The White Cat’s Revenge as Plotted from the Dragon King’s Lap Vol 1 Review

Here we have yet another one of those long-winded, but attention-grabbing, light novel titles!

The Witch and the Beast Vol 1 Review

A dark-fantasy manga tinged with elements of horror, Kousuke Satake’s The Witch and the Beast intrigued me, in large part due to it’s beautiful and atmospheric-looking cover art. Satake’s detailed artwork didn’t disappoint and is just as lovely inside the book, but I found the story to be a bit lacking. Synopsis: Guideau and Ashaf... Continue Reading →

Sazan & Comet Girl Review

Sazan & Comet Girl, by Yuriko Akase, is an action-packed space-opera that features vibrant, full-colour artwork and a diverting story that feels like it was plucked out of a bygone era.
