Otaku Evolution Episode 218 - The Big O

 

I'm not having as much fun making anime review videos as I used to. A lot of it is because my videos keep getting blocked on YouTube. As soon as I start getting some views, bam, I have to start all over again. Maybe you can't see it, but I put a lot of effort into these videos and it's heartbreaking to do have to keep re-editing them for YT standards. If things keep up like this, I'm seriously considering quitting and sticking to written reviews. Not that anybody reads them.

Otaku Evolution Episode 217 - Lupin III: Episode 0: First Contact

I'm happy to review my favorite Lupin III TV special, Episode 0: First Contact. Actually, it's one of my favorite Lupin features period, and one of my favorite anime movies. It's got everything I'm looking for in a Lupin feature: a great heist, excellent character balance, spot-on action and comic beats, a living atmosphere, good tone, and enjoyable music. It's a blast from start to finish, hitting all the right emotional notes. Fortunately, Discotek recently had this dubbed into English and put on Blu-Ray. I jumped at the chance to do a video on this.

Otaku Evolution Episode 216 - AD Police Files

I'm typing this in a particularly irate mood, because I'm sick, a package I've been waiting for is late (despite having paid extra to get it early), and several of my videos have been blocked on YouTube. There's not a whole lot of good tidings to give today. I'm just as liable to put a cigarette out in your eye socket. And I don't even smoke.
