Russell Phillips


Russell has been a semi-regular reviewer for UK-Anime since 2005 [mainly specialising in non mainstream manga titles].

He has had an interest in Animé since childhood, with his induction to it back in the mid 80's via Osamu Tezuka's Space Firebird 2772 and Space Battleship Yamato. After a brief hiatus Russell was brought back into Animé in the early 90s, courtesy of manga UK's releases like Akira, The wings of Honneamise and Dominion tank police.

When not reviewing his other interests includes music collecting [his favorite genres including Jazz, classical and folk], tabletop RPG's and hiking.






Hiking, tabletop rpgs and collecting music [classical, folk, jazz]
