    Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

    Hello all! Sorry I’ve been personally quiet on the review front, it’s personally been a very busy month! That said, I did manage to get in the much anticipated Season 2 (3?) of Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix. This is an anime that I started watching some time ago now, watching season 1 shortly after it became available on Netflix. Like with most Anime, the gap between seasons was long, and the way Netflix labels the seasons is…odd. Season 2 on Netflix is more of a trailer for Season 3, which is the real Season 2…not quite as confusing as Final Fantasy titles, but it’s getting there! So, Seven Deadly…

    Horror; God’s left hand Devil’s right hand… What am I reading!?.

    Still riding on the coat tails of the writer… Kazuo Umezu. See the following Reviews. Fourteen and My Name is Shingo. As you know in the last couple of weeks I have been reading some of this guy’s work and have been taken in by the oddness of his mind. This week we have God’s left hand Devil’s right hand. This is based around family of 4 and the main characters are the 2 younger children. One day odd things start to happen and the younger girl “Izumi” find herself in the possession of some old scissors and the younger boy “Sou” gains an unknown power. They all written like…

    My name Is Shingo… What am I reading!?

    Well once again, I have delved into the heart of. What the heck is this? Today we have: My name Is Shingo…  “Watashi wa Shingo” The story is about an assembly line robot that acquires consciousness… and then goes on a journey of discovery looking for its parents… I kid you not… from the same writers as the amazingly bad/good Fourteen. Umezu Kazuo. “Reviewed here” The story starts off as a love story around two children Marine “Girl” and Satoru “Boy” that meet on the off chance one day and then form a deep connection with each other. Satoru’s father works on an assembly line constructing small motors. But as…

    Merman in my Tub Review

    Volumes: 8 and ongoing. Publisher: Seven Seas Many of you may already be familiar with “Monster Girl” anime/manga. Well, this easily falls into the genre of “Monster Boy”. Many of you might be familiar with titles such as “Rosario and Vampire”. But all the characters are handsome anthropomorphic sea-creatures. Ranging from an octopus, a shark, a jellyfish, a clown-fish, even a tiny hermit crab. This is a four-panel style manga that does exactly what it says on the tin. It runs in short isolated chapters of slice-of-life sitcom adventures of high school student, Tatsumi, and his handsome free-loading roommate, Wakasa the merman. Every so often, Wakasa’s fellow fish friends will…

    Fourteen manga review. What am I reading!?

    Well, where to start really… I have been reading manga for many years and in that time I have seen some truly terrible ones. Then we have Fourteen by Kazuo Umezu … this manga has a place in the terrible hall of fame for me personally. The art style is pretty bad, at times it almost like a team of children put this together but didn’t talk to themselves on what they were doing… Let’s point out that this is listed as a horror manga… I’m not sure how they decided that but for me, it currently falls in the category of, “What the hell am I reading” and “my…

    Rebby, My Toko 2018 Review.

    Tokonatsu 2018 for me was a big eye opener. It was the first time I’d been fully involved with the Toko-R pre-Festival process. I learned how dedicated they are and how much time, effort and planning goes into conceptualising, creating and running the awesome events they put on! In the weeks and months running up to the event, there were regular meetings and ongoing discussions to agree on the best way to achieve what they had planned. Alongside that is all of this… the content you’re reading now. It’s important for us to share the anticipation we feel ahead of the event and the genuine excitement that builds in each…

    My Tokonatsu 2018 Highlights

    July 31st Wednesday The annual tradition of my Tokonatsu adventure always begins with packing the essentials. Over the years I have learned to travel light. Keeping your checklist short, lessens the chance to forget something important. Next, I get myself over to my fellow con-goers house and spend the night to ensure we are all together for take-off in the morning. August 1st Thursday Might sound odd, but the three-hour car journey going to Tokonastu is one of my favourite parts of this annual tradition. I am tucked up in the backseat alongside the mass of luggage and cosplay with a tub of haribo and or my brother’s homemade beef…

    Toko-R’s Best bits of 2018 – Rezal

    Well, it’s been quite a bit longer than I expected between posts, but life happens sometimes! This week, continuing our series on Tokonatsu Highlights, I’ll be going over my best bits, and what I loved! Werewolf Ultimate For me personally, the highlight of the weekend was getting to play Werewolf Ultimate, run by our Chairman Myst! For those unfamiliar, as I was, it’s similar to Resistance, in so far that you have two teams one of good guys, and one of bad. None of the good know who the bad are, but all of the bad know each other. Each day, a vote is passed to declare one villager as…
