by Grant Whiteon February 20, 2018
It’s been over a year since the last The Origin review. Some of that is production drama (the original director was let go over misconduct, delaying the next episode) and some of it is down to odd release choices.

Toonzone @ MCM London Comic Con October 2017 – “Violet Evergarden” Episode One UK Premiere Review

by Grant Whiteon November 5, 2017
Part of the reason I hold so much respect for Anime Limited as a company is that as someone who was an anime fan during the post-Pokemon 21st century anime boom I know what it’s like to live in the UK and miss out on the opportunities fans elsewhere get. Sure it’s great to have […]
