KOKO-DI KOKO-DA Review

With its threadbare plot, gobsmackingly frustrating characters, and dull time-loop mechanic, Koko-Di Koko-Da is a test of one’s patience more than it is a meditation on grief.

Fantasia 2020: KAKEGURUI Review

Continuing the long-standing trend of Japanese manga adaptations that center on a high school that specializes in some specific subject, Kakegurui is a high-energy farce about a posh private academy that’s composed of spoiled rich kids obsessed with gambling.
