"Hetalia World Series": Trans-Atlantic Alliance

by Grant Whiteon July 4, 2012
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

by Grant Whiteon June 29, 2012
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 […]

"Blue Exorcist" Vol. 3: Devil Feud Cake

by on June 20, 2012
Blue Exorcist is definitely not the kind of series you want to launch into the middle of. Whether it’s the kind of series you want to launch into at all is a different question, and you’d best consult Nick Hobbs for an answer to that one. But it’s up to me to say something about […]

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

by Grant Whiteon June 18, 2012
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

by Grant Whiteon June 14, 2012

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

by Grant Whiteon June 12, 2012
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 […]
