Pokemon Masters was an app I was excited to get. Most pokemon games focus on the main selling point of the series, the pokemon, but finally with Pokemon Masters we got a game that gave us a chance to celebrate the human characters of pokemon. 

Through all the games so far, Pokemon has had wonderful designs for gym leaders, champions, rivals and more so it's great to get a game showcasing them.

But, after playing it for a while,...

I want to talk about some good anime boys. Lately, the shounen genre has just come out with really likeable protagonists. Ones you want to root for and follow anywhere. 
In the past anime has had protags have been kinda annoying and you only follow them because their supporting cast is great,  and some they have put up the tough guy act and scowl all the time. 
The three protagonists I want to talk about, smile and laugh...

Why did I start reading it?

Mostly because it's the next Manga from the soul eater author and I got Volumes 1-10 in a humble bundle a while ago

What is it?

In a world where spontaneous human combustion is a worryingly common occurrence that turns people into fire beats called Infernals, Tokyo's special fire force are called out to lay their poor souls to rest by fighting fire with fire. 

What are the characters like?

I love them. T...

Another month and more manga!

New Reading:

"In a future lawless Tokyo, retribution is delivered by shinobi!"

Current Chapter Count: 8

Tokyo Shinobi Squad is a fairly new addition to the jump family and one I started because my boyfriend said it was good and I wanted to get into a manga series at the start and be there for the journey as it grows. 

Admittedly, I've only read about 2 chapters so far but it's been interesting. Our mai...

Manga reading continues! 

New Reading:

"Rin and his exorcist classmates are caught in a secret war against the forces of darkness."

Current Chapters Released: 111

After a twitter poll to help me decide, I started to read is Blue Exorcist. It's been on my list for a while. I have watched the anime and know bits and bobs of the manga but I'm really looking forward to getting the full story!

Like when I started World Trigger I decided...

For ages, I've wanted some kind of subscription service to catch up on the latest manga. Turns out Shonen Jump had an app where I could do just this. Here's a bit about the Manga I've been reading since I signed up!

If you want to find the app yourself I'll leave details at the bottom (no I wasn't paid to advertise it but I wish I had...)

New Reading:

Everything is new reading since this is the first post about this. I'll at leas...

Why did I start reading it?
Haven't reviewed a comic/manga for a while and Humble Bundle had a manga bundle with Alita, so with the movie, it seemed like a good time to see where this series came from. I can't say I haven't been curious about this classic.

What is it?
Under the floating city of Zalem lays the Scrapyard, a literal trash heap where people attempt to forge their lives. In a world where most people seem to be at le...

New anime season is here and as much as we are pretty deep in this is the first chance I've had to go through my watch list (sorry! The blog has been full and busy). It's a really good season going on at the moment :). As usual, I'll stick where you can find the official releases in here. Here are the ones I've tried and am hoping to stick with:


The world of Radiant is plagued by monsters called Nemesis. Those who surviv...

Warning! As this is the fourth book into a series avoiding spoilers is going to be near impossible. Read at your own discretion.

Why did I start reading it?
Well, I've read all the others (Links to the series posts below) and enjoyed them so I don't see why I would stop now. 

What is it?
Magical Girl Raising Project as a series is based on the idea of magical girl battle royales. This particular book is a collection of small sid...
