    Slayers Return

    ★★★★★

    Aside from running for five seasons, Slayers also spawned five animated films, the second of which is Slayers Return. Unlike the anime series, none of the movies (except for the last one) feature Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadis, or most of the characters Lina meets during the show.

    Sword Art Online: The Movie - Ordinal Scale

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I have been waiting months for this film to arrive and once it did, oh my gosh, it was absolutely worth the wait!!

    Ordinal Scale is the first full length film set in the world of Sword Art Online, an anime that begins with the tale of 10,000 gamers trapped in a virtual reality “death game” called Sword Art Online (SAO). Of the original 10,000, only 4,000 made it out alive, among them Kirito, his girlfriend Asuna, Klein, Silica, Liz…
