  • Summer 2014: Final Thoughts

    We’ve seen the end of summer, and with it, many shows completed, there’s only one show still airing through fall and I will continue to follow it. But for the shows that are finished, let me wrap up my thoughts on the end of the summer season before I plunge into the newly airing fall […]



  • The Legend of Korra 4×3 Review: “The Coronation”

    This week’s episode of The Legend of Korra Book 4: Balance laid the ground work for the political conflicts that will play a major part in the overarching story. There wasn’t enough of Korra in it but the episode was still very enjoyable. The premiere episode of Book 4: Balance shone light on the antagonist […]


  • Naruto x 696 Review: Naruto and Sasuke (III)

    This week’s chapter of Naruto continued the battle between the yellow-haired protagonist and the antagonist, Sasuke. We also got to know a bit more about Sasuke’s plan for controlling the world. I was expecting this week’s chapter to be Naruto and Sasuke talking it out because of the events of Naruto 695. However, I was glad that […]


  • The Legend of Korra 4×2 Review: Korra Alone

    I was not expecting to the see the events that unfolded in this week’s episode of The Legend of Korra this soon into Book 4: Balance. I thought the writers were going to hold off the character reveal until mid-season. But I’m glad they didn’t because it made the current book more enjoyable for me. The […]


  • Naruto x 695 Review: Naruto and Sasuke (II)

    This week’s chapter of Naruto felt like a big letdown. I know it was supposed to show the much-anticipated battle between Sasuke and Naruto, but even the fight sequence didn’t look impressive. With only four more chapters left, does Kishimoto even care what fans think anymore? Trigger warning for abusive relationships Last week’s chapter ended […]


  • Naruto Manga ending in five weeks!

    The announcement has been made, Naruto fans. The long-running manga about the little ninja boy is going to end in just five weeks! The manga debuted way back in 1999, and it will see the release of its final chapter this November. I got to know about Naruto in 2005 and since then I haven’t […]


  • Back Stage!! (Manga) Review: Chapter 0

    The Back Stage!! novels have been going for quite some time, but the manga just released the first “chapter” (more of a prologue, really) this week.  It’s already off to an extremely promising start.  The manga starts 9 months after the Love Stage!! manga currently left off, but manages to not spoil much about what’s to […]


  • The Legend of Korra 4×1 Review: After All These Years

    It has begun Avatar fans, the final book in The Legend of Korra series is here. I’ve got conflicted feelings right now. A part of me wants to see Korra’s story get some closure, while the other part wants the series to go on for another two or three years. I need my Avatar fix! The last […]


  • Naruto x 694 Review: Naruto and Sasuke (1)

    If you read the previous chapter, then you’ll know this week’s issue is about Sasuke telling about his definition of Hokage to Naruto. Kishimoto did a good job conveying Sasuke’s answer and I enjoyed the little conversation they had. It was revealed that the reason Sasuke wanted to bring a revolution in the Ninja World was […]
