My Hero Academia Vol. 24 Review

Chillin’ like a villain! Kohei Horikoshi’s opening Author Notes apologizes for Volume 24’s distinct lack of Izuku “Deku” Midoriya; actually, aside from forbidden photos or the occasional chapter cover, not a single hero’s spotted within the latest volume of My Hero Academia. Indeed, Spinner’s banner replacement on the cover…

Jujutsu Kaisen Vol. 4 Review

This is the same series? For real? Fellow manga connoisseurs, I stand before you today served with a delectable plate of crow. That stupid Jujutsu Kaisen comic — the one I initially judged as another clunker ready and primed for Shonen Jump’s axe — has steadily morphed from a…

Persona 5 Vol. 2 Review

Where have you been? Quarantine’s been something of a boon for my Persona 5 Royal experience — I already juggle enough pastimes as it is, so with everything from revisiting Banjo-Tooie to assembling jigsaw puzzles (my personal pile of shame; thankfully, James Coleman’s Pooh’s Afternoon Nap perfectly channels an…
