Flying Witch Volume 1 Review

The comforting warmth and peace prevalent in The Flying Witch is exactly what I expect from a slice of life manga. The unbound sincerity coupled with the slow pace is what I imagine what life would be like in a quiet rural town, which, Flying Witch captures perfectly. The experience of reading Flying Witch is almost like laying in a bed of flowers, surrounded by bunnies in an open field on the most beautiful Spring day. Life in the country can get a bit dull, but what better way to have some fun than by throwing in some MAGIC! The story follows Makoto Kowata, a young girl who has “come into age”...


Log Horizon: The West Wind Brigade Volume 3 Review

If you don’t recall, The West Wind Brigade is a guild from Log Horizon led by Akihabara’s and the Round Table’s very own Soujiro Seta.

Devil is a Part-Timer! High School! Volume 4 Review

I’ll start by being blunt; If you’re looking for the same quirky feeling the original series The Devil is a Part-Timer! left you with, then you might want to look elsewhere. Devil is a Part-Timer! High School! Volume 4 is similar to the original series in the characters it shares but differs in some significant ways. But I don’t mean to deter you, it has it’s own merits as well. The High School! spinoff reimagines the world of the devil king as a mundane high-schooler. In a much more condensed storyline, Maou and party are in a heated competition that will determine the school’s fate: the student council election! More...


God Eater 2: Rage Burst Review

God Eater 2: Rage Burst is a monster hunter-style action RPG that surprisingly has enough variety and tasks to keep you occupied for hours. This was my first time experiencing the franchise’s game and I am glad considering how satisfied I was with the gameplay. Set three years after the events of the original God Eater Burst, you begin your journey as a newly qualified God Eater joining an elite squad known as Blood. For those that are unfamiliar with the game or anime, God Eaters are super-soldiers who wield powerful weapons known as God Arcs used to battle and destroy monsters known as Aragami. Thankfully you are able to dive...
