Review: Sailor Moon R – The Movie (DVD)

Sailor Moon R: The Movie was a pivotal moment of discovery as a Sailor Moon fanboy in the 90s.

Review: Gunstar Heroes OST (Vinyl)

Gunstar Heroes, one of Treasure’s most revered games, is often lauded for its graphics and astonishingly great gameplay. The first time I ever played the game was in 1993 – Anime Inferno co-founder Inferno and I wheeled our bikes around to our local independent rental haunt, Power Play, and lo-and-behold, there was Gunstar Heroes in […]
