It’s fair to say I didn’t come away from The Gymnastics Samurai feeling inspired by feats of physical mastery.

Akudama Drive episode 1 anime review

An edgy, Western-media inspired “all villains” story that is as fun and violent as it is vapid.

Jujutsu Kaisen episode 1 anime review: an electrifying introduction

Like Parasyte and Devilman before it (and I suppose you could even lump Naruto in here too), Jujutsu Kaisen is the story of a boy losing control of his own body.

Deca-Dence episode 1 – 5 anime review

Deca-Dence is an anime of dueling aesthetics: a gritty human world akin to Attack on Titan being bossed by a society of walking toys. Sounds weird? Well, that’s why I’m watching it!

My anime diary: A Place Further than the Universe & Smile Down the Runway

I suppose I’m not the only one turning to the comfort of their anime backlog right now? I don’t feel like I have much patience at the moment and would much rather digest a finished story than be left hanging by one that’s still on-going.

Anyway, I figured I’d watch Smile Down the Runway since it seemed like a series with good reviews that I’d overlooked in the Winter season, whilst A Place Further than the Universe, one of the most beloved anime of the past few years, needs no introduction. Why did I wait so long to watch it? I suppose I needed to be in the right mood, and 2020 is definitely that!

Here’s my brief thoughts.

Listeners episode 1 anime review

Listeners is a welcome return to the imagination of writer Dai Sato. Just like his Eureka Seven, Listeners is an adventure in a desperate post-disaster world, a world set to be remade by the triple threat of music, love and giant robots!

The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED episode 1 anime review

A fun and satisfying debut that feels in many ways like a throwback to late Nineties anime like The Big O and Cowboy Bebop, albeit with a less masculine and more homoerotic subtext for the Noughties.
