Then I thought,... Continue Reading →

Scarlet Vol 1 Review

Scarlet is a dark-fantasy, yuri manga by Chiri Yuino that I had originally assumed was about vampires, based on the cover art. Turns out, it’s actually about werewolves. Looking at the cover again, the red riding hood get-up is kind of a dead giveaway. Synopsis: Since she was a child, the most important person in... Continue Reading →

Given Vol 1 Review

Given was by far my favourite anime to debut last year and I’ve been excitedly awaiting the release of the original manga by Natsuki Kizu, so that I could experience more of this incredible story. So, for once, I’m in a position where I’m reviewing a manga with an anime adaptation that I’ve actually watched!... Continue Reading →

Beyond the Clouds Vol 1 Review

Beyond the Clouds: The Girl Who Fell From the Sky is a manga-style, fantasy comic by Nicke which was originally published in France.

Pokémon Sword & Shield Review

Pokémon Sword and Shield have been out for about three months now and in that time I've managed to beat game, played through the post-game story line and am well on my way to completing the pokedex.

Whoo boy! This volume of Beastars was a real emotional-rollercoaster ride!

Living-Room Matsunaga-San Vol 1 Review

I can’t tell you how many shojo manga stories I’ve read where the writer has concocted some convoluted scenario that forces the romantic leads to live together. It’s a classic set-up that throws the potential couple together in an intimate setting and then lets the sparks fly. Keiko Iwashita, the writer/artist of Living-Room Matsunaga-San, has...
