"Hetalia World Series": Trans-Atlantic Alliance

Hetalia returns for a third round of its unique look at history, trading in the ‘Axis Powers’ title for ‘World Series’. It’s an apt choice, as much of this set focuses on history before World War II. The primary focus is on Europe and the constant changing of borders and unions it has seen. Whilst […]

"Hetalia Axis Powers: Paint It, White! (UK Edition)": Doesn't Whitewash

Given Hetalia’s rapid-fire format, the question of making it into a movie is, of course, ‘How?’ The answer, it would seem, is to cast the view beyond our blue sphere and bring in space aliens. A race of featureless white aliens invades Earth, slowly assimilating humans and even the very landscape. The central Hetalia cast […]

"Bleach Movies 1, 2, and 3" Blu-Rays (UK Editions): Don't Fear The Reaper

I’ve never really been able to get into Bleach, though not for a lack of trying. Around the point I was getting tired of Naruto, a likeminded friend tried to get me into Bleach, which he was quite enjoying. I sampled the earlier parts of the story, but from that and a look around online […]

"Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society (UK Edition)": A Solid Gas

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex has been on my list of series to see for a while now. I’d watched the first theatrical movie and generally enjoyed it but found it a bit rushed, so the idea of a full TV show to better explore these characters and concepts certainly piqued my interest. […]

"Fairy Tail Part 2 (UK Edition)": Jets vs Sharks

Natsu and his friends continue to fight against the ‘Cold Emperor’ and stop his attempts to revive the monster Deliora. The conclusion of this story takes up the entirety of the first disc in the set, and whilst that might sound long, really Fairy Tail continues to show its excellent form on pacing. As with […]

Toonzone Attends the World Premiere Preview of Nickelodeon's TMNT at MCM Expo London

Attendees were ushered into the largest of MCM’s screening rooms to find some gifts waiting for them- every chair had a coloured bandana (in a choice of the 4 iconic Turtles colours), a TMNT branded bottle of drinking water and a copy of issue #4 of IDW’s TMNT comic book. Cameras prowled the vast room, […]

"Gundam SEED HD Remaster Limited Edition Blu-ray Box 1": Cropped SEED

Roughly a decade ago I became a Gundam fan thanks to the British television broadcast of Gundam Wing. It was a very odd situation. Not only was I coming into a then-already 20-year-old franchise produced by a country speaking a completely different language, but even the fledgling wave of new American fans were a good […]

"Kiddy Grade Complete Series (UK Edition)": Makes The Grade

Kiddy Grade is a 24-episode sci-fi series. In the future mankind has expanded to the stars and colonised hundreds of worlds via terraforming. Of course, a new frontier brings with it a new wave of crime, which has begotten GOTT, a government agency established to directly oversee the legalisation of commercial business. Whilst the public […]

"Mardock Scramble: The First Compression (UK Edition)": When You Stare Into The Abyss, The Abyss Stares Back Into You.

Rune-Balot is a 15-year-old prostitute who has the misfortune of becoming attached to Shell, a professional gambler who systematically kills ideal women as part of a process designed to turn them into diamonds. Balot is barely saved from this fate by a pair of legal agents, Dr. Easter, and his creation, Oeufcoque, a genetically engineered […]
