Made In Abyss

Anime Review: Made In Abyss By Christopher Kinsey   There is a lot to say about this anime, and a lot has already been covered.  A lot of this hinges on what’s presented in the manga which I have not, nor have any desire to read based on the amount of sickening imagery I’ve...

Kagegurui

Kakegurui By Christopher Kinsey   When I say “Gambling anime” you probably think of a few titles.  Mostly titles by Nobuyuki Fukomoto like Akagi and Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji.  Perhaps the earlier chapters of Yu Gi Oh.  Maybe even really offbeat spectacle gambling manga like...

Castlevania

Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super by Max-Vader   I like to imagine that one day, Akira Toriyama felt the urge to thumb through Dragon Ball Z again. Upon finishing his trip down memory lane, he looked up and said to himself: “Yeah, that was pretty good. You know what, I should do more of...
