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...

Captain Planet – Season 1

Boy oh boy did I love Captain Planet as a kid! I remember running around primary school with my wind ring on (because of course I wanted to be the cool blonde female character) and singing the theme song as loud as I could.

Powerpuff Girls The Complete Series DVD Box Set

It’s hard to tell who this was made for. As a fully adulted male, it would be easy for me to take a quick glance, decide that Powerpuff Girls isn’t for me and move on. This would be a mistake. Powerpuff Girls could be considered a peer of SpongeBob SquarePants or Adventure Time, that growing family of moder...

A choose your own adventure K-drama!

“Click Your Heart” is a choose-your-own-adventure high school romance drama – probably aimed at teens but since when has that stopped me? Each episode ends with a choice for our leading lady to make (usually a choice between boys) and we get to see each different option played out! AOA’s Mina pl...

Psycho-Pass Review

What if crime could be biologically determined? What if we had a criminal justice system that was perfectly objective, accurate, and mechanical? What if we lived in a world where we could predict and prevent crime from happening by just looking at someone’s current mental state? Psycho-Pass first started ai...
