The King of Fighters XIV manga adaptation continues to show the same pattern of “two chapters of fighting, interlude, two chapters of fighting” that the previous volumes have, but also continues to heavily feature the NESTS organisation, which gives it many bonus points in my eyes. Let’s see how it continues on, shall we! Erm… BURN TO FIGHT! I guess? (that’s the pre-fight phrase, for some reason…)Continue reading
Now the Dragon Ball Super anime has stopped airing it has been through the Manga that we have followed the further Toriyama-penned (though not drawn) antics of Goku and co. The latest arc has come to a close, focusing on a powerful magic-user from 10 million years ago returning named Moro, so I thought I’d have a look at it! I would review manga volumes, but this arc awkwardly starts halfway through Volume 10 and I’m NOT reviewing the Universe Survival arc for a third time any time soon, so I thought it would be easier to just count the Chapters instead, especially as I’m following the monthly chapters anyway… So let’s take a look!Continue reading
I know I only just covered the end of the first arc of Bleach, but here’s the second volume of the Light Novel series set after the final arc! That’s reviewing for you… Anyway! You read my review HERE. It’s a lengthy tome, especially for something called a “Light Novel”, but there you go…
I told you I’d get round to Volume 3 quickly! Admittedly I also read it quickly given again it’s only five chapters and very little in the way of dialogue. Does that make it a bad thing? No, but again only if you’re a fan of the KOF franchise, perhaps even more in this volume as it makes mention of the NESTS organisation from KOF 99-01. Interested? Then read on!Continue reading
I reviewed the first volume of this Manga for Anime UK News (viewable HERE!) but then time passed and volumes released and that was that… until I brought Volume 2 on a whim, remembering how much I enjoyed the first one. Now too late to put a review up there (as Volume 3 has been out for a while…) I thought I’d continue the coverage here. Is a manga focused on a fighting game full of great, intricate storylines and characters? No… Is it full of stunning artwork and call backs to the game? Why yes, yes it is!Continue reading
That headline’s a mouthful! Anyway, I really enjoyed this manga, admittedly I’m a big fan of the game series, so that should be a big surprise. My thoughts can be read HERE.
It’s funny how I’ve reviewed a CG net series, a crossover game and now a manga, but I’ve yet to actually review a KOF game… Well, that’ll change when I get round to the KOF movie in the Game to Film marathon, I guess!
My review of The Transformers – The Manga Vol. 1 can be found by clicking HERE! It definitely falls into the so bad it’s good department!
First off, my review of Samurai 8’s first manga volume is available HERE. I … didn’t like it. At all. Bollocks.
ALSO: With all that’s going on in the world, I thought I’d just confirm that as of this moment my life is proceeding as usual, though given I work in a Library right in the centre of town, I wouldn’t be surprised if it closed in a few days. The only really knock on effect of the Corona Virus outbreak is that I’m delaying the last four Bond Film reviews until October, assuming No Time To Die sticks to November 2020 as a release date, all because, damn it, the Bond film marathon was supposed to lead up to the new film, so… third time’s the charm?!
Stay safe everyone!
My review of the latest volume (to hit the UK) of Dragon Ball Super is up on Anime UK News and can be viewed by clicking HERE. Some interesting differences between the anime and manga that’s always fun to take a look at…
This is a bit of an oddity, a collection of four short stories set in the GITS universe, but written and illustrated by Western writers and artists. Glad I ended up reviewing it HERE for Anime UK News though, as I quite enjoyed it overall! That’s the last AUKN review for this year, as well… an odd, but fun, note to end on.
