Dr. Stone Vol. 2 Review

Dr. Stone concocts a dubious twist. In my previous review for Dr. Stone’s first volume, I stated “certain events” prevented me from disclosing the truth behind Dr. Stone’s opening chapters, namely to the effect that it was “tricking” its readers. With said hoodwink come and gone, it’s time to…

Dragon Ball: That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha! Review

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Poor Yamcha: be it getting impaled, losing every Tenkaichi Budokai, or suffering point-blank explosions by suicidal Saibamen – I’m sorry, “Cultivars” – it’s hard not to feel sorry for everyone’s favorite Dragon Ball punching bag.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: Vol. 4 Review

To Eldin and Lanaryu! Is Akira Himekawa’s adaption of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess still the best Zelda manga around? For sure — granted, I wasn’t as taken with this fourth volume as I was last time, yet I can’t deny I’m far more engaged with this adaption…
