Ashens_1

Hello! Ashens And The Quest For The GameChild! Available on DVD and Blu-ray. Collect them all! Ok, let’s stop this. Clearly I am not a brown sofa patch on the man himself, nor is this a video review (though I am British and live in a house in East Anglia with too much plastic tat). […]

OutlawStar5

Maybe it’s just because my most coherent formative years were part of it and that most of the initial Japanese titles I sampled came from it, but I have a soft spot for 90’s anime. There just seems to be an energy in the titles from the decade that I don’t think quite transitioned into […]
