Review: “Deadman Wonderland (UK Edition)”: Human Decency Exits Through The Gift Shop

by Grant Whiteon October 1, 2013
Paranoia and conspiracy. The unsettling feeling that you’re just another face in the juggernaut that is modern society and that you’d be powerless if it turned against you.

Review: “The Aquabats! Super Show! Season One (UK Edition)” – Earth’s Funniest Heroes

by Grant Whiteon September 27, 2013

by KarlOlsonon September 18, 2013
In the post-Evangelion landscape, mecha anime became even more serious, deeply philosophical and emotionally overwrought. I say even more, because really those wheels had been set in motion since Gundam, which marked a major shift away from super robots as toyetic kids shows, and towards “war is hell” allegories. However, post-Evangelion, stories tended to be […]

Review: “Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere Season 1 (UK Edition)” – Nowhere Near What You’d Expect

by Grant Whiteon September 16, 2013
Usually I’d offer a brief explanation of the plot’s starting point but on this occasion I find myself more than a bit bewildered. As the adaptation of a later saga in a massive sci-fi epic, Horizon does itself few favours by beginning the show with a hurdle in the form of a four episode ‘introduction’ […]

Review: “Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion (UK Edition)” – That Difficult Second Act

by Grant Whiteon August 21, 2013
The first Mardock Scramble movie went to very dark places, ending with resurrected teenage prostitute Rune Balot at the mercy of enemy agent Boiled after having abused the trust of her living weapon partner Oeufcoque. The second film continues directly on from this point as the terrified Balot attempts to escape. Admittedly her means of […]
