My Hero Academia Chapter 155 & 156 Review - Saviours, Rescuees and a Hero's Whereabouts & The Rescuee's Power

Written by Shiggins


Okay, hopefully this is the last double review for a while.

Regular weekly reviews for this series should begin as normal starting next week, as I have been neglecting the reviewing of this franchise for a while because of other responsibilities going on. Some personal, some petty. However, enough about me. Let's talk about Me... Diroya! Get it? Midoriya! But... me. Haha... Please love me.

Man, when Tumblr finds out about this guy...

Digimon Adventure Tri Part 5: Coexistence Review - Cruising for a Snoozing

Written by Shiggins

Part 3 Review - CLICK HERE

Part 4 Review - CLICK HERE

Note: This review is as SPOILER-FREE as possible.

*yawn*

The penultimate entry in any series always has one goal; Build up the tension for the finale. It's not an easy job and many have failed. And unfortunately, Part 5 of Digimon Adventure Tri is so dull that I am looking to the finale of Tri (announced for Summer 2018) with nothing but trepidation. Well, only after I injected myself with adrenaline to wake up.

Girl power! Ha, if only.

Dragon Ball - Does it Still Hold Up?

Written by Shiggins

And no, I don't mean Z!

If you were to ask the average fan of Dragon Ball Z whether or not they had seen the original arcs of Dragon Ball, you'd have a 50/50 chance of being told they never have. It's not uncommon for people born in the 90s and onwards to have started at the Saiyan Saga and then never been curious enough to go back to Goku's origins. I did however, and there are quite a few surprises for someone who adores Z and Super. However, is it able to stand with the rest of the franchise?

Look at this little shit... Back when tails were the weirdest thing in Bulma's life.

Danganronpa V3 Controversy - A Response to a Past Article

Written by Shiggins

For more context, click here: Should We Be Pissed?

A few months ago, Danganronpa V3's story was leaked online and, as much as I tried to avoid it, the internet refused to bow down and made sure I got spoilers. After reading about it, I got quite a disturbing surprise and so I posted the article you can read above. However, I also pledged to make a response to the article when V3 officially came out in the UK, and so here it is. Was I wrong? Was I right? Was I left? Let's find out!

Side note: I may or may not do a full review on the game soon. You may or may not comment on that.
Note: FULL SPOILERS BELOW. DO NOT CLICK THIS ARTICLE UNLESS YOU ARE FULLY PREPARED FOR SPOILERS ON DANGANRONPA'S ENDING.

My Hero Academia Chapters 153 & 154 Review - Transform! & A Hope That Cannot Be Seen

Written by Shiggins

Fu... sion... HA!

Speaking of references to Dragon Ball Z, how cool is it to see Overhaul give himself a final form like this? It's one of my favourite anime tropes and the sheer level of this design is freaking phenomenal. I'm just getting my adoration for the final form out of the way right now because, while the chapter was good, I just can't get how cool this thing looked out of my head!

Oh... She's an albino too. Wow, the Gods didn't give her a chance, did they?

The Best Manga of 2017 that you Should be Reading, you Pickle

Written by Shiggins

I want to do some promoting.

Every year, we get new manga. Some of it I hate, like the Parasyte-esque Jagaaaaan, and some of it I love like My Hero Academia. (I review that now. Tell your friends). However, I want to take a moment to tell you all about the manga you should be reading and why it is the best manga to come out of 2017. Not only will I be telling you what is the best manga of the year, but why it is the best manga of the year. Here we go...

Top 20 Anime Villains

Written by Shiggins

I love villains.

I've made it clear before that villains are my favourite category of every genre, as proven by past articles including the recent one listing One Piece's best and worst antagonists, but that only made me want to show love towards the other shows in my life. So without further ado, I present to you the great list of anime's most brilliant, evil and ridiculous villains ever. Enjoy... and cower before their might!

My Hero Academia Chapter 152 Review - Lemillion

Written by Shiggins

I think Mirio is trying to tell us he's a hero.

The battle between Mirio and Overhaul finally comes to its tragic conclusion, although I'll admit to a surprise with the outcome. On the bright side, it was definitely an emotional event that Midoriya will never forget, and that has cemented Mirio as one of the most badass characters of MHA.

Please... no more flashbacks. I can't handle so many at once.

My Hero Academia Chapter 151 Review - Toogata Mirio!!

Written by Shiggins

Edna was wrong!

It's weird to say, but I've never seen a story actually tell me the reason a hero wears a cape. Not only did they manage to deliver a fairly badass chapter for Tintin, they had him actually fight against the will of Edna Mode as he tells us that heroes should wear capes! Pixar, we await your response!

Now THAT is worth a salute.

Netflix's Death Note Review

Written by Shiggins

In this case, is more less?

Anime has never had a bright reputation when it comes to western adaptations, mostly due to what can only be described as "softening the blow". Anime is bizarre, insane, sometimes terrifying but always capable of giving a unique storyline that most Hollywood movies would never risk trying, due to alienating general audiences who might not appreciate some of the weirdness. Director Adam Wingard, best known for 2016's Blair Witch, vowed to help change that with his adaptation of the hit classic series Death Note. That's a bold claim to make, but was he able to pull it off?

Minor spoilers ahead.

I never thought I'd say this but... the film really didn't explain the apples properly.
