The King’s Beast Vol 1 Review

Rei Toma is a mangaka whose works I’ve all loved and I've been really looking forward to her newest series, The King’s Beast, which is set in the same world as Dawn of the Arcana - though on a different continent, so you don’t need to have read that series to jump into this one....

Angels of Death Vol 1 Review

I’m a huge wuss when it comes to horror and, as such, it's not a genre that I tend to dip my toes into very often. While there are a few horror series that I do enjoy, I usually don’t go out of my way to seek them out and probably wouldn’t have picked up... Continue Reading →
