Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapter 27 Review - Wood God Dragon Aldoron

Written by Shiggins

Another good arc has begun to sprout?

Yes, wood you believe that we're finally at the next God Dragon already? I woodn't have believed it myself, since I wood have thought that Mashima-senpai wood like to spend some more time barking up another tree for a while. But oak course we had to get to the root of our story eventually, and so here we are.

Mahogany.

Alright, I'm done with the puns. For now.

Why woodn't he look at you, Juvia? You're great!

Top 10 Bleach Girls

Written by Shiggins

I really miss Bleach.

For the longest time, Bleach was considered one of "The Big Three". It was able to stand alongside Naruto and One Piece due to it's popularity in the West, but it eventually lost favour and had an ending more rushed than the Flash's medical exam. However, I want to remember Bleach whenever I can, despite it's final chapters, so here are the top 10 female characters of the entire Bleach series. Both anime and manga, but canon only!

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 23 to 26 Review - Knock on Wood.

Written by Shiggins

From end to beginning.

A strange review this time, with half of it focusing on the end of the Mercuphobia arc, and the other half focusing on a very strange repetition (and possibly homage) to Edolas. It might feel like it's taking forever to progress, but at least we have a fun time until then, and we're getting some much-needed character development too, so can't be too upset with it.

Juvia, that umbrella is going to break.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins


The very best, like no-one ever was?

If you had asked me ten years ago what I would have wanted to see from the first ever live-action Pokemon film on the big screen, I can assure you that this isn't the answer you'd get. Justice Smith pairing up with a Pikachu voiced by Ryan Reynolds, who is also a detective. No Red or Ash, no Gym Leaders, and not even any of the famous regions that Pokemon are known to explore. What's even stranger than this however? Well... I think they made a very wise choice.

Weekly or Monthly - The Difference between Manga Releases

Written by Shiggins

Something for readers to digest.

So a friend asked me what the big difference between the two really is, and it started quite the discussion. What better reason did I need to write up an article about it, and ponder which of the two is preferable for long and short-term reading? Which is more helpful for us, the reader, and for the story itself? Does it even matter? (Yes, it actually does.)

Avengers; Endgame - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

A Marvel.

22 films, 11 years, over $4 billion spent, with a box office of $19 billion (and rising), Marvel have created the most absolutely successful movie franchise in history, by adapting all these heroes of classic comic books and bringing them to the big screen, most of them for the very first time. From Iron Man to Avengers: Endgame, I've watched every single entry, and now I'm here to review the ultimate finale. In the end, did it succeed? Did Endgame truly give us an ending worthy of wielding the Infinity Stones, the hammers, and whatever other item you could find in this film?

Note: FULL SPOILERS AHEAD! EVERYTHING IN THIS ARTICLE IS A SPOILER!

Every Marvel Cinematic Universe Villain Ranked

Written by Shiggins

Fear them, if you dare!

So obviously I had to celebrate the release of Avengers; Endgame with more than just a simple review of the movie. I considered ranking every film, but then I got the idea to rank the villains instead, from Iron Man to Endgame, and so here we are. It's a personal list, of course, so feel free to comment your own favourites down below after having a read. And because of the vast differences in time and budget, only the movie villains are on this list! So no Kingpin, Kilgrave or Cottonmouth this time, sadly.

Note: Spoilers for every MCU movie.

Shazam! - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Is the DCEU finally starting to take flight?

As you are no doubt aware, the attempts by DC to create their own ripoff incarnation of a cinematic universe hasn't been going so well. Batman vs Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League were all received disappointingly by both audiences and critics, but their individual movies have been doing great, to the point that Warner Bros are apparently focusing more on solo adventures from now on! Wonder Woman is the best female-led superhero film so far, Aquaman made over $1B, and now we have Shazam! here to see if lightning can strike twice in a row, which makes me wonder if this new suit is actually an unsubtle message...

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 19 to 22 Review - The Ignia Fanclub Edition

Written by Shiggins

Ignia is Ig-bae-a.

So I had to sacrifice a review or two because of Eden's Zero, but we got here in the end. We're past all the Diabolos stuff, and now our heroes are... still fighting Mercuphobia. Huh. Well, that's a shame, but wait! What's this? A new challenger approaches! And he might be freaking amazing!

Get used to this, until I inevitably get disappointed.

Dumbo (2019) - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins


Dumboo!

So I was working on my Fairy Tail catch-up review, when an incident occurred and I was dragged to see the newest of Disney's live-action remake plague; Dumbo. Never let it be said that I am close-minded, because I went in with some expectation and hope. It is directed by Tim Burton after all, who used to be one of my favourite directors. After this however, maybe it's best if I just start locking the door to my poor malnourished brain.

Note: Some spoilers ahead.
