In the fourth part of the prequal series I will look into Magia Records which is a side story to the renowned Madoka series. While not quite as good as its main story counterpart Magia Records was still a fairly enjoyable watch. What is more this series has the potential for its second season to eclipse the opener as most of the character exposition and backstory has been covered. Review: Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story also known as Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo...
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S Kobayashi Dragon Maid continues to go from strength to strength as the last two epi’s were actually stronger than the first two. What is more with this being a slice-of-life/comedy series you can watch the episodes in any order. If you are a fan of Kanna, Saikawa or just maids in general then look no further than episode three because this episode is a showcase in how cute Kanna and Saikawa can be PLUS it is a brings to life the awesomeness of maids! The...
In this part of my preliminary reviews, I will be revisiting the anime I reviewed in part 1 of this series. Just to recap the anime I will be looking at are: Vanitas No Carte, All Routes Lead to Doom, The Detective Is Already Dead, Re-Main and Remake Our Life. Since I would have covered four episodes of each show this is the stage when I make a decision on whether a series should be dropped or kept. Anything that is five or below risks the chop. Vanitas No Carte The thing that is beginning...
In the third part of the prequel series I will cover the latest completed season of Slime Reincarnation. I actually found season two to be better than the first so if you have already watched season one then I highly recommend you watch this. Review Season two of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is an action/fantasy isekai series that was initially released in the Winter of 2021 season. It kicks off just where the first season ended. If you have not seen season one then you must...
Vinland Saga season two It has been confirmed that season two of Vinland Saga will be released! To be honest I wasn't too surprised to get this announcement but nonetheless it was a relief to hear this news seeing as some great series never get sequels. It is still early days so there is no news about when it will be released exactly so gotta keep our eyes peeled for that tidbit of news. If you hear anything though please drop a post! If you are not familiar with Vinland Saga it is a war...
The second of show of this prequel series will be the most anticipated series for the summer 2021 season. Season one of Slime Reincarnation was actually pretty good but I felt the first part of season two was actually stronger. Stayed tuned for part 3 when I look at that! Review: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime otherwise known as Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken is a fantasy/action based isekai series which was first released in the Autumn of 2018. This show has also spawned a...
The third part of my preliminary reviews contains what is perhaps the strongest line-up of anime series. We get the supernatural/mystery series Sonny Boy that is worth a go if you are after something different. Then there is Slime Reincarnation which is the most anticipated series of the summer. I also take a peek at Higurashi SOTSU and Scarlet Nexus going into both series blind to see if they are any good. Finally, I see how Night Head 2041; the remake to the 2006 anime Night Head Genesis...
In this mini-series I will be looking at the prequel seasons of currently airing anime. Most of them are pretty good actually so it worth giving them a go but if you want to get the lowdown then read the reviews I will be posting. I will start with Kobayashi seeing as it was one of the most anticipated series this season. Enjoy! Review: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid otherwise known as Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is a slice-of-life, comedy, fantasy series. The first season originally...

In the second part of my preliminary reviews, I will be checking the popular and highly anticipated Kobayashi-san series along with Peach Boy Riverside. If you are after slice-of-life then I suggest you give Aquatope on White Sand a go. If moe is more your thing then look no further than Making a Drugstore in Another World. Finally, Meikyuu Black Company delivers a pretty unique take on the isekai genre. Beware the anti-hero that lurks within! Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S Oh boy...
Hold on to your shirts because we got a whole load of anime this season! Being swamped for series can be a drag that is why I will be offering my initial insights after watching the opening two episodes. Hopefully my comments will help in deciding what series is worth watching and what can be skipped. I will also add accompanying trailers to give a better idea on what these shows are all about. Due to the number of anime present I will be breaking this into multiple parts. Happy hunting...
The Honor Student at Magic HI-school (2021) & Visitor arc (2020), after 6 years! with ep’1 as prequel to S1, the Miyuki spinoff Is more shōjo than battle’shōnen ;)
Night Head 2041, a Cyberpunk retelling of the anime (2006) and Dorama (1992) felt the’original one was unfinished, so I hope this ones serves as Its sequel too :)
Demon Slayer Infinity Train Movie They say Monday 19th July aka Freedom Day is the great big day in England but there is an even bigger day that should be pencilled into your diaries. That day is the 26th July cause in the UK the Kimetsu no Yaiba movie aka Demon Slayer becomes available through legit channels. On the 26th you can watch the movie in Microsoft store, Playstation store (assuming Sony doesn't leak it early again), Google pay, Amazon and Sky. A recap for those unfamiliar, Demon...
Review Wonder Egg Priority is a psychological, drama series animated by the studio Cloverworks. The main series originally aired in the winter season of 2021 with episode 13 being a 45-minute special episode released early in the summer season of 2021. For the purposes of this review, I will be covering both the main series and the special episode. Wonder Egg comes out the blocks blazing with the opening episode being a rollercoaster of emotion. The episode initially starts on a sombre...
Season necromendations: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2, Part 2 & Diaries lately is rare that Isekai animes have 40+ ep, more If this gets finished (a few) :o
With the announcement that Fie Clausell would return in the latest Kiseki game for the Legend of Heroes franchise I thought it was an opportune time to make a bio list of the main characters for this upcoming game. All my information comes from the official Kuro no Kiseki website. Be warned it is in Japanese so I have used Google translate to get the contents in English then made further edits as a lot of the sentences were rather wonky. If you are blessed with the ability to read Japanese...
LL! Superstar!! (2021) & Nijigasaki hi’school idol club (2020), Still guilty pleasure I really doubt sunshine will, specially seeing last one (dōkōkai) didn’t get a S2 -_-
Searching for a good anime series can be a difficult thing to do especially when you are busy or otherwise strapped for time. That is why I have complied this list to show what is hot and what is not so you don't have to faff around watching rubbish and only strike for the series that are worth watching! To make things easier, I have ranked all the anime titles I have seen this season from best to worst hoping that one (or more) of these series will take your fancy! I will note there are a...
Review Super Cub is a slice-of-life, school series which was animated by Studio Kai. Super Cub stars Koguma as the main character who is a girl with no parents, no friends, no hobbies and no future goals and is struggling to find her way through life. The backdrop sounds deary even depressing so are we going to experience a sombre experience similar to Welcome to the NHK or No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Unpopular!? Not really. Whilst the imagery and tone in the...
