Mob Psycho 100 (Live Action Mini-Series)

- November 22nd, 2019 |

The live-action adaptation of Mob Psycho 100 manages not to take itself too seriously, and that’s it’s strong point. The quirky interactions, along with exaggerated speech and physical movements, make you feel like you’re watching an anime acted out by people. The series has its flaws, but with the right mix of action, drama, and […]

- November 12th, 2019 |

On November 5th, the Dragonball Z 30th anniversary collector’s edition Blu-ray box set arrived on my doorstep.

Wu-Tang: An American Saga (Season 1)

- October 26th, 2019 |

Wu-Tang: An American Saga is a gritty, though dramatized look at overcoming a hellish world to find success.
