Samurai Flamenco (Part 1) - Beware Umbrella Thieves!

Advantages: The first seven epiosdes will appeal to Kick-Ass fans. Rather funny.
Disadvantages: Episode eleven is too silly for my taste. Artwork dips in quality at times.

Samurai Flamenco is a superhero show, which is rather ironic because much like a costumed vigilante the series could be accused of having dual identities. Comic book fans have often speculated whether the real Bruce Wayne is a billionaire playboy or the s ...

Gonna Be The Twin-Tail: Power Rangers with Pigtails

Advantages: So silly that it's funny. Decent super sentai styled action sequences.
Disadvantages: Expensive for a single cour series. Generic characters. Uninteresting villains.

What is your favourite type of hairstyle? Do you think Afros are awesome? Perhaps you believe that Bob Cuts are the bee's knees? In the world of anime and manga Twin-tails (better known as Pigtails on this side of the pond) reign supreme. It's the coiffur ...

Mirai Nikki (Collection Two) - Worth the Five Month Wait

Advantages: Lots of cool twists. Contains a nice mix of gore and comedy.
Disadvantages: Some fans may dislike the ending. Is a bit too whacky in parts.

After a five-month wait the battle royale between deity candidates, who own cell phones that can predict the future, has finally resumed - let's hope that in the interim they didn't replace their soothsaying mobiles with newer models! Seriously Kaze, can' ...

Mirai Nikki - Dear Diary, Today I Dated a Murderous Stalker

Advantages: Suspenseful paranormal narrative. Dark and twisted romance/comedy.
Disadvantages: Violent content. The concluding chapter is months away from release.

Fourteen-year-old Yuki Amano is a hermit in the making. Rather than interact with others, the unsociable middle school student prefers to observe life and jot down anything notable on his mobile phone journal. Crikey, what a masochist. Who would want to c ...

Love, Election and Chocolate - Referendum on Romance and Yorkies

Advantages: Nice mix of comedy, romance and drama. More fun than the US election.
Disadvantages: Starts off a bit slow. The OVA episode is a rather silly.

...Howdy faithful readers. Today I shall be reviewing love, election and chocolate. After much deliberation I have decided to award love and chocolate an A plus, because who doesn't enjoy a bit of romance and a calorie rich Mars bar? Politics are dull howeve ...
