My Hero Academia Is Back for Season 4!

The astute among you, or at least those who read this site regularly, will know I’m a bit of an anime nerd. I love a good anime series; some of the emotions you get, some of the stories, the intensity, ooh it gets me going! Naturally then, I quickly heard that Boku no Hero Academia, or My Hero Academia, has returned for season 4 on Crunchyroll. If you’ve never seen the superhero themed series before, then read on, for this series is truly a blast! Even if you’re not an anime fan, I reckon you’d get a kick out of this series – It’s truly phenomenal!

Plus Ultra!

Anime Review: Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!

Magical girl anime is, admittedly, not something I’m hugely accustomed to. I saw a bit of Sailor Moon growing up and never really saw any more of the genre. So then when I was told that there was an anime by the name of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, I laughed. I thought it was a brilliant name, albeit a little bit on the nose. So I looked it up, found that it was completely available on Crunchyroll and went “yeah, I guess I can give this a watch”. After all, what good is the magical girl genre, if we can’t get a magical boy anime?

Anime Review: Attack on Titan

When humanity is hunted, it’s time to fight back. Living within Walls, humans live a bleak life, living off rations, whilst the Titans come swaming in, feasting on humans – All whilst not needing to eat them to survive. A cruel, bleak world, with a really interesting overall premise, Attack on Titan is a gritty, brutal series filled with interesting characters. It’s been around for a while, but I’ve recently been checking it out for the first time on Crunchyroll.

AmeChibi 2020

A New AmeCon Approaches

On Saturday at around 8:30pm BST, it was announced that AmeChibi would be making its return next year. Fans of Kitacon and AmeCon didn’t get an event this year, but for good reason. Kitacon is currently undergoing major changes, with a lot of the committee changing and AmeCon did an event last year. The usual venue of Warwick University is also undergoing changes, as the venue is currently in the middle of a lot of construction work. Therefore, the only logical conclusion was that 2019 would have no convention from either event. Nevertheless, AmeChibi have announce that they are back. Here’s the information we currently know about the upcoming event.

Anime Review: Dr. STONE

A world in which civilisation needs to be restored? That sounds exhilarating! But what would it take to rebuild from nothing? Would it require genius? How about brawn? No, it’d require both. Fortunately, Senku and Taiju are a genius and braun team when they’re combined. As such, they take to the task to try and free people who have been encased in stone, but how successful will they be in their endeavours?

Video Game Review: Doki Doki Literature Club

When I first picked up Doki Doki Literature Club, I knew the sort of wild ride I was going to get into, thanks to the surge of popularity the game enjoyed on release. I played this a while back, so coming back to it now to review feels almost nostalgic. I noticed I somehow never reviewed the title back then and I wanted to at least review it once, especially now the hype is done. After all, there are still recommended videos on my YouTube feed, all to do with this seemingly innocuous title. So what makes Doki Doki Literature Club so good?

Time To Watch: Naruto (Season 2 complete)

Okay, I’m not going to lie, I set out to watch maybe half the episodes. I ended up binge watching this whole season in under two weeks. Again, I’m a slow watcher, take it easy on me, would you? Nevertheless, this has been an excellent season which shows a lot about the characters. Most of this season revolves around two parts of the exam, one part being a survival experience and the second part being a sort of tournament. The Chunin exam section is pretty much complete and yes, as I mentioned, I’m going to watch this whole damn series, no matter how big it is. So, here are my thoughts of season 2 of Naruto.
