Why Deku is the Best Protagonist Right Now

Written by Shiggins

I need a hero!

With My Hero Academia Season 3 currently airing, and doing a splendid job of adapting the source material if I do say so myself, now is the best time to talk about the anime protagonist Midoriya Izuku, also known as Deku, and why he is arguably the best hero that Shonen Jump has to offer in this day and age, now that we no longer have Naruto or Ichigo or Light. 

Note: Very minor spoilers for My Hero Academia follow.

Well first of all, he's soooooo cute!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This series isn't extinct yet!

After 2015's Jurassic World finally brought the franchise back in a meaningful and fun way that the previous sequels had failed to do so, it was inevitable we would get another one. And I applaud that, because Jurassic World's setting is too full of routes and ideas that not exploring them would be a criminal. So does the 2018 entry into one of the greatest movie franchises of all time actually revolutionise the series, or just keep it dragging on?

Note: This is a SPOILER-FREE review.

Why I'm Worried About Star Wars; Episode 9

Written by Shiggins

This one will probably get people angry.

It's impossible to even mention Star Wars these days without someone bringing up The Last Jedi and the divisive opinions it created. Some despised it and will literally call it the worst movie ever made, while others enjoyed it. As I noticed yet another section of Facebook comments complaining about how Rian Johnson has personally killed their families by directing the movie, I started to ponder on the future of Star Wars. Both the movies and the franchise as a whole.

Why no love for the purple lightsaber?!

Ranking the Overwatch Shorts

Written by Shiggins

Four more years! Four more years!

With Overwatch turning two this month, and myself having played over 200 hours on the thing (which is pretty casual when compared to some other players), I wanted to devote my time to highlighting the love I feel for one of Overwatch's greatest assets; Their animated shorts! These amazing videos, usually consisting of just under 10 minutes, have been heavily praised and adored by fans all over, but which one is the best (so far)? And more importantly, which one features the most Tracer?

Digimon Adventure Tri Part 6; Future - No Hope for the Future

Written by Shiggins

Thank Homeostasis that's over!

Those who have read my previous reviews of Digimon Adventure Tri will know that I wasn't looking forward to this finale. I grew up with Digimon Adventure and Tamers, but I'm not the type of guy who is so nostalgia-blinded that sequels instantly make me vomit. I adored Dragon Ball Super, after all. Tri on the other hand has been a ride full of ups and downs, and I was concerned that they wouldn't be able to conclude it well. And...

Note: Spoilers for all six sections of Digimon Adventure Tri.

Deadpool 2 - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This review was brought to you by the writer of those Fairy Tail chapter reviews!

It was inevitable that the most successful adult movie of all time so far, 2016's Deadpool, would get a sequel as quickly as possible. Well-received and tons of fun, despite such a low budget, the movie was praised from the mountains by fans and foes alike. And while I didn't go that far, I still thought it was a fun film that gave me a nice relief from the serious drama of other superhero flicks. And after the raw drama of Infinity War, it was nice to have some warm fuzzy comedy covered in blood.

Note: This is a spoiler-free review.

Mikan School - Serious Art

Written by Shiggins

Well, this was a surprise!

As you all know from my reviews in the past, I'm not afraid to be blunt. It's one of the benefits of being Scottish. So when I was asked to take a look at this business, I didn't know how to take it at first. However, I quickly realised that they wanted me to be honest and blunt about what I thought of them of them. So I logged in, gave it a look, and now I can tell you all about Mikan School, what it is they do and how I felt going into it.

Avengers: Infinity War - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

10 years, 19 movies, countless heroes!

In 2008, Iron Man crashed into cinemas. None of us predicted that in ten years time, we'd be able to sit down and watch as dozens of well-developed Marvel characters from an entire roster of bright and sparkling movies would be ganging up together in one of the biggest crossover movies of all time. And yet here we are, with the beginning of the climatic showdown that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to for so long. So the big question is... Does it live up to the hype?

To Infinity War, and beyond!
NOTE: This is a spoiler-free review, however I will include spoilers at the bottom of the article. If you wish to avoid spoilers, then you may read until my score and do not go past the SPOILER STONE in the article. I warned you.

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights
Written by: ClayDragon & Shiggins

Now that Dragon Ball Super has finished airing (for the moment) and we’ve had some time to come down off of the massive high that it gave us, we figured that we’d take a look at some of the best fights this sequel series had to offer. To be eligible for this list, the battle had to have been first shown in Super, so fights that were first shown in the Battle of Gods and Resurrection F movies will not be included here.

As is this the case with many of these lists, SPOILER ALERT. You have been warned.

What is the One Piece? - Theories

Written by Shiggins

900 chapters and we still don't know!

The fact that One Piece is still so supremely popular, despite not even revealing the secret behind its own title, is nothing short of a miracle. In fact, it just keeps adding story lines instead of concluding them! And so, it is time to celebrate the release of over 900 chapters of this series (seriously, that is impressive) by tossing my own straw hat in and giving some guesses as to what I think the mysterious treasure known only as "One Piece" could be!

I swear to God, if it turns out to be that damn hat...
