Anime Review Roundup
Saga of Tanya the Evil has enough going for it to make it worth your while.

No Game, No Life Zero is the prequel feature film to the show, and once again I was compelled to upgrade it from DVD to BD.

With this re-watch, I’ve come to the realisation that Muttsulini is my favourite character.
Manga Entertainment release Saga of Tanya the Evil on Blu-ray and on DVD today. MVM released No Game, No Life Zero on BD and DVD back in 2019.
