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 Final Frontier: Voice Actor and Sci-Fi Superfan Vic Mignogna at MCM London Comic Con
A veteran of MCM Comic Cons, the lovable Vic Mignogna was able to come back this weekend to say hi to the UK with another panel. The show opened up with a video from one of Vic’s live concerts, where he plays an assortment of anime songs and popular tracks; then he came on stage, and promptly walked off as he decided standing up on the stage and talking down at the audience was a bit too impersonal. Walking through the starry-eyed rows of the...
