My Hero Academia Chapter 164, 165 & 166 Review - Masegaki, Win Those Kids' Hearts & A Warm Provisional License Training Course

Written by Shiggins


A trio of chapters that proves that the true monsters of society are children! They called me mad for believing they would destroy us all, but this manga just proved me right! Thank God we have the great whale man to protect us! (Also yes, I am so so so sorry that it took me this long to bring out this review!)

Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry Review

Written by Shiggins

Two-in-one review!

Yes, this one has been a long time coming, and it covers both anime and films so go me! For those who are unaware, this is the second movie of the Fairy Tail series and has only had two advertisements. One of them was a trailer, and the other was an epic poster of Natsu with a dragon wing and claw. Is the result worthy of that badass image? Well...

Anime-only fans are going to be sooo confused.

Coco Review

Written by Shiggins

Oh Dios mío, Pixar!

A film that has been in development for 7 years finally made its debut in America last November, but life is sometimes cruel and so I had to wait until January for the movie to come out, due to the fact I am Scotland-bound. So while this review may seem late to some of you, I assure you that this was written as soon as I finally saw the film.

Note: This is a spoiler-free review.

That is one bridge I do not trust!

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Worthy of the Uzumaki Name?

Written by Shiggins

Requested by Kudakwashe Timba.

2017 was the introduction of Naruto's sequel anime Boruto, starring... well, Boruto! I hadn't ever bothered watching it because Studio Pierrot isn't exactly the first name that comes to mind when I think of a good anime company. (In other words, I think they suck). However, with recommendation comes possibility and so, I gave it a watch. Is Boruto any good? Does it surpass the original Naruto series in any way? Well...

Well, at least it's already looking better than that shitty Shippuden anime.

The Best of 2017

The Best of 2017
Written by: ClayDragon & Shiggins 

Yes ladies, gentlemen, and others, it’s that time again. Time to ring in the New Year with your friends and/or family. Time to overdose on shortbread, or set off fireworks, or (if you’re us) frantically obsess over the peaks of 2017’s anime series. Instead of our somewhat-traditional set of five lists being posted over the New Year period, we’ve done something a bit different this time. Instead, it’s just one big list, talking about the best openings, fights, characters, moments and series from across the year. Of course, putting all of this in the one post means that we’ve had to cut down a bit, so we’ll only be looking at the top three of each, and they won’t be in any particular order. With that in mind, let’s get cracking!

Side note: Whilst we made an effort to watch lots of shows that started airing this year, we couldn’t see them all. So if there’s a series that you think should be on this list but isn’t, then it’s probably because we never got around to watching it, as opposed to us not liking it.

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

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

Written by Shiggins

Bungle in the jungle!

In 1995, we got a film just simply called Jumanji, starring Robin Williams who got sucked into a board game as a kid and came out years later when some other kids started playing the exact same game. While it is definitely not as good as you remember, the film still had some charm and Robin Williams. So releasing a semi-sequel to it 3 years after his tragic passing felt slightly tone-deaf, as expected from a major studio. However, it's here now so no point complaining about it anymore. Instead, let's just judge it based on what it is, while also wondering why they didn't just change the name and save themselves the bad publicity.

No credit for the gator? Typical Hollywood!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Spoilers Review

Written by Shiggins

The Force Returns!

To kick off this new decision of making movie articles, I feel it is only fair to review the film that finally made me take the leap; The Last Jedi! Sequel to The Force Awakens and a direct continuation of Rey's story, this film has immediately gotten both love and hate from audiences so it is definitely worth talking about.

Note: Full SPOILERS below. Since every other review out there is spoiler-free, and there are important scenes we need to discuss.

Warning: This one is longer than I intended it to be. Most reviews won't be this big obviously, but this one is Star Wars. It will always require a lot of sentences.

Okay, apparently this is meant to resemble Vader's helmet. I don't see it though.

A Message for You All

Written by Shiggins

No, I'm not quitting!

In fact, that's one of the things I am going to talk about in this special article. After much deliberation and conflict with what I am currently doing with Otaku Nuts, I have decided that there are going to be a few improvements here or there. For more details, take a read.

Let this wise master tell you his grand plan!!! (No, this isn't about Naruto. I just like Jiraiya)

My Hero Academia Chapters 162 & 163 Review - One Who is Worthy & Smouldering Flames

Written by Shiggins

More pain, more gain!

And finally, my wish is granted as we finish off the overly-long arc by switching over to the supporting characters I have been longing for. It was great to spend time with Midoriya but the story has been a bit heavy and stuck for a while now, and we're ready to get a good laugh from the nutjob of the classroom!

Why does he look so much like Kirishima?

Top 10 Naruto Fights

Written by Shiggins

Another year, another Naruto.

To remember the reason this blog even exists, it is time to celebrate the legacy of Naruto once more with a battle list! Yes, I am writing down the top 10 battles to feature in the Naruto franchise and judging them by their variety, impact on the franchise and any other elements I think are worth mentioning.

Obviously, spoilers ahead. And canon works only. No filler here.
