• Gintama: The Movie

    Mar 17, 2015

    Although it is undoubtedly still an enjoyable arc from the show, the decision to make ‘Gintama: The Movie’ a collection of existing episodes feels somewhat disappointing.

  • One Piece Film: Z

    May 7, 2015

    ‘One Piece Film: Z’ is a really good ‘One Piece’ movie. It has some very solid animation, plenty of action and an engaging story that genuinely feels connected to the show.

  • One Piece: Baron Omatsuri And The Secret Island

    May 8, 2015

    Being an action fan it is fair to say I was very aware of the lack of it, but at the same time this is easily overlooked when you consider the quality exhibited in the story department.

  • One Piece: Chopper’s Kingdom On The Island Of Strange Animals

    May 8, 2015

    They aren’t churning out masterpieces but they are staying true to the franchise and I think that’s all any fan could ask for.

  • One Piece: Clockwork Island Adventure

    May 8, 2015

    I’d definitely say that this is another fun footnote for the ‘One Piece’ universe that will easily appease your withdrawal symptoms in-between episodes.

  • One Piece: Curse Of The Sacred Sword

    May 8, 2015

    Although this movie marks the fifth big screen outing for the ‘One Piece’ pirate crew, the series is showing no signs of weakness and continues to churn out one successful adventure film after another.

  • One Piece: Dead End Adventure

    May 8, 2015

    This particular effort is easily my favourite so far as it truly understands the heart of ‘One Piece’ and is an absolute joy to watch.

  • One Piece: Episode Of Alabasta – The Desert Princess And The Pirates

    May 8, 2015

    Existing fans will no doubt spend the majority of the movie bemoaning the loss of certain key scenes, while newcomers will be left scratching their heads throughout.

  • One Piece: Episode Of Chopper – Bloom In The Winter, Miracle Sakura

    May 9, 2015

    ‘One Piece: Episode of Chopper’ is a surprisingly respectful and entertaining reinterpretation of one of my favourite arcs.

  • One Piece: Karakuri Castle’s Mecha Giant Soldier

    May 9, 2015

    While I don’t think I could call it my favourite of the ‘One Piece’ movies, this seventh outing is yet another fine example of how to make a very entertaining side story.

  • One Piece: Straw Hat Chase

    May 25, 2015

    The new animation style makes it feel very unique and there’s a real larger-than-life approach to the whole production.

  • One Piece: Strong World

    May 9, 2015

    Despite all the talk prior to its release, the film is essentially just routine filler that, whilst definitely still fun and impressive to look at, doesn’t exactly break any new boundaries.
