Omake Banner

Lost on what to read/watch? We’ve got it all figured out! Here are this month’s hot picks by our fellow club members! If you’re interested in submitting your own review on an anime, manga or fan content, send us a message via Facebook and you can have your 5 minutes of fame in our Omake section~ :3

FEATURED ANIME
Zikang recommends Yumekui Merry
“Yumekui Merry is an anime. You should watch this anime because it is interesting. There are action scenes and colourful characters. It is also fairly obscure so it will give you street cred in the hipster anime community. It does not have a very compelling storyline, nor any real character development. What it does have is very memorable character design and a catchy soundtrack. A definite must watch for any aspiring anime aficionados.”

FEATURED MANGA
Joyce recommends Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari
“Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari (by Aneko Yusagi & Aiya Kyuu) subverts the classic Fantasy Hero genre from the very first chapter.  It starts off normally enough, with the protagonist Iwatani Naofumi picking up a random fantasy book in the library that is about some game-like land with four Heroes that defend some country from demons and whatnot.  Of course, Naofumi gets sucked into the country to become one of the Heroes – the Hero of the Shield.  However, whilst the other three Heroes get everything they want and an instant fan club, Naofumi gets practically nothing and only gets one follower, who promptly betrays him.  Left with nothing except his shield, Naofumi vows to wreak havoc and revenge the ones who betrayed him, completely ignoring his role as a Hero.  The manga is incomplete and has only a small number of chapters translated, but if you like fantasy, or want humour with a bit of a twist, or just want to stare at pretty art and pretty people, then check this out!”

FEATURED MERCHANDISE
Isaac recommends Cleaning Levi Nendoroid
“Do you guys love Levi from Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)??I KNOW I DO! So I recently purchased a Nendoroid of his cleaning version, you know, when he’s in his “clean freak” mode! xD Like most Nendoroids, he comes with interchangeable faces, a stand and several props; a duster, a broom, a cleaning mask, and even his own window to pop out from! すごいですね~ I’m having so much fun photographing him doing chores around the house so if you guys are into Nendoroids or a fan of AoT, I seriously suggest you invest your monies into this little hard worker as he’s also limited edition. PS. I bought mine from Anime@Abbotsford as they have a huge range to choose from~ :D I know I’ll be back for more!”
