A Silent Voice

I’ll be honest, I don’t like small kids very much. I mention this because I get the feeling that A Silent Voice might be agreeing with me. Let’s start with the short version. In elementary school our protagonist, Shoya Ishida, ruthlessly bullied a deaf girl

Review: Drifters

Crossovers are nothing new, nor is the concept of taking characters out of their own time zones to try and have some epic war (to this day I still shudder at the thought of ‘The Five Doctors) and yet Drifters is a thing, bringing together

Review: ReLIFE

January rolls on and catch-up season is in full swing. First on my list of things I didn’t watch in 2016 was ReLIFE, and yet another high school romcom. What makes ReLIFE any different to the God only knows how many other shows in the

Nerima Daikon Brothers (review)

Everyone has a dream. Something they wish they were doing instead of the menial task at hand. And the Nerima Daikon Brothers are no different as they dream of building a stage on their Daikon farm and singing to roaring crowds. Unfortunately, like most in

Yuri!!! on ICE (Review)

In recent years we have seen a surge in the sheer number of sports anime. Everything from Basketball to Cycling has been done and more are set for the near future too. However, there’s one sports anime which has stood out from the rest and

KonoSuba

It’s really starting to get to the point where the theme of ‘I’ve died and been reincarnated in another world/trapped in another world’ is really starting to be over saturated. Sword Art Online, .Hack, Log Horizon, Re:Zero and Overlord are but a few of the

Skip Beat!

There are many ways to describe me but ‘up-to-date’ is rarely one of them. A large chunk of what I consume comes from end year ‘Best Of’ lists and the generally accepted classics. This is especially true when it comes to anime, rather than watching
