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 ...

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' ...

Nisemonogatari - a touch too comedic

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 ...
