Lately, I have been watching the original 90’s Sailor Moon anime series just for the nostalgia. That said, if you take into account the story telling and animation, this series (although doesn’t really hold up in this day and age) is one of the most cleaver animated shows. Being able to do drama, as well as comedy and deliver it with perfection is rare, something … Continue reading Anime Rewind: Follow your dreams! Taking a look at the best eps of Sailor Moon Super S
I know I am jumping the gun by claiming that this event is the ‘Party of the Year’ in June, but that is exactly how I feel, and really still feeling. MadFest Brisbane 2018 has left the greatest impression on me. It was such an incredible convention that because I was so busy having fun, I actually didn’t get much footage. I do have some … Continue reading MadFest Brisbane ’18: Why it was the party of the Year!

Normally I don’t drop a review until I have watched the whole series, however seven episodes deep I can honestly say that I love this show. This week Netflix dropped their latest anime ‘Kakegurui’ onto their streaming service and it has been one that has been most anticipated by anime fans since late last year. For me personally every episode leaves you craving more and … Continue reading “Life is just a gamble” Review of ‘Kakegurui’
This is a short review so apologies in advance but… Have you ever watch an anime series and wonder why it got so much hate on the internet, this was me with GATE. I went into this series blind. When I started to watch the series I thought ‘Well this is rather interesting’ and it managed to capture my interest. Everything about it was what … Continue reading ‘No going back!’ Review of “GATE Complete Series” DVD/Blu Ray release
Well, what a year it was for anime in 2017. Arguably a very simple year in regards to anime, there were a few stand outs that took our breath away. It’s always hard when you go back and reflect on the year that it was in regards to anime; the year where we had some unbelievable shows and some that were absolutely rubbish, fans were … Continue reading Better late than never! The Top Five Anime of 2017
If you were to say a few year back “You are going to watch an anime about male cheerleaders and love it!” I probably would have laughed in your face. Fast forward to now and here I am smiling and just loving all these boys. “Cheer Boys” to me was an underrated hit in 2016. Granted this show came out at a time when there … Continue reading “GO! FIGHT! WIN!” DVD Review of “Cheer Boys-The Complete Series”
So I honestly don’t know what I was actually thinking when I said ‘I would like to review this one for the site’. When I got this copy thank to our friends from Madman Entertainment I looked at the rating and said to myself I just need to be open minded and give it a go. Oh boy…. ‘The Testament of Sister New Devil’ is … Continue reading ‘All in the family’ DVD Review of “The Testament of Sister New Devil Season One”
