wish-header-steam

Wish -Tale of the sixteenth night of the lunar moon- is the kinetic visual novel from the doujin developer Migiha. The story revolves around a group of people capable of using a secret energy known as Prana, which has the ability to manipulate objects and do all kinds of magical things. Of course, things are not all as they seem for the main character, Tenka, who has been unable to harness the power of Prana until a chance encounter with his adoptive families cursed katana. The story itself seems to be influenced by Type-Moon’s style of games (think Fate/Stay Night), but with a bit more of a doujin feel to it.

Tokyo Ghoul Root A – Complete Season 2 Review

tokyo-ghoul-va-box-art

Tokyo Ghoul is the hit anime series based on the manga of the same name. In Tokyo Ghoul, we follow the life of Ken Kannacky who has recently become a kind of ghoul-human hybrid after receiving a transplant of Ghoul organs while in an accident. Tokyo Ghoul Root A is the second season of this series and continues on almost exactly after the end of the first season. However, it seems as though there is a shift in tone, storytelling and directing. It is released by Madman Entertainment here in Australia and the English adaptation is done by Funimation. Right off the bat, Tokyo Ghoul’s story throws us straight into the action with the resolution to the Police vs. Ghouls … Continue reading

Shingeki no Kyojin – Attack On Titan, if you haven’t heard of it, is one of the largest Japanese anime and manga franchises on the market at the moment. The franchise is about humanity being on the brink of extinction thanks to relentless attacks by a mysterious enemy, known as Titans, for generations.

If you’ve seen the anime or read the manga, the … Continue reading

Rage of Bahamut Genesis: Season 1 Review

rage-of-bahamut-gensis-box-art

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is the anime series loosely based on the Mobile CCG, Rage of Bahamut, published by Mobage and developed by Cygames. The story follows the character Favaroooooooooooooooo! as he travels with a half-demon named Amira on a quest to find the land of Helheim. As an adventure anime, Rage of Bahumut has a lot of strengths, and as a comedy, it somehow works. I had first heard about Rage of Bahamut back in 2012 when it was a new Mobage game, back when I was playing Monster Rancher on my old Galaxy S2. The company, Mobage, have an English language version of their game service (and in my opinion, it’s a lot more robust than the Japanese … Continue reading

The first half of the story is all about setting up the world, the characters and the overarching plot. The protagonist is Yuichiro Hyakuya, a sixteen year old orphan hell … Continue reading
