Phew! Good news for British geeks as Channel 4 renews Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Wouldn’t it suck if Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continued in the form that the last few episodes of season 1 got up to and if no network in the UK picked up the show. It would surely do wonders for Netflix, BlinkBox or Amazon’s Instant Video membership. Good news, though, as free to watch Channel 4 […]

Proof of concept: The Animated Adventures of Doctor Who

animated doctor who

When I first saw this unofficial animation I wondered how the BBC would react. Now we know. The Official Doctor Who has shared the animation. Created by Stephen Byrne the short animation images what a cartoon Doctor Who might be like. Rather nicely Byrne uses the 12th Doctor for his hero. This isn’t the Oncoming […]

Oni v Samurai: Legend of the Millennium Dragon review


The first thing I noticed about Legend of the Millennium Dragon was the alternative anime style. I’m used to anime characters having larger heads and eyes than their body size would suggest but this movie took it a little further.

For a while, at least. I’m not sure what explains the burning dinosaur stomping through London. Have roleplayers been involved […]

Is this the next Gundam? Cross Ange trailer


Cross Ange is a new mecha anime from Sunrise. That’s the team responsible for mecha hits like Gundam, Code Geass and Vlavrave. Mitsui Fukuda, Gundam SEED director, is the creative director on the project. If you happened to notice the pilot’s armour was odd; a mix of protective shell and knickers then you’d be right. […]

Doctor Who: BBC America releases “Deep Breath” promo pictures


Deep Breath is the first episode of the new Doctor Who. BBC America have released some promo pictures for it – and it’s the old gang with a new face. There’s Jenna Coleman as Clara, Neve McIntosh as Madame Vastra and, of course, Peter Capaldi as The Doctor. What do you think? Too early to […]

The price of eternal life: A review of Fairy Tail the Movie – Phoenix Priestess

Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess

Some anime moves make for an excellent catch up and introduction for fans. Only recently, for example, I suggested that Strong World was a great way to introduce people to One Piece. Sure; you didn’t know the background to all the characters but you still got a flavour for the series. Fairy Tail the Movie: […]
