Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 47 Review - The Tyrannic Sticky Dragon

Written by Shiggins

Crazy for coocoo.

As I take a break from my catch-up of Eden's Zero, my attention turns to Fairy Tail once again. And no, the result was not a giant spider of death. What we instead got was a very strong and brutal series that reminds me just how hard Hiro Mashima can get when he's basically got no restraints. It makes me wonder how he'd do without any rules whatsoever. For some reason, I'm picturing a Mashima-style Berserk...

I would make a joke about the internet going on fire over this, but Smash Bros had a reveal today so that job is already done.

First Impressions - Winter 2020

Written by Shiggins

It's cold outside. So stay in and watch anime.

When it comes to first impression articles, I rarely get a chance to actually publish them because I'm needing to earn some money and work and deal with the crippling issues inside my head that I'm too scared to properly confront and manage... Anyway, I finally got to sit down and watch the first episode of a few new anime of 2020 that appealed to me for whatever reason, and here are my immediate thoughts on them. Let's see if I can do this for every season of the year! And if there's any I missed that you'd recommend, don't hesitate to let me know!

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 46 Review - White Will

Written by Shiggins

2020 begins with a bang.

As we all struggle to write down 2020 instead of 2019, which I did as I wrote this very sentence, let us all make a resolution to keep reading this manga series and hope I get the Gajeel-Levy-daughter spinoff I always deserved. Oh and let's talk about the new chapter, because these Diabolos guys are really keeping things fun.

I'd like to put this in for the first 2020 meme.

Best of 2019 - Anime

Written by Shiggins


The final victories of the decade.

2019's anime was quite a great bunch, wasn't it? We had shonen, sports, seinen, comedy, and more isekai than was bloody necessary. And this year, I'm putting down my favourite ten! This list is in no particular order, as I just wanted to celebrate the anime we got and not care about any rankings or whatnot. And of course, only anime seasons that started in 2019 are eligible for this list. Enjoy!

Best of 2019 - Movies

Written by Shiggins


Opinion of the year!

Just like last year, I've decided to do my Best Movies list, and just like last year, I will be following the same rules. Several categories, three films per category, everything here is purely my own opinion, and I encourage you to share your own favourites down below too. We had a very busy year full of successes and bombs, and it's time to celebrate them! Oh and just so you know, these aren't in any order whatsoever.

Star Wars Episode XI: The Rise of Skywalker - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Forced.

Star Wars began in 1977 with one of the most popular and quotable sci-fi movies to this day. After that, The Empire Strikes Back came out and, to this day, is still considered one of the greatest sequels of all time. We had awful prequels with great ideas but poor execution, spin-off movies, tv shows, board games, video games, books, costumes, a rabid fanbase, a lovely fanbase... so if you're going to finish the entire story of Star Wars, you better be prepared to bring out as much creativity as you can to make the final entry worthy of such a legacy... So why didn't you, guys?

Note: This is a spoiler-filled review. Full spoilers ahead.


I gotta admit, I'll never tire of these posters though.

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 45 Review - Red Conclusion

Written by Shiggins

A non-Star Wars review?!

Yes, in a shocking twist, I'm releasing a Fairy Tail review in December! Despite there being a Star Wars film that everyone is talking about (and a Cats film that everyone is laughing about), I'm talking about a completely different story for now! Yes, Star Wars will come later this week, but for now let's just enjoy a fitting finale to the battle between two of the franchise's best heroes, not to mention two of the hottest rawr.

Superman vs Doomsday - Manga edition. Next up, Netflix!

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapters 42, 43 and 44 Review - The "Erza is Awesome but so is Laxus" Edition

Written by Shiggins

Cats in the church with a silver spoon.

Twists, gasps, turns and more! There's a fluffy tail, red lightning, girls trapped in cocoons, and weird gum! Do you guys need anymore than that? I don't! So here we are with another triple review, as Fairy Tail has really been killing it lately! Good on them!

Boom Raider! (Best bad-joke I could think up...)

Promare - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Thrill la Thrill.

Quickly becoming one of my favourite animation studios in Japan, Trigger have been getting some fame over the years for their distinct Gainax-influenced style (the two founders originally worked for Gainax and helped create Gurren Lagann) and unique stories, including Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia. And now we're here with their first film release. Did they stick the landing, or should Trigger have never left the weekly schedule?

Okay, now just... lean in a little bit closer...

Note: Some minor spoilers ahead.

Frozen 2 - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Cracks in the ice.

So the first Frozen was released in 2013 and is currently sitting as the highest-grossing animated film of all time, unless you want to include this year's Lion King as an animated film, and is one of the most well-known Disney movies of the modern age. So obviously, you're going to have to go above and beyond to bring out a sequel worthy of the original, and the non-remake side of Disney has been doing pretty well this year so I'm sure that.... oh no, here we go.
