Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Four Review: “A Lesson In History”

by Joshua Baileyon June 9, 2018
I previously mentioned how it felt like the Miles and Tag subplot was starting to overstay its welcome. I’m glad, then, that this episode puts it to bed once and for all, as it clears the air between the two of them and gives us a whopping feast of backstory. Nearly all of the episode […]

After a successful premiere on 7Two in Australia, in addition to several Disney Channel networks throughout Africa and Europe, BES Animation has launched a YouTube channel for Kitty Is Not A Cat.  I’ve had my eye on this series for quite a while and even wrote about how I thought it would be something special.  Having […]

Toonzone @ MCM London May 2018 – Review: “Gundam The Origin VI” – The End Of The Beginning

by Grant Whiteon June 3, 2018
So here we are. Four years after I began this series of reviews, the sixth and final episode of the Gundam The Origin OVA is here at last. It’s a sombre milestone for a few reasons, chiefly that by all evidence this is indeed the end of The Origin as an animated adaptation and we […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Three Review: “Tunnel Vision”

by Joshua Baileyon June 2, 2018
When I first started watching Rimba Racer, it wasn’t until halfway through the season, when King made his offer to Tag, that I truly fell in love with it. The races were fun and I always looked forward to them, but it was the conspiracies and the drama that got me hooked. This episode, then, […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Two Review: “Right On Time”

by Joshua Baileyon May 26, 2018
I’ve always loved clock levels in video games. Tick Tock Clock, in Super Mario 64, was one of the best levels in the game. With its spinning gears and swinging pendulums, the level’s moving parts made for a challenging platforming experience. It’s rarer to find cartoons that make use of the setting, but clock towers […]

Review: “Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time” – The Witching Hour

by Grant Whiteon May 18, 2018
Little Witch Academia is a Japanese animated series created by Studio Trigger. The series is a pastiche of the likes of Harry Potter and The Worst Witch; in a version of our world where magic is an openly known if considered archaic force, young Japanese girl Akko thrills to the stage shows of the witch […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode One Review: “Back In The Game”

by Joshua Baileyon May 12, 2018
The first season of Glue Studios’ Rimba Racer stunned me by how well written it was.  I went into it expecting a fairly straight-forward racing cartoon but quickly found it to be so much more.  Its narrative weaved through many twists and turns, taking the show in unexpected directions and leading up to a season finale […]

Animation Abroad – BES Animation’s Kitty Is Not A Cat

by Joshua Baileyon April 10, 2018
In 2009, The Amazing World Of Gumball was first announced. I fell in love with the show right away and I followed its development as closely as I could, regularly doing numerous searches online for any scrap of information about it. When it premiered in 2011, I was not disappointed, and the show went on […]
