  • Out of Rupees – Project Podcast Two Thirds And A Spy

    Hello! Francis and Lucy are back, sans Andy on this occasion, to talk about all things Nintendo. This episode of Out of Rupees features chat about all the big talking points (from a few weeks ago because I – Adam, the editor – took far too long to get...
  • Could A Gundam Movie Succeed?

    Last week, Netflix announced that it was collaborating with Legendary Entertainment to produce a live-action Mobile Suit Gundam film. The Director of Kong: Skull Island, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, is attached to direct with award winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan writing the screenplay. Legendary and Sunrise had announced that...
  • The Balls Are Gathered & Then Scattered Once Again

    We’re finally at the end of a long journey. I’ve watched 291 episodes of anime and written 12 articles about them – including this one. That’s a lot. Easily the biggest undertaking I’ve had as a writer thus far. I actually dread to think about the word count of...
  • The Mess & Kid Buu

    Season Nine is, in a word, a mess. A meandering mixture of interesting, inexplicable, cool and downright ridiculous twists and turns. It feels aimless at times because it simply doesn’t have the overarching structure that most of the other seasons had to keep it focused. We get to a...

  • Pride & Atonement

    Okay, so last season was a bit of a disappointment but the good news is, this season is sublime. I’ve been waiting for this season. There’s so much to talk about I’m really excited to get stuck into it. So much so I’m writing this opening paragraph before I’ve...
  • The Weakest Link

    I don’t know where to start with this season if I’m being honest. It’s the weakest season so far, the weirdest too, but not because it is bad. Just in that it is so different. It’s the harshest of handbrake turns in terms of the shift in tone; I...
  • Let The Games Begin

    This is it! The final season, where everything comes together and reaches its spectacular conclusion. Lol, jokes, no there’s three more seasons to go after this one. Though this is often cited as being originally intended as an end to the series, just as Season Three was, it continued...
  • A Final Flash Of Hope

    This is an excellent season. I love the way it builds and really twists what we thought we knew as an audience. Watching the characters grapple with the shift in circumstances is really interesting. With several of the “lesser lights” getting a chance to really get involved and develop...
