About Vincent

Vincent realised he was a lifelong nerd the moment he printed out his own Sailor Moon t-shirt at the age of 16 and wore it to school.

Now an adult (allegedly) he's one of the hosts of anime podcast Transformation Sequence where he applies psychoanalytics and epistemology to school girls stabbing monsters.

And yes, he now has an entire selection of Sailor Moon t-shirts.


We return to the world of Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars) and review his most recent work.

Ren has recently lost his mother. Placed into the care of his cold and distant relatives, he decides to run away to the streets of Shibuya, only to stumble upon an alternate world filled with manimals. A contender for godship, Kumatetsu, takes Ren in as a disciple of the sword, but how can such different people learn to live with each other?
