Haruta & Chika (Haruchika)

Haruta & Chika (Haruchika) combines two of my favourite genres of anime: slice-of-life and mystery.

We’re first introduced to Chika who, with the ambition of restarting her reputation to becom...

Dragon Ball Z Kai

Dragon Ball Z (which I shall refer to as ‘DBZ’) is one of the colossal epics of our time. I would honestly put it up there with Lord of the Rings and the Odyssey, which is about as high praise as I can give. Now I don’t mean that it is as good as LOTR or the Odyssey but in terms of scale of story and imagin...

Attack on Titan – Season One

So season 1 of Attack on Titan is finally out on DVD and Blu Ray!

Over the Garden Wall

There is something in the woods… As a child, I harboured a fear (though I never told anyone) of becoming lost in the woods.

Black Butler: Book of Murder

Okay, so I watched Book of Murder without any prior experience of Black Butler. The extent of the knowledge I have on Black Butler comes from Tumblr. All I knew before starting this OVA was that Sebastian was a butler from hell (I know this fact in no context, so it makes no sense to me), and that Ciel’s pa...
