GAMES // REVIEW SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR WII U Super Smash Bros for Wii U has arrived, not only trumping the 3DS version in every regard, but also proving itself to be the pinnacle of the series as a whole.
ASIAN FILM // REVIEW LESSON OF EVIL Make no mistake about it – Lesson of Evil is Takashi Miike’s most malevolent movie since Audition back in 1999.

ASIAN FILM // REVIEW EDGE OF TOMORROW The past summer has seen Hollywood produce two big tent-pole movies based on Japanese properties.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW FROM THE NEW WORLD - PART 2 From the New World’s conclusion gets many things right, and many wrong as well. But if you were intrigued and surprised by volume one, it’s well worth going the distance.

ASIAN FILM // REVIEW THE SWORD IDENTITY The problem with a 12-rated, and thus deliberately ‘softcore’, martial arts swashbuckler is, well, the inevitable lack of viciously exciting set pieces, and arterial geysers.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW DEVIL SURVIVOR 2: THE ANIMATION Based on the DS game of the same name by Atlus studios, Devil Survivor 2 is a cousin to the more well-known Persona series.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW THE WIND RISES The first news about Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises, before we knew its name, was the fact that it would be an ‘autobiography.’
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW PATEMA INVERTED Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s independently produced feature film is an ambitious piece of science fiction that works wonders with using different perspectives to look at the world that Patema and Age share.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW GARGANTIA ON THE VERDUROUS PLANET Produced by Production IG, directed by Kazuya Murata and written by Gen Urobuchi, Gargantia... arrives backed by some heavyweight anime names. It certainly gets off to a spectacular start.
ASIAN FILM // NEWS THE GRANDMASTER Released in Hong Kong after many delays in January 2013, Wong Kar-Wai’s The Grandmaster stars Tony Leung as the near-mythical Wing Chun master Ip Man
ANIME & MANGA // NEWS THE DEVIL IS A PART-TIMER Naoto Hosoda’s fantasy-comedy The Devil Is A Part-Timer takes the standard anime cliché of putting an ordinary character in an extraordinary world and flips it upside-down.
ASIAN FILM // NEWS RUROUNI KENSHIN 2: KYOTO INFERNO When Keishi Otomo’s big screen adaptation of Nobuhiro Watsuki’s manga Rurouni Kenshin was a smash hit in 2012, Warner Entertainment Japan decided to build on the film’s success with a mammoth two-part sequel.

ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW TORADORA! Toradora! is a story we’ve seen done over and again in anime, but rarely with such timing, energy and fun.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW TALES OF XILLIA 2 Just like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, the Tales series is something that we strongly suspect will go on forever.
ANIME & MANGA // REVIEW ATTACK ON TITAN PART 1: EPISODES 1-13 The anime adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s best-selling manga might well be the most eagerly anticipated release of 2014 here in the UK.
