Flying Witch Volume 4 Review

Volume 4 for Flying Witch helps close off the winter season with the friendliness of a bunny and eagerness to be on a warm beach. The progression of Makoto’s experiences have, in my opinion now, reached the point where we get a bigger picture...


Helvetica Standard Bold and Helvetica Standard Italic Review

There is something to be said about Keiichi Arawi’s sense of humor and style when you know you are in for a good time purely based upon knowing about his prior work. Knowing that, and the fact that all of Helvetica Standard Bold and Helvetica Standard...


Dissolving Classroom Review

Junji Ito is the equivalent to a Japanese graphic novel version of Stephen King, in the sense that they both are masters of horror and each have their own unique way of disturbing their audiences. Stephen relies on the image that he has created...


Flying Witch Volume 3 Review

As before, I’m excited I have had the chance and took the time to once again dive back into Flying Witch Volume 3 by Chihiro Ishizuka. The series is such a pleasure to read, delivering what it promises, an enjoyable and wholesome journey from start to...


Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz Volume 1 Review

I feel this review needs a bit of a preface. I’ve seen countless things that try to prey on my nostalgia as a child of the 90’s. People my age have made it clear that this is a hook they’re very willing to bite....


She and Her Cat Review

Before we begin, She and Her Cat was originally was an anime short directed by the famed Makoto Shinkai (director of Your Name, 5 Centimeters Per Second, and The Place Promised in Our Early Days). This might make you think that there will be some sad and bittersweet...


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,...


Blame! Master Edition Volume 3 Review

Compared to Nihei’s Knights of Sidonia series, Blame! is on a completely different level. The best way I could describe Blame! would be to call it Knights of Sidonia‘s visceral older brother. If all the death and destruction that was brought about in that series was up your alley, then Blame!...


Blame! Master Edition Volume 2 Review

Before we start anything out, we are going to mention some things about the Master Edition of Blame!. This master edition of the series is certainly that: a masterful rendition of the popular manga. It is heavy, the color and feel of the large book is incredible....


To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts Volume 3 Review

Volume 2 of To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts  certainly left the reader with quite the cliffhanger; Cain Madhouse had unleashed a horde of incarnates on the nobles of Northern Patria in the city of Whitechurch, Nancy was shot by Cain at that same gathering, and Hank...


Log Horizon: The West Wind Brigade Volume 3 Review

Oh the joys and struggles of The West Wind Brigade! Especially those well-endowed “joys”. 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. The fiery and relentless dream...


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...


To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts Volume 2 Review

After finishing the first volume of To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts, I found myself enthralled in the story and anxiously waiting for new volumes to be released. That time has come and I’m happy to say that To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Volume 2 was no less of...


Tokyo ESP Volume 5 Review

Things have been looking rather dismal for our characters in this volume of Tokyo ESP. Since the last volume’s huge departure from the main characters we have experienced up until now, we were finally rewarded for our patience. Both old villains and heroes have finally returned and...


How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend Volume 3 Review

The anime of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend blindsided us back in the spring season of 2015. So it comes as no surprise that the manga would be just as solid. Those who are fans of the anime certainly need to check out the...
