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!

Otaku Evolution Episode 95 - Ninja Nonsense

Body: 

Anime comedies are a strange beast. Not only can they be completely outside of Western cultural context, but oftentimes they're heavily rewritten by the dub studio the licensor employs for NA release. So, that in mind, how does an anime like Ninja Nonsense, which is fairly faithfully dubbed hold up in the humor department? I'll take a look at it in this video. Also, I guess there's some kind of flashback and an extra bit at the end. If Pen Pen is holding the camera, how is all that extra footage getting recorded? Hm.

Otaku Evolution Episode 94 - Golgo 13: Queen Bee

Body: 

We come to the end of Dezaki Month in this episode with a review of Golgo 13: Queen Bee, Dezaki's second (and final) Golgo feature. From the greatest thief, to the greatest doctor, to the greatest assassin, we've sure had a journey, huh? Here we see the silent silencer take on a group of guerillas, a band of mercenaries, and corrupt politicians. Oh, and for some reason, everybody's banging in this. Expect to see Censor Penguin.

Otaku Evolution Episode 93 - Black Jack (OVA) (Episodes 1-2)

Body: 

Dezaki Month continues with the first two episodes of an anime OVA that pits Tezuka's mysterious black-garbed unlicensed surgeon against a strange disease that dessicates and the latest drug epidemic: wacky cacty (cacti)! All the while he exposes a young girl made out of a teratoma to the gruesome disfigurements of his patients or keeps her trapped in a cabin. Huh, that really paints this as a different kind of anime, doesn't it? Black Jack isn't some creep, but that doesn't stop a wide range of ladies from throwing themselves at him. And he gives them the D... octoring.

Otaku Evolution Episode 92 - Lupin III: Pursuit of Harimao's Treasure

Body: 

It's the beginning of Dezaki Month here on Otaku Evolution! What happens when you pit the world's greatest thieves against the world's greatest (retired) secret agent and throw in some Neo-Nazi scum? You have canal chases, slide puzzle-traps, grabby tourist children, train and helicopter fights, jet packs, submarines, and dipictions of queerness of both the subtle and problematic! It's Dezaki's last Lupin effort, but is it any good? Find out in this episode of OE!

Otaku Evolution Episode 91 - Mobile Suit Gundam III (Movie)

Body: 

Live (taped) from a secluded Antarctic base's officer's club, it's my review of the final movie in the original Mobile Suit Gundam movie trilogy! Featuring state-of-the-art animation techniques (lol) and all-star cast of nobodies! I talk a bit about Newtypes, call out Sayla Mass for her lack of awareness, show a mess of clips from the Gundam franchise, all of which I had to shorten frustratingly, and actually utilize more than two sound effects! So strap into your mobile suits and step onto the launch platform, it's time to finish off the One Year War!
