Weird finds in Akihabara and Ikebukuro!

Weird finds in Akihabara and Ikebukuro!


It’s a well known fact that Japan has plenty of ‘weird’ stuff, and many of those things happen to be in Tokyo. So, I decided a load of holiday photos from Akihabara and Ikebukuro would be a nice way to take you on a mini tour of some of the ‘weird’ things we found in Tokyo. Don’t … Continue reading

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!)

From the New World – the best anime

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

It’s my birthday this week and you know what that means – competition time! This one’s the best one yet and comes courtesy of the fantastic guys at MVM Entertainment, who’ve licensed one of my all-time favourite anime series, ‘Hakuoki’. Up for grabs is not only the first season, but the second (‘Hakuoki Hekketsuroku’) and … 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
