    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…

    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…

    Will you survive?

    You look around…you start to think…where has everyone gone? How did I get here? Just moments ago you where confident that you could survive this…now you find yourself laying on the ground covered in mud, hoping that they cannot see you…but you can hear them… They start to get closer to you… You dare not move… Moreover, you cannot breathe for fear of them finding you…but they’re close now… so very… close. A foot lands right next to your head! Do not move! You keep telling yourself, just don’t move. After what seems like forever, the footsteps start to move away, further and further away. Finally there is silence, and…
