Anime review: Tsuritama

Anime review: Tsuritama


Tsuritama is the kind of anime series I’d recommend to someone who’s ill in bed or feeling down. This show is pure happiness and joy distilled into 12 episodes – it’s just so… whimsical! The plot of Tsuritama is deceptively ‘slice of life'; Yuki Sanada moves to the island of Enoshima with his grandmother, another … Continue reading

Anime review: Michiko and Hatchin

Anime review: Michiko and Hatchin


Michiko and Hatchin is Japan’s answer to Thelma and Louise with a couple of key differences; it’s set in South America and features a smoking hot mother and her ten year-old daughter. This series is an entertaining romp packed with gun fights, police chases, an unconventional mother-and-daughter relationship and motorbikes. It might take a few … Continue reading

Anime review: Psycho-Pass

Anime review: Psycho-Pass


I recently discovered Netflix now has a healthy amount of anime series, which is good news for this blog and bad news for the new book I’m writing (I’m nearly half way through the first draft – hooray!) So, I decided to kick my anime-watching year off with a bang and marathoned Psycho-Pass in a weekend. I was … Continue reading

From the New World – the best anime


Every couple of years you come across an anime series that ticks all the boxes; moving story, real dilemmas, fantastic yet believable, beautiful animation, well-developed characters, emotive soundtrack. ‘From the New World’, a new release from MVM Entertainment, is that series for me. I’ve watched my fair share of anime over what must be the … Continue reading

Double anime review: Accel World and Btooom!

Double anime review: Accel World and Btooom!


Seeing as I have a few anime reviews to get through, I thought I’d try something different this week. I recently watched Accel World and Btoom! from MVM Entertainment, both series about video games and virtual worlds… so I thought I’d make them fight each other! We’ll go through a couple of key points about … Continue reading

‘Another': anime review

‘Another': anime review


Since I started studying for a Diploma last month, my anime-watching time has been somewhat reduced and I’ve been a lot more selective in my viewing habits. This was why I chose to watch ‘Another’, a recent release from MVM Entertainment, among all the other great shows available to buy at the moment. ‘Another’ is … Continue reading

Arakawa Under the Bridge review

Arakawa Under the Bridge review


‘Arakawa Under the Bridge’ is one of those anime series that is so bizarre that it makes absolutely no sense, and yet there’s some deep hidden meaning behind the insanity that it actually makes a  great amount of sense. Does that make any sense at all? I thought not. Right from the beginning, this show … Continue reading
