Uratarou Manga Review

Uratarou is a manga by Atsuhi Nakayama that like so many manga out there, got cancelled before it could really achieve greatness. It actually had more of a start than most manga get, but that couldn't save it. There is still an ending here though, but it's about what you'd expect. There are still some... Continue Reading →


Memories Anime Review

Anime anthology films are rarer than anthology films in live action, which seems strange if you think about it. It's a lot easier to animate something well if it's short.

Monster Manga Review

Monster is Naoki Urasawa's best known work, and it's not just because it has an anime. This is easily his most accessible work because of how mundane it starts.

Like most Urasawa manga, this one is confusing, complex, and a masterpiece. It is one of his harder manga to get into though. Billy Bat begins with... Continue Reading →

Normally I don't talk about myself too much in these posts, but here, I am making an exception. Parasyte or Kiseiju by Hitoshi Iwaaki is one of my favorite manga and it's the manga that expanded my horizons beyond the battle shonen genre. For my reviews I always make sure to read or watch the... Continue Reading →

A Silent Voice Manga Review

Whenever a manga or anime has a unique or emotional premise, the work usually gets unwarranted praise even if it completely fails to deliver on it's premise. A Silent Voice or Koe no Katachi by Yoshitoki Oima has one of those types of premises. Luckily, this manga deserves some amount of the praise it gets, though it... Continue Reading →
