Yona of the Dawn (Part One) - Legend of the Crimson Princess

Advantages: Strong female lead. Well-animated fantasy themed action.
Disadvantages: The Blu Ray pack is expensive. Some of the later episodes get a bit silly.

Yona, the sixteen year old protagonist of Akatsuki no Yona, is the only daughter of Kouka Kingdom's peace loving monarch. Blessed (or should that be cursed) with a head of ginger locks, she lives a pampered life at the palace where she spends her days swo ...

Disadvantages: Nada

So despite the delay in writing the review of the first 11 episodes here you are, lickety-split, onto the final 11 episodes I know, sudden efficiency shocker! That should do a poor newspaper headline. Must admit I was looking forward to the final ...

Michiko & Hatchin - The Quest For Child Support

Akame Ga Kill (Collection 2) - So Much Death

Advantages: Non-stop Shonen action. Funny at times.
