by Peter Paltridgeon May 31, 2017
Readers of Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter Hunter are well familiar with the artist’s frequent breaks from the manga, mainly due to chronic back pain.

Review: “Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 2” – Lock Up the Wolves

by Weathermanon May 26, 2017
When we last saw the Makai Knights in Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 1, things were good and not so good. The villainous Mendoza had been deposed, though neither easily nor cheaply. German has left to continue his work cleaning up the last of the Horrors, Ema is just plain gone, and poor Alphonso […]

Review: “Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 1” – Neon Knights

by Weathermanon May 25, 2017
Garo: The Animation concerns itself with one Leon Luis, orphan son of a witch (the magic using kind, not the generally-unpleasant-woman kind). Leon has issues. So so so many issues. He has no home, no friends, no living mom, and no actual dad. All he does have is a somewhat hedonistic guardian named German Luis. […]

Review: “Digimon Adventure Tri: Reunion” – Prodigious! This Digi-Movie is a Digi-Blast!

by Neo Yion May 25, 2017
Previously considered cult classics tucked away in the back of VHS stores in the “Foreign” section, anime reached broader range in the mid-90s, with the gateway drug for many being the money-making monstrosity that is the Pokémon franchise. Its pop cultural impact cannot be understated, so it should not be a surprise that FOX Kids […]

Review: “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” – The Kids Are (Mostly) Alright

by macattackon May 24, 2017
WARNING: Spoilers for the end of the Naruto manga and the Naruto Shippuden anime series are placed throughout this review. This is unavoidable due to Boruto‘s subject matter. This is your only warning. It’s hard to believe that the Naruto manga had ended back in 2014. It seems like the franchise has never truly left us, since the Naruto Shippuden anime kept going […]

Review: “One-Punch Man” – Superman as the Salaryman

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison May 22, 2017
Superhero stories are dime a dozen in our media landscape today, but few if any tackle the genre with a perfect balance of penetrating satire and loving tribute the way One-Punch Man does. In a genre where physical feats or high ideals (or the lack of the latter) so often take center stage, here we […]
