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.

Note: Minor spoilers ahead.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapter 41 Review - Trump Card for a Counterattack

Written by Shiggins

From monthly to weekly.

So yes, it seems that 100 Years Quest has gone the weekly route instead of monthly. I must confess I'm happy about that because it means more Fairy Tail and more manga, but it's also got me wondering how to space out these reviews. Every week? Every fortnight? Well, until I've decided or someone gives advice, I'm going to go ahead and give this newbie a review. It has magical-growing bras!

She was naked before! (I mean, I'm relieved but I still demand answers)

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapters 39 and 40 Review - Cocoon Dragon Coocoo and Thicker than Blood

Written by Shiggins

Ghost and a shell.

After such a strong start to a character, I was really looking forward to a fitting finale. Sadly, get ready for some negativity in this review... but on the plus side, it's not all bad! And even more positively, it looks like we're going to be getting these chapters more frequently! Seriously, Mashima-senpai. Your work attitude is very impressive.

A very appropriate reaction.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 36, 37 and 38 Review - Ghost Slayer Edition

Written by Shiggins

A whole new world?

Why has it taken this long to publish this review? Well, I kept trying to release an article or review! And as soon as it was released, oh look, another chapter of Fairy Tail! But here it is now, no more waiting or making excuses. You've got my apologies! We've got three chapters to look over. Let's hope they're awesome and not confusing at all in any way... Oh look, Natsu's in not-heaven. That's a great start!

How can you not love his monotone ass?

Ranking the Disney Remakes So Far

Written by Shiggins

The Mouse always takes a cut.

Disney's live-action remakes of it's classic films just won't stop being made, nor will they stop making money. At time of writing, Disney are working on GODDAMN TWELVE more remakes, not including November's Lady and the Tramp on Disney+, and so we're clearly not escaping this nonsense for a while. Despite my words however, does that mean none of them are of value? Is there no fun to be had? "Which ones are worth a look?", you ask me. Very well, let's take a look at them all and determine which, if any, deserve our attention.

Top 20 Batman Villains

Written by Shiggins

Making heroes go batty.

So since Joker is still making headlines and money, I figured now was as good a time as any to publish the ranking of Batman's best bads from best to 20th. Why 20? Well, it was going to be a top 10 but Batman's rogue gallery might literally be the best of all comic booky time, so I couldn't keep it at the usual 10. (Basically, it's the reason My Hero Academia's list is 20 characters long too!). Anyway, enough stalling. Let's see who's the best of the bad, as if it isn't obvious already!

Note: Spoilers for many origin stories below!

Joker - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Yes, he says "society".

Comic book movies have come far, haven't they? We've had great ones, awful ones, epic ones, funny ones, romantic ones, scary ones, stupid ones. We're even meant to be getting a horror movie about the New Mutants one day. However, I don't think we've ever had an Oscarbait one before now, so already Joker was turning a few heads and waggling some eyebrows before it was even released. Is there more to the film however that could possibly make DC reach the great heights it has missed since 2012, or is it just a desperate plea from yet another filmmaker to gain some recognition from Mr and Mrs Oscar?

Note: Minor spoilers ahead.

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 34 and 35 Review - New Assassin's and Ghost Dragon Wraith

Written by Shiggins

The skull kids are back!

Instead of an introduction paragraph this time, I'm going to give me thanks to everyone involved with translating and providing these chapters. I don't do it enough, and that is my sin. So before the review, here is everyone who deserves praise for their hard underappreciated work.

They even say to support the official release at the end. Another thing I don't say often enough, even though I do it consistently by buying the books.
