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!

A trio of troublesome terrorists are bound by law (and bomb collars) to apprehend criminals and uphold justice in a future near dystopia where the military uses citizens as test subjects and cyborg sabertooth tigers stalk in cyronics laboratories! Meet Sengoku, Goggle, and Benten, three members of the Cyber Police on a leash by a hardassed warden and chief. If they lose their heads in duty, they might lose their heads for real!
In my spooky Halloween episode for 2016 (a very frightening year!), I don't go for ghouls and ghosts, nor zombies and witches, but a monster borne from the very human mind and the cultural around us! But what does this say about my own demons? It's about time Satoshi Kon got his due on my show as I take a look at Paranoia Agent!
Action Channel Month this year ends with one of my favorite anime movies, Patlabor 2! Mamoru Oshii directed this taut political thriller with just a liiiiitle bit of giant robot action! Watch the best two characters of the franchise tackle a mystery and a madman with Oshii's usual downbeat flair. I hope you're expecting a more thematic and character-oriented review, because I think this movie is deserving of it.
