It’s (a reasonably late look at) the return of One Punch Man, a series parodying Shonen action shows that really took off a few years ago thanks to its sense of humour and frankly jaw-dropping animation. Season 2 continues… the humour, though some of it is getting old, but drops the ball with a new animation studio. Is it still worth a watch though?
My review of the Blu-Ray release of My Hero Academia Season 3 Part 2 is now up on Anime UK News and can be view by clicking HERE.
As I’ve said before, this is a series I’m looking forward to diving deeper into on this blog down the line…
My review of the second MSG Thunderbolt movie, Bandit Flower, is now up on Anime UK News and can viewed by clicking HERE. Again, some time down the line I’ll do a more detailed review here on the blog, but this gives you my overall thoughts for now!
The last of the “classic” Universal Century OVAs, Stardust Memory takes place in between the original series and Zeta Gundam, doing an unnecessarily long and twisty version of events that led to the formation of the Titans group so prominently featured in the latter series. It also features a very interesting villain and a fun, if not always likeable, protagonist to face off against him. Let’s take a good look at this 13-Episode series…
Despite best efforts and some reluctance, I’ve ended up covering Boruto for Anime UK News, following on from my coverage of Naruto for the site…. *sigh*, ah well, once more unto the breach!… or maybe something less dramatic.
In other words, my review of the first set can be found by clicking HERE. Enjoy!
Have you been wondering why I haven’t been posting game reviews, specifically modern game reviews, recently? Well, I thought I’d finally give the Super Robot Wars series a proper go and imported the English language Asia version of the first PS4 game, V (as in the letter, not the roman numeral for five…) The little “that would be fun” idea ended up absorbing nearly three months of my gaming time… Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every second of it, and have already made plans to import the next in the series when the gaming world goes quiet again, but yeah… this was a marathon rather than a sprint, that’s for sure! Let’s take a look…
We’re nearly reaching the end of Naruto Shippuden’s slow… slow “box set” releases! My review of Set 37 can be found HERE.
I was warned that the Amazon Lily arc of One Piece was… not very good, to put it mildly. I assumed it would just be a silly jokey thing sandwiched in between an arc with a darker ending, and two arcs that are also far more dramatic to come, and I was right for the most part, it’s just the silly jokes turned out to be old-fashioned and really not very funny. The best compliment I can give it is that it’s mercifully short! So let’s have a look…
My review of the dubbed only release of Lupin the 3rd Part IV for Anime UK News can be found HERE. A fun time, even if dubbed isn’t often my method of choice.
I uncharacteristically spent a little extra money on importing the latest entry into the Universal Century Gundam timeline, Narrative having English subtitles and a dub on the Japanese blu-ray disc. Why not, right? So what’s it like? It’s a bit short of time for character development beyond the lead trio, but I did really enjoy it, and it filled in a plothole that Unicorn created very neatly, so now we can move on to Hathaway’s Flash without wondering why everyone isn’t using crazy Psycho-Frame Gundams… Let’s have a look!
