Otaku Evolution Episode 70 - Heroic Legend of Arslan (OVA) (Episodes 3-4)

Body: 

Ugh. Do you know how many times I had to tweak "Adagio for Strings" so it wouldn't be flagged by YouTube? Three times. I guess that specific performance was licensed. Don't forget folks, that despite classical music being largely public domain, the people who actually perform it tend to have contracts and copyrights and such. I only needed a few seconds, though, FFS.

 

Anyway, enjoy my second look into the OVAs for The Heroic Legend of Arslan, based on the books by the dude who made Legend of the Galactic Heroes! Surely it is just as good, though, right? Riiiight? (No.)

 

Otaku Evolution Episode 69 - Baccano!

Body: 

In this special episode for my birthday, I've decided to cover a favorite anime of mine (though, I've already covered four favorites this year, kind of being easy on myself), Brain Base's Baccano!, based on a series of Japanese light novels written by Ryohgo Narita. I also did a bunch of difficult production flourishes and animations for this one, so I'd appreciate feedback (read: praise). What happens when a bunch of gangsters, thieves, and psychos vie for control of a train? Well, find out! It's the show that skips around in time but is always compelling, and I think you'll be satisfied by what you see.

Otaku Evolution Episode 68 - Mid Year English Dub Review II

Body: 

Can you believe it took me three weeks to make this video? It's that damn casino opening thing. Honestly, I originally planned for it to be longer, but I made my point, which was atmosphere. In comparison, my commentary on the English dubs of anime I've covered this year, is pretty miniscule. But I covered my bases, talking about dub studios like Animaze, Bang Zoom, and Funimation. Who knew that Animaze produced such crummy dubs at one time? Well, I did, but I'm sharing it with you! Also, what is with my penguin pal? Some mighty suspicious doings are afoot!

Otaku Evolution Episode 67 - Yu Yu Hakusho: The Golden Seal

Body: 

I thought I'd dip my toe into the waters of long-running shonen action titles again by taking on a small portion of Yu Yu Hakusho! The episode was originally a little bit longer, and you can probably tell where a few cuts were made, but I have a time limit on my videos now, and it would have looked really pathetic split up into two parts just over a few seconds of content. So here we go! Next time I have a mid-year episode, and I still haven't even brainstormed ideas for that one. Sorry for falling behind!

Otaku Evolution Episode 66 - Spirited Away by elliott-morbell

 

It's the 2nd Year Anniversary of Otaku Evolution! (I'm still trying to get people to actually watch it.) In this episode, I'm reviewing Spirited Away, the Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli film! If you want to see me review more well-known, beloved classics like Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Black Lagoon, Trigun, Evangelion, or Giant Robo, I'm going to need your financial support! Please contribute to my Patreon!

Otaku Evolution Episode 64 - Black Magic M-66

Body: 

Of all the Masumune Shirow adaptations I could pick, why did I choose Black Magic M-66? Because it's short, it's quirky, and it's easy to review? Hm, yeah, probably. But also because I could actually monetize a video about it on YouTube. Be sure to contribute to my Patreon and maybe I'll review stuff like Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

Otaku Evolution Episode 63 - Yukikaze

Body: 

It's a much-delayed new episode of Otaku Evolution, starring myself, guest-starring Pen Pen, and special thanks to... I dunno, you maybe, if you contribute to my Patreon!  I take a look at strangely decently-CGed air battle-featured Sentō Yōsei Yukikaze, a five-part OVA that features some of the best aircraft in anime! Enjoy, rate, share, subscribe, etc.
