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...

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 Episode 01 – The Kids are Doin’ Alright

Body: 

Wow. It’s been a year hasn’t it? These upstart rapscallions, once on the verge of utter defeat, now are the biggest names in both the regular and black market. Unlike the last serial Gundam series that had two seasons (Gundam 00), Iron-Blooded Orphans kicks off without any big down note where our heroes are in a lesser position of power than before. After the well-deserved victory they scored last season, they need this moment to shine, and shine they did.

Otaku Evolution Episode 74 - Patlabor 2: The Movie

Body: 

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.

The Vision of Escaflowne Episode 25 – Duel of Fates

Body: 

Oh boy, this is an episode I’ve been looking forward to. The penultimate episode of Escaflowne is one of those kinds of episode that does its best to try and wrap up just about every lingering character arc. In a show like Escaflowne where its end is pretty darn definitive, this is both a necessary and proper venture. However, does it go a good job in that regard and we’re left satisfied in the end of it? Well, yes and no. I’ve never been really gaga about this episode, even if I’m aware of the momentous events occurring in it, and even after so many years since my last watch of it, it still remains.

Otaku Evolution Episode 73 - Macross Plus

Body: 

I've really painted myself into a corner this year with Otaku Evolution, covering so many of my favorite anime (like this one), there's not a whole lot of the best I can review (or at least not a whole lot I can monetize reviews for). But nevertheless, it was great revisiting Macross Plus and confirming that not only does it completely hold up, but it's still one of the best mecha anime. But what else could it be with that pedigree? Shinichiro Watanabe, Keiko Nobumoto, Ichiro Itano, Yoko Kanno, and for the English dub, Bryan Cranston! Few other anime could satisfy my need for great anime to review for this year's Action Channel Month quite like this! It's so crazy good, you'll hear "Voices"!
