mechanoid Camille). Before any of them had even opened their... 

Ashens and The Quest For The GameChild: Blu-Ray review

Ashens and The Quest For The GameChild: Blu-Ray review
Since YouTube’s inception in 2005, the platform has since become the leading place for entertainment on the internet. However every dynasty of sorts does have its key contributors, and one of those for YouTube is Ashens who has accumulated over 590,000 subscribers. Ashens is the alter-ego of Stuart Ashen, who is a reviewer of various poor quality products. He uses his animations in some of his videos, and does lend himself to acting. His first... 

Trailer and poster for Dumb and Dumber To

Trailer and poster for Dumb and Dumber To
It’s been 20 years since the original Dumb and Dumber (wow that makes me feel old), but from the look of this new trailer for the sequel, the Farrelly brothers and their stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels haven’t missed a beat… Dumb and Dumber was a special sort of movie. A benchmark in American comedy that started a trend of gross-out movies in the 1990s and onward. Though it could be argued the trend was perpetuated by the Farrelly... 

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell
Shiverton Hall. It would be all too easy to jump to the lazy comparison of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, but that’s like saying all school-based stories are the same. Grange Hill this isn’t. Here, Emerald Fennell delivers her second slice of fearsome storytelling, as Arthur Bannister returns to Shiverton Hall for a second term. It must be challenging these days to even attempt to write a story such as this because of the huge popularity of the Harry...
