by Maxie Zeuson July 2, 2012
Fans of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood who are suffering withdrawal from the show may find solace in the release the “4 OVAs and Comic Theater,” lately released by FUNimation in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack. This collection four short (plus one very short) stories from the FMA franchise contains only minor pleasures, but they are Fullmetal pleasures, […]

"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 Maxie Zeuson 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
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

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 […]

by Chad Boninon May 31, 2012
You need help doing something? The Otogi High School Bank is there to help. They’ll do a favor for you, and you’ll just owe them one. Oh, don’t be afraid of the wolf-like girl Ryoko Okami, she’s just a bit rough around the edges, but she’s got a good heart. The little red girl in […]

"Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker": Seek, But Don’t Expect to Find

by Ed Liuon May 29, 2012
I can understand (if not entirely agree with) the continuing fascination with turning video games into movies even though the hit-to-miss ratio is so abysmally bad. In theory, at least, such adaptations can springboard off the characters, settings, and stories of a game, filling in blanks or expanding on aspects left underdeveloped, in addition to […]
