Otaku Evolution Episode 211 - Favorite Anime Directors

So I sort of gave up on doing specifically Christmas-themed videos, because I couldn't really find much more Christmas-related anime to review. And it was getting old, anyway. So here's the new tradition: anime lists! This time around, it'll be on my favorite anime directors. There's no particular order or hierarchy here, just seven directors I especially appreciate.

Merry Christmas!

Synopsis:

Comments: Lupin and Fujiko are both competing to get the valuable Jet-Black Diamond. The clues to its location are hidden in kokeshi dolls, one hidden in a cavern, another in the possession of an elderly woman whose granddaughter keeps her company. The action takes to Brazil, where Fujiko hones in on the treasure, but it seems like there's more (and less) to it than she thought. What is the secret of the Jet-Black Diamond? It's a hunt peppered with mystery!

Otaku Evolution Episode 210 - Lupin III: Dead or Alive

As we come close to the end of the year, I want to touch upon the Lupin III franchise again, this time covering something actually good. The theatrical anime, Dead or Alive, is hardly the greatest Lupin adventure, but it's certainly one of the better ones, especially compared to the last one I reviewed, Farewell to Nostradamus. Monkey Punch himself directed this one! Well, kind of. He mostly just worked on the opening sequence and probably consulted through the rest of it, leaving the bulk of the work to the Chief Director, Hiroyujki Yano, and the rest. But it certainly has that somewhat darker, sharper Monkey Punch Lupin touch to it.
