Anime Review: Goblin Slayer

With a name like Goblin Slayer, you’d expect this to be a relatively simple little anime. You know, you have a protagonist who goes around and slays some little green-skinned humanoid creatures, which fight in packs – Sounds about right? Well, that’s exactly what you get… Except, when you think of the term “Goblin Slayer”, you expect some early level stuff in an RPG. You think of a protagonist killing creatures and getting a lot of gold for it. Again, you get just that and a lot more in Goblin Slayer. If that’s whetted your appetite for the surprise ahead, then read on for more.

GeekOut Bristol Meet: August 10th – GeekOut’s Bizarre Adventure

Yare, yare!

It was definitely a Bizarre kind of night on Friday, where the good folk who attended GeekOut Bristol Meet came up with some awesome stands to call their own. It was a quieter meetup, with the entire pub being somewhat quieter than usual, but that wasn’t a problem – It meant there was more space for us all to play some great games and have excellent conversation. Most of the attendees would likely agree that the quieter atmosphere made for a much more relaxing day, so come join us as we check out this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.

Top 10 Magical Swords

GeekOut Top 10s

Nothing beats the destructive power of a sword; slashing away at the opponent’s life. It’s no wonder that people always want to find a way to make the sword even mightier, as some people penned up the idea that you need to mix swords with magic. Adding a pinch of the arcane, or the occult, suddenly you don’t just have a weapon to be wielded by the capable hands of a warrior. No, you’ve created something much more dangerous… You’ve created a weapon capable of destroying countless lives, devouring souls, splitting time and more.

Interested? You’d better be as these are our Top 10 Magical Swords. (more…)

Anime Review: Megalo Box

It’s the Eye of the Tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight. Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival!

Now that I’ve got that classic tune stuck in your head, let’s turn our attention to Megalo Box. One of the latest sport anime to be released, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the manga Ashita no Joe, Megalo Box is a stunning re-imagining of the boxing anime classic. In a bleak dystopian future, a city, filled with the wealthiest in the centre and slums all around the outskirts, houses the gear-based boxing tournament, Megalonia. Will the protagonist, Junk Dog, manage to rise through the ranks, gain his entry to Megolonia and face off against the undefeated Yuri, the king of kings himself who works for Shirato Corporation, the hosts of Megalonia? You do not want to miss this one!
