‘In Another World With My Smartphone’ Blu-ray Review

by Xenia Grounds

Allow me to share a little of my reviewing history with you guys. My first ever anime review was the first season of Sword Art Online. In that review, I mentioned that every now and then, a show, movie, game or series comes along that divides people. Some will love it while the other side […]
