Otaku Evolution Episode 77 - Goku Midnight Eye

Body: 

This month I'm doing a Yoshiaki Kawajiri theme, kicking it off with a two-part OVA based on a work by Buichi Terasawa (creator of Space Adventure Cobra), Goku Midnight Eye! He doesn't have a cloud to fly on and he can't become Super Saiyan Blue, but this Goku does have an extending bo like a certain other Goku! Add to that his ability to basically dominate technology, and you have... well, kind of an OP hero, who somehow still struggles. But hey, at least he can make a boss car.

Otaku Evolution Episode 76 - Paranoia Agent

Body: 

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!

Otaku Evolution Episode 75 - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA (2000)

Body: 

In this episode of my barely-watched anime review video series, I take a look at the 2000 OVA of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, which adapts Part III of the larger metaseries, Stardust Crusaders. Though oddly enough, only the first half, since the second half was animated in 1993. Yeah, so I'm reviewing in chronological order of the storyline, rather than the production order here. But what are these flashes of memories I'm getting about my first meeting with Pen Pen? Something tells me there's a need for a TO BE CONTINUED...

Otaku Evolution Episode 72 - Appleseed (Movie)

Body: 

It's the return of Action Channel Month, here on Otaku Evolution, with a review of the first Appleseed movie! Does this CG film based off the manga by Shirow Masamune hold up after all these years? Well... it doesn't look any worse than the latest Berserk stuff. Man, can they ever get Berserk right in animation? FFS. But back to Appleseed, join me as I take a look at a movie that has zero reason to exist aside from visual spectacle! Well, that's actually the only reason any Appleseed productions exist now. Just sit back and relax while I throw sarcastic barbs and mildly clever quips at this showcase piece that nobody cares about. So, the usual!

Otaku Evolution Episode 71 - Arcade Gamer Fubuki

Body: 

Stack those quarters up and grab a slice, because we're gonna get the controls greasy and play... er, I mean watch, a little ecchi comedy called Arcade Gamer Fubuki, about a girl whose panties give her the ability to GIT GUD. Japan, you're so forward-thinking, a girl gamer who doesn't mind showing off the goods. Empowered by her underwear, literally! Progress marches ever onward. Also, for some reason, she's friends with Excel from Excel Saga (or, at least a character played by her).

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.
