Kill La Kill Volume 1 Review

kill-la-kill-box-art

Kill La Kill is quite possibly the biggest anime series to come out of Japan in the last year. The series is directed and animated by Trigger, the studio best known for being the best parts of Gainax before they split off, and, of course, creating Inferno Cop. Kill La Kill is a series that will go on to define Trigger as a studio that takes an over-the-top stand in their animation, proving that they are one of the strongest studios in Japan when it comes to animated storytelling. Kill La Kill Volume 1 follows the first 4 episodes of the series, which really serve as the gateway into the Kill La Kill universe. In the first four episodes we … Continue reading

The Sacred Tears TRUE Review

the-sacred-tears-true-logo

However, The Sacred Tears TRUE is way more impressive than a mere TCG RPG. Alphanuts have developed a story and created a rather interesting game using dated technology which should be surprisingly interesting to gamers. The first thing that’s noticeable with The Sacred Tears TRUE is that it was built on the classic RPGMaker 2003 engine. At the first glance, we could have sworn that this title was built on the even older RPGMaker 2000 engine, but the game had a few tells that lead us to this conclusion. The … Continue reading
