Review: "Tiger & Bunny: The Rising (UK Edition)": This Summer's Surprise Superhero Hit

by Grant Whiteon July 20, 2015
Last year I reviewed Anime Limited’s release of Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning, a compilation lead in movie to the popular superhero anime. It left a strong impression on me and I commented it had increased my desire to finally watch the full show. I have to confess that’s an ambition I haven’t fulfilled in […]

Review: "Kill la Kill Volume 3 Blu-ray (UK Edition)" - Puts Its Glad Rags On

by Grant Whiteon July 6, 2015
The second volume of Kill la Kill ended with various big reveals. Satsuki was not the villain she appeared to be, her mother was plotting to offer humanity to alien life that was the genesis of clothing on Earth, and (perhaps most shocking of all) Ryuko was related to both of them: the long lost […]

Review: "The Wings of Honneamise Blu-ray/DVD Combi (UK Edition)": There's A Starman Waiting In The Sky

by Grant Whiteon July 1, 2015
Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise is one of those anime titles that is always spoken of with respectful awe. The film is one of the earliest works of Gainax and co-produced by Bandai Visual, who would adopt the Honneamise name for the ill-fated BVUS venture. It focuses on the Kingdom of Honneamise on […]

Review: "Kill la Kill Volume 2 Blu-ray (UK Edition)": One Size Fits Most

by Grant Whiteon April 17, 2015
Ami Koshimizu. Hmm?…Oh. My editor is telling me that a name is not an argument for or against this title. I’d argue given the identity of said actress the exact opposite is true, but he’s the boss. Kill la Kill is the debut television work of Trigger, a studio founded by talents formerly tied to […]

Review: "Over the Garden Wall" UK Premiere: Tests Your Courage, Respects Your Brain

by Grant Whiteon April 6, 2015
The phrase ‘family entertainment’ has become somewhat awkward to modern audiences. Although meant to suggest that a production can be enjoyed by all ages, it’s come to usually refer to something aimed almost entirely at the mentality of children, with maybe some ‘over their head’ jokes to keep the accompanying adults awake. I highlight this […]

Review: "Thunderbirds Are Go" World Premiere - High Charged Heroism, No Strings Attached

by Grant Whiteon April 1, 2015
A good idea is effectively timeless and this is certainly the case with fiction. No matter how old a good story concept gets, it will continue to resonate with audiences for generations to come. This is clearly the case with the works of the late Gerry Anderson. Anderson is famous in the British public consciousness […]

Review: "Transformers: Robots in Disguise": Plight Of The Bumblebee

by Grant Whiteon March 13, 2015
Back in 2010 I reviewed the premiere episodes of Transformers: Prime, Hasbro’s then latest entry in the franchise and a focal point of the ‘Aligned continuity’ that would attempt to focus on a specially constructed long term universe. I gave the premiere a favourable review and when the show drew to a close after three […]

Review: "Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin I: Blue Eyed Casval" - What The Red Comet Speeds From

by Grant Whiteon March 6, 2015
Although most of the attention seemed to go to plans for the anniversary coming in five years, Gundam’s 35th anniversary did not pass without incident. For the first time in a while, two Gundam shows have been broadcast at the same time: Reconguista in G and Build Fighters Try. As both these shows near the […]

by Grant Whiteon February 2, 2015
Staz Charlie Blood is the progeny of a noble vampire bloodline. Although Staz is aware of the common trappings and behaviours his heritage entails, he has no interest in such things and instead uses his power to rule as the fair boss of the Eastern territory of Demon World while building up his apartment shrine […]
