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.

Otaku Evolution Episode 80 - Lupin III: The Columbus Files

Body: 

Time to look at those robbery rascals, those lavish larcenists, the Lupin gang, with the TV special, 1999's The Columbus Files (originally Love's Da Capo: Fujiko's Unlucky Days)! Honestly, it's not Lupin III's finest hour. Or Fujiko's. Or director Shinichi Watanabe's. To say the least!

*****SPOILERS*****

Synopsis: Lupin jets off to Japan when it seems like Fujiko's in danger, but as usual, it's a ruse by her to get him to steal something for her.

It's a contest of deception as the woman called Fujiko Mine shows she's every bit as formidable as the man who loves her!
