Otaku Evolution Episode 119 - Cowboy Bebop

Body: 

Hm, maybe I should have timed this better so it could be the 120th episode. 20th anniversary of the show, 120th episode, get it? Well, whatever, 119 will have to do.

 

Cowboy Bebop is an unvarnished work of genius, an exquisite blending of genres set to a multitude of rhythms. It's not defined by its genres, though, but by ingenuity in execution and emotional gravity. There's plenty of other reasons why it remains my favorite anime after so long.  So for my 35th birthday (what the fuck am I doing with my life?), I've decided to review this eternal classic of Japanese animation.

Otaku Evolution Episode 96 - Michiko & Hatchin

Body: 

Michiko & Hatchin is the story of an escaped convict, a put upon orphan, a corrupt cop with a crush, a violent psychopath, a deranged turncoat, and a missing lover and father. The chase is on in the fictional country of Diamandra (which is totally not Brazil), with Michiko determined to find Hiroshi, dragging his daughter Hana (Hatchin) along, and dogged Atsuko on their tail. Can they dodge the Monstro Preto gang and reach their goal? Not without a lot of (mis)adventures!

Zankyou no Terror - First Impressions

Body: 

 

Until I had actually watched the first episode of Zankyou no Terror (Terror in Resonance), the new original anime produced by MAPPA and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, I hadn't realized how little info I knew about the story. This turned out to be a good thing, since almost from the first second, the show was not what I expected and took me on a wild ride that was artistically hefty and more promising than any anime I have seen in a long time.
