How Dragon Ball Super: Broly Succeeds by Doing Nothing Surprising and Everything Predictably – Review

Frequent readers of my blog will have probably been waiting for this post with bated breath; but probably not. It’s hard to miss that I talk about Dragon Ball a hell of a lot on here, so an inevitable review of Dragon Ball super: Broly was only ever a matter of time.

How Dragon Ball Super: Broly Succeeds by Doing Nothing Surprising and Everything Predictably - Review

I feel like I should count myself lucky that I actually got to see this movie at all to be honest. My local cinema only decided to arrange a single showing of the dubbed movie, and while I booked my ticket well, well in advance, they still only screened it on one of their smaller screens. They even turned a hell of a lot of people away at the doors.

Wooderon Anime of the Year 2018: #1

Thus we come to the close on my first ever top ten anime of the year list. I think it went well… Although it made me realise that I watched a lot less anime this year than I thought I did. Sure, I watched a wider variety of shows than I probably ever have done before. But compared to just how many shows are out there to watch, I only really scraped the surface. It’s a start I feel happy with though, I discovered some new stuff and am looking forward to see what I can introduce myself to in 2019.

Wooderon Anime of the Year 2018: #1

Before I get ahead of myself talking about brand new anime in 2019, there is still a matter of the number one entry on my 2018 list. This entry; it probably one of the farthest from new anime in my personal books. If anyone who has been keeping up with my blog in any capacity is hopping for a surprise here, you’re barking up the wrong tree. This is a predictable entry for me, and at a point I was going to be apologetic about it. But what’s the point in being apologist when it comes to an obvious winner?

For the final time, let’s sum up my entire top ten list for 2018:

#10: Goblin Slayer

#9: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

#8: The Ancient Magus’ Bride

#7: Golden Kamuy

#6: Attack on Titan

#5: Hinamatusri

#4: Megalo Box

#3: Lupin the Third: Part V

#2: My Hero Academia

Wooderon Games of the Year 2018: #7

It’s Christmas Eve, by this point in the process I’d really hope that my entire list is written, wrapped and ready to go up while I sleep and recover from the busiest week in retailing. Historically though, I’d kill myself writing these and then always end up putting some portion of my best of year blogs late. We’ll see how things fair this year, because it’s so far so good.

Wooderon Games of the Year 2018: #7

Today’s number seven entry is something of a throwback for me. A game I found myself looking at for weeks and weeks before eventually saying screw it and picking it up just a couple of weeks ago. Had I played it as soon as it came out, then maybe it would have been higher, but even just 20 hours in, I adore this game and really needed to include it on my list.

Before we get to that, here’s the list as it stands thus far:

#10: Dead Cells

#9: Into the Breach

#8: Dragon Ball FighterZ
