Episode 40, "Maze"
Episode 40, "Maze"
I have my reservations (Lupin is an adult series, they're not going to try to appeal to young kids, are they?), and I wish it was a new Takeshi Koike project (still waiting for that fourth movie), but I guess I'll check it out. I bet it'll be better than Part 6.
Episode 39, "Thunderclaps"
Synopsis: Reinhard receives a report of the arrival of Alfred von Landsberg and Leopold Schumacher on Odin. Hilda surmises its for a kidnapping plot, mostly likely involving the young Kaiser, Erwin Josef II. Upon his request to secure her property, Hilda visits his sister Annerose to get her permission. Annerose is reluctant, but is eventually persuaded to take on security. Reinhard has the Phezzani commissioner to the Empire come to his office, where he cuts through the bureaucrat's doublespeak and makes him admit to the plot at hand, which will give Reinhard cassus belli regarding the FPA. Reinhard demands Imperial passage through the Phezzan Corridor to achieve his goal.
Episode 38, "Determination and Ambition"
Synopsis: On Phezzan, Rubinsky reveals that he knows Rupert Kesserling is his biological son. Meanwhile, on Odin, Reinhard is incensed by the failure of the Geiersburg operation, only to reflect on it later and decide not to punish Mueller. Schaft, however, is arrested by Kesler for several infractions. Kempf's family mourns his death, while Reuenthal wonders if Reinhard is loyal enough to his subordinates. On Iserlohn, Yang reluctantly allows Julian to formally join the military. He reiterates his desire to be a historian.
Episode 37, "Fortress vs. Fortress Akt IV: Conclusion"
RahXephon was ostensibly influenced by the 1975 anime Brave Raideen. But if you've seen Neon Genesis Evangelion, and then this show, you cannot (and I did not) avoid comparing the two. It frankly baffles me that some people see this as a better show than Evangelion, though, because it's not actually about anything. What are the actual themes of RahXephon? Aside from playing lip service to music/sound as a reoccurring element, there's not a whole lot to the show. It's decent, but not transcendent the way Evangelion is.
Ah, the Trigun movie, Badlands Rumble. It's fun. And that's about all I can say about it. There's really nothing significant in its premise or execution. It's just a filler episode with high production values. Come to think of it, the Cowboy Bebop movie was like that, too, but it seemed much more significant and well-constructed. It had more of a beating heart to it. Plus, it was Cowboy Bebop, so it was already going to be better. Which is why that movie is in my favorites and Badlands Rumble is not. But it's not a waste of time, at least. And after the subject of my previous video, I needed that.
Babel II - Beyond Infinity is a show that could have- no, should have- been better than it was. You have these characters with amazing psychic powers, giant robots, monsters, and ancient alien mythos (lol). But do they do anything with these elements? No! They waste them in Plain Jane, paint-by-numbers plots with nothing to say. Please, somebody save me from mediocre anime like this. I knew there was a reason I was putting this off. Just watch Giant Robo instead. Then rewatch it.
I'm getting tired of having my videos handicapped by overzealous IP holders and foreign licensors. I just want to do anime review videos, not show entire episodes or movies. Can't these greedy corporate cocksuckers give me a fucking break? I had to edit this video a bunch of times, if you can't notice. It boils my blood.
