My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Series Review

Can an overused plot line from manga about a girl who was obsessed with an otome game getting reincarnated inside of it as the villainess really be entertaining to watch? My Next Life as a Villainess most definitely makes a case that it isn't so much what your story is about as how much chemistry your characters have. Read the full review.

Fruits Basket: The Final Episode 1 Impressions

Having an early release of just one episode is actually kind of mean. I really wanted more Fruits Basket but I knew that this was just a one off and I was going to have to wait for April for more and yet when it popped up on AnimeLab I couldn't help but press play. So, how does the final season begin?

Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You A Wizard?! Series Review

You've probably picked up already that this one isn't actually an anime. I know, weird that I actually watched something that wasn't animated or made in the 90's. Anyway I came across Cherry Magic while scrolling through Crunchyroll releases and decided I was in the mood for something a bit different but didn't expect much. So, what did I get?

Given Anime Series Review

I had the joy of reviewing this one each week with Irina and I know that it was a definite highlight of the Summer anime season. Given is a low key boys love anime with two adorable dorks at its centre.

Given Movie Review

If you've followed my blog long you'll know I absolutely adored the 2019 series of Given and asked for more. Well, they've delivered a 59 minute movie follow up. While not quite a second season, this is one follow up I didn't intend to miss.

Fruits Basket Season 2 Series Review

I went into season 2 of Fruits Basket being warned not to set my expectations too high. That was probably a good thing but to be honest there's a lot to love in this follow up season that the original anime series never got.

Watch or Drop? Horimiya Anime

With the Winter 2021 Anime Season passing the half-way mark I decided it was time to start checking out what was on offer and planning which shows I was going to watch and review at the end of the season. While it isn't the best way to select anime, I decided to go with the 3 episode test before determining whether an anime was being added to my watch list or dropped for good. This method isn't being used for sequels given I'm largely just deciding whether I'll watch them based on whether I liked the previous series (so Attack on Titan: Final Season is going to be reviewed but I won't be doing a taste test). Today I'm giving my first impressions of Horimiya.
