Watching ‘School Live!’

Watching ‘School Live!’


School Live! (Gakkou Gurashi!) crept up on me, almost like a zombie epidemic creeping up on an unsuspecting populace. Oddly enough, this series sits in two categories I normally don’t watch – high school/slice of life and zombies. But I’d heard it had been well received when it originally released in Japan so, hoping to … Continue reading

I love ‘My Love Story!!’

I love ‘My Love Story!!’


If My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari) was a person I’d hug it to death. I never realised how badly I needed this series in my life.

You know what the … Continue reading

Anime review: Haibane Renmei

Anime review: Haibane Renmei

That might sound like a strange thing to say but, given how limited my anime-watching time’s been this year, it’s better to watch something that’s “great” rather than just “alright”. Haibane Renmei, recently licensed by MVM Entertainment, was first broadcast in Japan in 2002 but its art, … Continue reading

Anime review: Hakkenden

Anime review: Hakkenden


I’ve long been a fan of fantasy stories in general, so fantasy anime is understandably one of my favourite genres. That said, there’s both good and bad series around and, after you’ve watched a certain amount, you feel like you’ve seen it all. I was therefore pleased that MVM Entertainment’s latest release, Hakkenden: Eight Dogs … Continue reading
