The Cat Returns review

Beginning note

Today, I will review The Cat returns. This is another film by studio Ghibli. It is quite considerably newer than My neighbour Totoro and therefore came at a time when the Western world was more accepting of Japanese culture. This film was released in Japan in 2002 and in the States a year later. My favourite dub has to be the Cat King, who is dubbed by Tim Curry!

Black Butler anime review

Beginning note

Today I will be reviewing the Black Butler anime. This anime was 2 seasons or 36 episodes long. The first season, of 24 episodes, was introduced to America on the eleventh of January 2011- by which I mean as a dubbed series, it had previously been out in a subbed variant. The second series is currently being dubbed but has not yet been released in the States.

Warning: this review may contain spoilers.

My neighbour Totoro review

Beginning note

Today I will be reviewing My neighbour Totoro, the first Ghibli film I ever watched. This Ghibli film is the ninth in the Ghibli collection and was introduced to the USA in 1993, though it has been re-dubbed since then. Because Miyazaki (studio Ghibli creator) didn't want the film to alter from the Japanese, the name of Totoro remains unchanged.

Death Note manga review

The Japanese cover of book 1
Beginning note

I'll start off by saying that this is the first manga I read all the way to the end. The first manga I actually read a bit of was Fruits Basket, but I just couldn't get hold of the books. The girl that runs the local comic book store recommended that I read Death Note, so I did. And I am kinda glad I did. Now, I'm going to try and make this review have as few spoilers as possible, but I will do a very brief introduction.

Introduction to my blog

This is going to be my review blog. I will start off by reviewing manga and hopefully move on to films, books, comics, anime etc. The first proper blog I am going to do will be on the manga series Death Note. 

However, I guess I'll have to introduce myself. My online name is MmRed and I'm a girl, currently 19 years old. I'm a University student who plays Magic the Gathering and a lot of video games (some will be reviewed eventually).

So stick around as I blog about stuff I've seen, read or played- either recently or in the past.
