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.
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!

What happens when you get the incomparable talent of Yoshikazu Yasuhiko to adapt the characters of the hit sci-fi books of Haruka Takachiho?
