  • The Legend of Korra “Book Three: Change” Ushers in a New Era

    There’s no denying that Nickelodeon did an amazing job continuing the popular Avatar series with new characters and storylines that feel more mature than The Last Airbender trilogy. With fans anxiously anticipating the release of Book Three: Change in The Legend of Korra series, let’s go over what we know about the upcoming series (taking […]


  • Yaoi Recommendations (Part 1) – Non-explicit Series

    Welcome to our new Yaoi Recommendations series.  After having been absent from the anime and manga fandom for the better part of a decade, my desire for canon queer characters led me back to yaoi/shonen-ai and, to a lesser extent, yuri/shoujo-ai.  My current media just wasn’t cutting it so I dove back into the fandom […]


  • Bleach x 585 Review: The Headless Star 4

    Finally something happened in this week’s manga issue of Bleach! The Headless Star 4 not only had some cool fight sequences, but reinforcements arrived, and we got to know what the Quincys’ boss planned to do. It was revealed that the main antagonist summoned the huge beam of light in order to travel to the […]


  • Naruto x 681 Review: Kaguya’s Tears

    There was a lot of talking in this week’s manga issue of Naruto, which wasn’t a complete surprise. There have been a great deal of questions and Kishimoto tried to answer some of them this week, answers that some fans of the series might not like. It was obvious that Sasuke’s attack wasn’t going to […]


  • Bleach x 584 Review: The Headless Star 3

      Another week and another Bleach manga issue where nothing of importance happened; though more foes arrived for Ichigo to fight, everything ‘plot-related’ occurred in the background. I think Tite Kubo is deliberately dragging the story. Heck, I think he ‘s even stopped bothering to come up with new titles for the issues every week. […]


  • Naruto x 680 review: Once Again

    This week’s manga issue of Naruto picked up right after the previous week’s cliffhanger of Team 7 and Obito falling towards boiling lava. Once Again told a bit more about Sasuke and his motives, as well as including a nice flashback that showed Naruto’s growth as a character. Some fans predicted that Kaguya teleported everyone into another […]


  • Bleach x 583 Review: The Headless Star 2

    I am certain I’m not the only one who is getting bored with the current events in Bleach. This week’s manga was a complete filler issue. It did nothing to progress the plot and it didn’t even end with an exciting cliffhanger. When will Tite Kubo get back to the story? It’s not as if I […]


  • Naruto x 679 Review: She of the Beginning

    Just when you think things can’t get any worse, Kishimoto proves you wrong. This week’s chapter showed the defeat of the most powerful male Shinobi in the world, and the birth of the most powerful female ninja. Things are not looking good for Team 7 and I can’t wait for next week’s issue. First of all, […]


  • Bleach x 582 Review: The Headless Star

    Okay, I’m getting a bit tired of all the battles now. Where’s the story? What is even happening? I hope Tite Kubo gets back to the plot soon. Ichigo came to Kenpachi’s rescue and fighting the female Sternritters was too easy for him, which was to be expected because he’s the main character. Nothing much […]


  • Naruto x 678 Review: My Will

    This week’s manga chapter gave us a glimpse into the minds of various characters, hinted at Sasuke’s true motives, and a twist at the end made the whole thing worthwhile. The whole world was shown trapped in Madara’s genjutsu. I have to admit, people being attached to the roots of a tree, while their life […]
