All You Need To Know About Kotobukiya’s Horror Bishoujo  Line

Over the last two years, I’ve become increasingly interested in figurine collecting. One of my favourite companies is Kotobukiya, and if I could, I’d probably buy all of their figures.

Higurashi: When They Cry – Gou Episode 2 Review

After watching episode 1 of Higurashi New, I wasn’t entirely sure I’d stick with it. As I mentioned in my review, I wasn’t completely sold on the slice-of-life gags and the characters hadn’t really connected with me. But after watching episode 2, I’m really glad I gave the series another shot. The episode opens with a… Continue reading Higurashi: When They Cry – Gou Episode 2 Review

Higurashi: When They Cry – New Episode 1 Review

While I am a massive fan of horror anime and manga, it may come as quite a shock that I’ve never watched the original Higurashi When They Cry (2006). I also own the visual novels that the anime is based off, but haven’t gotten around to playing them (oh that ever growing Steam backlog). So while I… Continue reading Higurashi: When They Cry – New Episode 1 Review

So without further ado let’s jump into my latest tantalising read. #Killstagram is an… Continue reading #Killstagram Webtoon Review – Looks to Die For

There’s something strangely tantalising about finding your next big scare. I’ve read supernatural horror and I’ve read gory horror, and for… Continue reading 4 Horror Manga I Can’t Get Out Of My Head

The Art of Junji Ito: Twisted Visions  Review

I was first introduced to Junji Ito’s work when I was fifteen years old. I remember my friend talking non-stop about Uzumaki, and almost infecting us with her obsession with the spiral-themed manga. Our friendship group quickly devoured the series. While not everyone kept up with Ito over the years, I definitely did. I followed his… Continue reading The Art of Junji Ito: Twisted Visions  Review
