Immortal Hounds Volume 1 Review

The fear of death is typically something that everyone shares. However, only a small few hold this fear in Immortal Hounds. Welcome to a world where most people revive instantaneously as they die. Sick or injured? Kill yourself and you’re all better. For some with a...


Nichijou: My Ordinary Life Volume 3 Review

If Nichijou: My Ordinary Life were to win an award, it would certainly be for being beautifully absurd. It takes regular jokes, then goes so far beyond the line with them, never taking itself seriously. Every character within this series is always trying to do something simple, and...


To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts Volume 1 Review

As a disclaimer, I went into To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Volume 1 with absolutely no idea of what I was getting myself into. Which was perfect, as I would argue is the best way to get into a new story is simply by diving right...


Ninja Slayer: Last Girl Standing Review

The world of Ninja Slayer is quite a dystopian and violent one. Last I reviewed it, I claimed the world as being pretty high quality, even if the narrative can be incredibly difficult to follow. Honestly, that claim is still perfectly valid. We are introduced to the...


Witchcraft Works Volume 8 Review

I thought that entering into a new arc would present some interesting moments in Witchcraft Works volume 8, but I was severely mistaken. One of my gripes with the last volume of the series was that the story seemed to have slowed down a bit. With a...


My Hero Academia Volume 2 Review

When I started reading My Hero Academia with the first volume, I had high hopes for the series. It seemed almost as if it was made specifically to close the gap between Japanese and American comics, and that’s something that I felt gave it more...


Tokyo ESP Volume 3 Review

Just when things couldn’t get any more insane, Tokyo ESP volume 3 takes the story one step further. Although it may seem like everything was coming to a final explosive conclusion (literally), we still have much further to go. Given that this is Tokyo ESP, there are...


Tokyo ESP Volume 2 Review

The girl with the white hair returns in Tokyo ESP Volume 2 to kick more evil doers straight in the face. While the internet may still be full of criticism when it comes to the anime, at the very least, everyone can agree that the Tokyo ESP source...


Terra Formars Volume 10 Review

Unlike the last volume of Terra Formars, you can expect action at a steady pace through Terra Formars Volume 10. This issue is a must read for multiple reasons, chief among them is that we finally see M.A.R.S. Rank #1 in action.  You wouldn’t be far off if you were...


Terra Formars Volume 9 Review

Volume 9 of Terra Formars is chalk full of the backstory for relationships and is less focused on the fighting than what we’re used to. There is a lot of pre-mission Earth as well as tons of other backstory in this manga. If you’re worried that backstory means...


Honey So Sweet Volume 1 Review

This one is a little out of the ordinary for stories I typically read. So instead I made a video to review the shojo Honey So Sweet volume by Amu Meguro. Check it out below: Author and Illustrator: Amu Meguro Publisher: VIZ Media Release Date: January...


Ninja Slayer: Machine of Vengeance Part 1 Review

Ninja Slayer: Machine of Vengeance. A manga recommended on the cover to be for 13+. A well-deserved warning, honestly. It follows a ninja calling himself Ninja Slayer (the hypocrisy being explained within the volume as saying “Soldiers should not be stronger than ninja.”) on...


Tiger & Bunny Volume 8 Review

Superheros, Corporate Sponsors, and Violence Induced Banter Tiger & Bunny volume 8 continues the very curious, action packed, and more often than not comical story. For those who are not aware, Tiger & Bunny is about superheros who not only fight crime, but also promote corporations...


Witchcraft Works Volume 7 Review

Now that the latest arc in Witchcraft Works has wrapped up, things have started to slow down in a big way. Where the previous volumes have been increasingly action packed, Witchcraft Works Volume 7 takes things down a notch back to where things are normal again, or at...


Tokyo ESP Volume 1 Review

It is not everyday where you get granted super powers and become a hero of justice by a school of flying fish. With enough blatant references to X-Men, Ghostbusters, and 300, Tokyo ESP does a lot of things right and manages to retain the reader’s engagement from start to...
