Filling in ‘Akira’

Released in 1988, the manga adaptation from creator Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira has remained one of the many spearheads in anime, reaching critical acclaim and gained a cult following, many of which, who are critics and fans, consider Akira to be Otomo’s magnum opus.

Filling in ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’

Blue is the Warmest Colour caused a storm of reaction upon its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013, and it’s not hard to see why: the French romantic drama that follows a teenager named Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) exploring her sexuality through a fiery relationship with a blue-haired art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux) has been […]Read More
