FEATURED ANIME
Vadim recommends Erased [Boku Dake ga Inai Machi] (continuing)
“The winter 2016 season is upon us and there are some titles that I am personally really excited about. But I would say the most hype is around the show: “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi” or Erased in English.
The story revolves around this 29 year old guy who has this ability to rewind time if he gets a vision that something bad is about to occur. Usually he rewinds time back by 1-5 minutes and helps prevent the incident, but not this time.
This time he is faced with a case that has happened to himself when he was a kid and was never closed. And what’s worse, it is happening again, when he is an adult already. So his ability rewinds time much further back then normal, back to when he was a grade schooler.
If you like time travel and murder mysteries, then I would highly recommend you watch Erased.”

FEATURED MANGA
Phill recommends Tokyo Ghoul [Tokyo Kushuu]
“I’m sure many of you now have heard of Tokyo Ghoul/Toukyou Kushu, Ishida Sui’s story about the transformation of once human Ken Kaneki into a monstrosity known as a ghoul and his coming to terms with it. The story is full of well-drawn gruesome fight scenes. Each character you meet on the way has their own unique story and the characterisation of every character (Kaneki especially) are amazing to experience as the plot unfolds. I highly recommend that you read the manga first or even instead of the anime. The anime omits many important scenes that shape the characters within the series and the order of events is also quite different. Tokyo Ghoul is one of those series that I have stayed up til 3 in the morning reading and I can’t recommend it enough!”
