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

by Grant Whiteon May 14, 2012
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

by Grant Whiteon May 7, 2012
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 […]

by Grant Whiteon May 3, 2012
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.

"Naruto Shippuden The Movie 2: Bonds (UK Edition)": That's MY Way Of The Ninja!

by Grant Whiteon April 25, 2012
Naruto is a series I have an odd off-again, on-again relationship with. I’d been following it since just shortly before its massive push in America. A lot had happened in the story by that point, so right as a bunch of new fans were getting interested, my own interest was on the decline. I continue […]

"Fairy Tail Part 1 (UK Edition)": Guilded Love

by Grant Whiteon April 17, 2012
Fairy Tail is set in an alternate reality where magic is a very real commodity, sold, traded and used by wizards for various tasks. The wizards themselves are grouped into various guilds, and one of the most infamous is Fairy Tail, famed for having completed a great number of quests and slaying a great number […]

"Gundam AGE Limited Edition Blu-ray Volume 1": This Is the AGE of 'Are These Prices Serious?'

by Grant Whiteon March 26, 2012
It’s become the tradition now for new Gundam series to appear roughly every two to three years. In contrast to the high turnover rate of the 90s, this gives fans a bit of breathing space between the big pushes. The previous series, Gundam 00, acquitted itself well, but seemingly failed to become a long term […]

"Tekken: Blood Vengeance" (UK Edition): And You Thought Your Family Reunions Were Awkward

by Grant Whiteon February 6, 2012
An honest admission- I have never played Tekken. The series began in the glory days of the original Playstation, at a time when I lacked financial independence and was told there was no need to upgrade from my sturdy but now quite outdated Mega Drive. Since then I have advanced to owning both a Playstation […]

Originally started in 2010 in order to win a rare Toy Fair brochure for the reference of all fans, donations to the effort exceeded the needed amount and led to the start of the charity drive with the brochure […]
