Chucky Season 1 Episode 1 Recap & Analysis: Death by ‘Misadventure’

Diving into a franchise that has produced eight feature films certainly isn’t child’s play, but the latest adventure centered around everyone’s favorite homicidal doll has one thing going for it that its predecessor did not. Whereas Don Mancini, the writer for every other film in the series, wasn’t involved in the 2019 Child’s Play reboot, he’s back at the helm for Chucky’s first venture into television. As a result, this adaptation automatically benefits from the feeling that it stays true to t...

Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc Episode 1 – Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku Review

Demon Slayer’s Mugen Train film was universally loved by fans and critics alike, and the Demon Slayer anime is attempting to tackle that story again with a retelling before the premiere of Season 2. The first episode of the Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc is interesting, however, as it represents an entirely new addition to the story, not even featured in the original manga.  “Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku” takes place shortly before the events of Mugen Train , and serves as a prologue of sor...

Hiro Mashima’s Edens Zero is Self-Aware and Worth Watching Because of It

When I first got into anime and manga, I was a huge fan of Hiro Mashima’s work, specifically Rave Master. Through the years, mostly due to Fairy Tail and the god almighty mess it has become, I’ve handed in my official fangirl card. However, with the new release of Edens Zero on Netflix, I couldn’t resist taking a peek, torn between a critical eye and what might still be the heart of a fangirl. So let’s see! Clearing the elephant in the room – yes, character designs do look very similar to Fai...

Five Anime Series That Are Due for a Remake

Remakes have been a trend for quite a while and have shown little signs of slowing down as nostalgia continues to grow. From recent anime examples like Fruits Basket, FullMetal Alchemist, and Sailor Moon, it’s clear it’s not just for western media. Many of these anime remakes are more faithful adaptations, while others update the material in a fresh way. With some surprise announcements like the upcoming Tokyo Mew Mew series, I decided to take a look at some of the animes that are most deserving...

Star Wars: Visions Review: I’ve Got a Good Feeling About This Anime

It’s time to return to a galaxy far, far away. Amid the ongoing Marvel animated anthology series, What If…?, it is time for Star Wars to enter the genre with Star Wars: Visions, an animated anthology set in a world of lightsaber battles, kyber crystals, and a consistent bad feeling about this. The modern era of Star Wars has been polarizing, with fans generally divided on the quality of the sequel trilogy. Some have criticized the franchise for going down a very safe route (minus The Last Jedi),...
