Review: Sonny Boy is a mystery/supernatural series which first aired in the summer 2021. Reviewing this show is actually quite tricky as this is a series that has proved divisive in the anime community. On the one hand there are clear fans who love the symbolism and vibrant imagery that permeates this series. On the opposite end there are others who believe this show is more a case of style over substance. Personally, I lean but I am not in complete agreement, with the latter but wanted to...
After the huge success of the Demon Slayer movie it is only natural to think of how the original season was. In the case of Demon Slayer, it was a series I thoroughly enjoyed. Animation is top notch and the story told captivating with charming characters to boot. At its heart it is a shounen show so whilst I consider this one a classic I also know that it won't appeal to all due to its shounen based roots. Review: Demon Slayer otherwise known as Kimetsu no Yaiba is a shounen, action...

Review: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime season two part two is an action/fantasy isekai series that aired in the summer 2021 season. Unsurprisingly events in this second part follow straight from part one so naturally this season is not newcomer friendly. You got to watch the previous seasons otherwise you won’t understand a thing that is going on. Saying that, due to the nature of its start, picking up this second part is easy if you haven’t seen part one in a while as there is a...
Review: Remake our Life! Also known as Bokutachi no Remake is a time-travel romantic/drama anime series that was first released in the summer 2021. The premise of the show centres on Kyouya Hashiba; a 28-year-old office worker who is major fan of the “Platinum Generation” which is a group of highly talented artists. His admiration for the group is tainted with a hint of envy and it is this envy that makes him regret his decision in pursuing a traditional university degree instead of...
Strictly speaking Night Head Genesis is not a prequel as Night Head 2041 seems closer to a reboot than a sequel. At least from that is the vibe I get from seeing the beginning of Night Head 2041. As for the show itself, Night Head Genesis manages to combine sci-fi with the supernatural and is generally an intriguing tale that is hampered by its slow pacing. Don't worry though this series is not required viewing in understanding Night Head 2041 so you can give this a miss and jump straight...
When They Cry - Gou is an anime of two halves. The first 13 episodes of this show are devoted to the retelling of events from the original When They Cry series whilst the final 11 episodes take the franchise into new directions! Beware that this season has no conclusion and if you wish to see the ending then you will need to view the Sotsu sequel. As always, this is not for the faint of heart plus I will add this will not be enjoyable for those who enjoy mystery series. Review...

Review: Peach Boy Riverside is a fantasy/action series that was released in the summer 2021 season. One of the more controversial aspects of this series is the order in which the episodes were broadcast. Unlike most shows, Peach Boy Riverside was not released in chronological order. Instead, the director opted to release in a non-linear format. Now changing the order is not necessarily a bad thing as it can work in mystery/episodic type series however in the case of Peach Boy Riverside I...

In this prequel watch I will delve into All Routes Lead to Doom! It is a comedy series which adds an interesting twist to the harem/reverse harem genre.
