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.

JoJo fans rejoice, as nearly two years after the last episode of Diamond is Unbreakable, the fifth Arc has finally begun! The new season started airing this past Friday (5th October 2018), which means we’re set for a good number of weeks! We’re about to see new stands, even more outlandish and crazy outfits than ever and, of course, another JoJo! Uh, except this one isn’t really a JoJo, he’s more of a GioGio – More on that later in the article. For now though, let’s check out what this arc is all about, the returning cast and of course, some of the new cast we can expect to see. There may be minor plot spoilers for the first episode, as well as some very light arc wide spoilers, so long as this arc follows the manga.

Pride: Being A Proud Gay Geek

The past month, people across the world have been celebrating Pride month, a moment for the LGBT community and allies to celebrate all that makes up diversity. We here support people to be free to be who they want to be, so long as they’re not cruel to others. Except Joel, you can be mean to Joel if you want*. I thought I’d use today as a way to close off Pride month by talking a bit about myself… What? I’m proud of being a geek. Oh and I’m also proud of being an openly gay geek.

*P.S: Please don’t be mean to Joel, I was kidding.

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!

The One Liner Challenge

The One Liner Challenge is a blog challenge set up by The Awkward Book Blogger, which actually is a little bit different. Instead of answering questions about yourselves, as a blogger, you try to make one-liners, either funny or as a summary of at least five books, manga, anime or games. I’m not huge on these blog games, but considering the types of articles we write here at GeekOut South-West, I thought it was a rather good idea. So for once, I’m taking part in a blogger challenge – and this is going to be a lot of fun.

Anime Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

A world ravaged by vampires and ancient men of power, powerful Hamon energy must be harnessed to defeat the evil undead. When Hamon isn’t enough, the powerful mental companions known as Stands take centrestage. The world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is everything its namesake would have you believe – It’s an adventure and hoo boy, is it bizarre. From beautifully manly men, to the most dangerous of manipulators, JoJo, or whichever variant of JoJo we’re talking about, has to rid the world of an evil that plagues the Earth.

But enough about that, is the anime actually any good?
