Review: “Sword Art Online II – Volume One Collector’s Edition (UK Edition)”: Bringing A Sword To A Gun Fight?

by Grant Whiteon October 19, 2015
As I said the last time I reviewed a show inspired by MMORPGs, the genre has never really been my thing. I have my creative outlets which includes writing (though my poor editor may feel differently) but I’ve got enough commitments and drama in my real life to carve out a second one. That said, […]

by Grant Whiteon August 25, 2015

Review: “Strange Magic” – I Can’t Help Falling In Love with This Cliché

by Neo Yion May 26, 2015
 As billions of movies, books, TV shows, internet blogs, and hand puppet shows can attest to, love is an endearingly popular subject. The problem is that love stories are hard to write.
