While it does work for a while, their pursuers from the dark web decide it's a great way to target them with an all-star lineup of assassins! Can Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, and their new friend Ami evade the murderous monsters... and stay relevant? Let's hope at least one of the two!

Lupin III Part V Episode 01 Review

Body: 

Episode 01, "The Girl in the Twin Towers"

*****SPOILERS*****

Synopsis:  Lupin III refuses to fall behind the times, looking to abscond with a cache of cyrpto-currency. Unfortunately, as well-prepared as he is, he runs into a little obstacle - the key to the treasure is a young woman named Ami and her hacking skills well exceeds his. Fortunately, or unfortunately as it may be, Ami herself wants to be stolen away from the life of working for drug dealers, and while Lupin obliges, he finds himself being hunted by far more people than he expected! A très bien new chapter in Lupin's adventures begins!

 

Otaku Evolution Episode 112 - Crusher Joe: The Ice Prison

Body: 

For whatever reason, it took me a lot longer to make this twelve minute long review video than it really should have. Partly because I don't really feel like my videos are even appreciated, but also I was sick and I went days barely working on it. But here you go, anyway, my review of the first Crusher Joe OVA feature, The Ice Prison, which is just the right amount of Crusher Joe and just the quality I was looking for: exciting and brief.

Maybe I'm just trying to delay my next video subject... ugh.

Otaku Evolution Episode 111 - Coyote Ragtime Show

Body: 

In this episode, wherein I spent a lot of time on that bookend material probably nobody appreciates (and likely because a lot of it is a callback to a long since deceased comic strip I did), I take on the 2006 action-scifi title, Coyote Ragtime Show! It's pretty much cut from the same cloth as similar shows (that were out of vogue by the time this came out), just not the best part of that cloth. Still, it's good for at least one watch, has some poignant moments, and gothic lolita robots with guns. Who can ask for more? Everybody, but watch this anyway.

Otaku Evolution Episode 110 - 801 T.T.S. Airbats

Body: 

What happens when you take Patlabor, switch the robots to planes, reverse the male-to-female ratio, and file off the serial number? Well, you'd probably still get something a bit better than 801 TTS Airbats, which, while having excellent aerial scenes, and some character potential, falls somewhat short of the runway. But hey, more Penguinopolis Mk II stuff in this video, so you can enjoy that, at least.

Otaku Evolution Episode 109 - Space Cruiser Yamato (Movie)

Body: 

The first English-language bastardization of Space Battleship Yamato, Space Cruiser Yamato, a recut version of the compilation version of the first TV series, is quite a ride. A ride into mediocrity, with its truncated, if not entirely decimated character development and simplistic plot summarizing. And you know how I hate people who just boil down long works into a neat package, as if to comment on them with faux-wry humor for an audience of captive idiots too lazy to watch a whole TV series.

I mean, I just hate that. Hate it.

Otaku Evolution Episode 108 - Year End English Dub Review IV

Body: 

It's been quite a year here on Otaku Evolution. Shuffling videos from platform to platform because of Copyright Dragons, re-recording reviews for quality, reaching my 100th episode, and just generally being exhausted and largely unsuccessful. I may have extended my viewer base, though, which means I think now... *checks notes* 12 people regularly watch these. Maybe by this time next year, I'll have 16! Grabbing for that brass ring.

 

But anyway, as usual, this is a review of the English dubs for the anime I covered since my Mid Season English Dub Review plus some of that wonderful bookend material I love to afflict upon myself and others. Flying fortresses! Penguins! Plot threads from my old comic strips nobody will remember!

 

At least none of the dubs were too bad. Or is that a shame? I can't tell.
