Millennium Actress Movie Review

I stated in my Tokyo Godfathers review that it was the “best anime movie I’ve seen since Ghost in the Shell“.

Destiny Lovers and The Elder Sister-Like One First Impressions (Volumes 1-3 of Both)

Destiny Lovers I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been on a kick with very… scandalous manga lately.

Well, the mangaka of Erased isContinue reading “For the Kid I Saw in My Dreams First Impressions (Volumes 1-3)”

Lockwood & Co. Full Series Review

The U.K. has had a history of really popular writers: From William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens all the way through to the late, great Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. So, is it any surprise that also-English Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series is fan-freakin’-tastic in every way? It was a surprise for me, actually. IContinue reading “Lockwood & Co.
