One Piece Color Walk 1+ 2 Review

One Piece is an anime series that likes to take it's characters to new places with new things to see. In every arc, there are new characters, new pirates to beat up, and new places to explore each with their own theme and colour palate. Suffice to say an anime series based off a manga … Continue reading One Piece Color Walk 1+ 2 Review

From Casual Reader to News Writer: How I Became an Internet Writer

As an introverted teenager, I found solace in the corner stroking my iPod and listening to the voices of the Internet i.e. podcasts. They were the only ones that shared my passion for games, anime, and geeky culture in general so it was a dream of mine to become an Internet writer. Getting review copies, … Continue reading From Casual Reader to News Writer: How I Became an Internet Writer

Quick Thoughts: Hanamonogatari

The last time I checked in on Araragi and his harem of quick talking gag spewing oddity belles I stated that I wasn't overly hyped for the new season. I'm still a big fan of the Monogatari series but after spending a whole summer catching up on the series it can cause fatigue. Allowing myself a … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: Hanamonogatari

Quick Thoughts: Amagi Brilliant Park

When I first look at the promotional pictures of Amagi Brilliant Park I thought I knew what it was about. Generic handsome looking protagonist, busty tsundere lead with some sort of weapon, frail blonde girl. Yep looks like another romantic comedy/harem anime. I can foresee the mascot characters being overtly pervy and getting away with … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: Amagi Brilliant Park

RWBY Figures: Ruby Rose Figure by ThreeZero

Unlike most anime made these days, RWBY hasn't capitalised on the merchandise that could be made from the series. I was expecting a tsunami of drama CDs, dakimakura, keychains, phone cases, and art books. Instead there has been a steady trickle of promising figurines by McFarlane Toys. Recently Rooster Teeth have partnered with ThreeZero to … Continue reading RWBY Figures: Ruby Rose Figure by ThreeZero

RWBY Figure: Jaune Arc

Last summer saw the release of Blake and Yang figures made by McFarlane Toys adapted from the popular web anime series RWBY. While I was critical of the design of all four girls they seem to be selling well enough to warrant a whole second season. This time it'll focus on the JNPR team starting with their … Continue reading RWBY Figure: Jaune Arc

Quick Thoughts: Attack on Titan

If you're not already watching Attack on Titan then stop reading this and head over to crunchyroll and start watching. If you're reading the manga or watching the sub, then I'd suggest you still head over and watch the dub because it's quite good. Either way just start watching Attack on Titan because it's the … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: Attack on Titan

Udon’s Art of Capcom Complete Edition Review

Udon has been around for 14 years, working closely with Capcom to produce comics, art books, and video games and bring us closer to our favourite franchises. I've been a fan of Udon ever since Kotaku wrote a post about their first art book Udon's Art of Capcom. It was big, bold, and showed that … Continue reading Udon’s Art of Capcom Complete Edition Review

A fond goodbye to the world of ninjas.

At the tail end of 2014, one of the great three shonen manga/anime series finally ends after 15 years in publication. Although they've still got a movie in the works and I'm sure Kishimoto wouldn't be against making spin offs of these incredibly popular characters, I'm glad they've closed the book on the orange clad ninja. … Continue reading A fond goodbye to the world of ninjas.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Except for Ruby Rose

A rather lengthy title for saying, I've dropped RWBY from my weekly watching list. I had high hopes for Monty Oum's anime written by Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross as I'm a big fan of Haloid, and Dead Fantasy. They were lite on story but visually the narrative elements were there; Dead or Alive girls hate on … Continue reading A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Except for Ruby Rose
