Review: "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" (UK Edition): Where Is Your Moe Now?

by Grant Whiteon September 10, 2012
The common visual style of Japanese animation and comics is considered to have begun with the influx of the American versions of these two categories following the Second World War.

Review: "Fairy Tail Part 3 (UK Edition)": I Believe Slightly Less In Magic

by Grant Whiteon September 3, 2012
The last volume of Fairy Tail ended pretty tensely, with the guild hall in ruins, the guild’s master possibly on his death bed, and the members themselves locked in a battle with a giant, magically powered doomsday robot controlled by their arch rival.

by Grant Whiteon August 23, 2012

Definitely more Elder Scrolls than World of Warcraft. Though maybe if […]
