Otaku Evolution Episode 117 - Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan

Body: 

 

My final entry in this year's Dragon Ball Month is the eighth Dragon Ball Z movie, that one with the mountain of muscles who dumb people seem to enjoy. Seriously, Broly is a complete waste, because he's not even really a character. He's such a two(at best)-dimensional villain, and yet they give him this back story to try to get us to sympathize, or at least understand. Sorry, but that only works for characters with personalities. With Broly, it's just a lot of wasted potential. Granted, at least they tried, but maybe they should have shifted that effort into giving him something that defines his role, aside from a lot of screaming, and cry-induced insanity. Sure, most DBZ movie villains are shallow, even in the better movies, but this is a case of aiming high and falling low.

Lupin III Part V Episode 12 Review

Body: 

Episode 12, "The Etravagance of Goemon Ishikawa XIII"

 

*****SPOILERS*****

Synopsis:  Goemon finds himself in a quaint village looking for the owner of a jewel Lupin wants. The jewel's owner, Chloé, runs a struggling bistro and Goemon keeps surveillance on her, saving her from others wanting the treasure. But the more he gets to know the town and its people, especially Chloé, the harder it gets for him to snatch the item. Can Goemon overcome his feelings and pull the job off or will Lupin have to finish it for him? It's con vs con during a con, as our favorite modern samurai walks among the cosplay crowd!

Otaku Evolution Episode 116 - Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone

Body: 

I had to move this video to BitChute because Toei is run by assholes.

 

I really should cut down on these long pre-credit and post-credit sequences, and I'll probably do that soon, but for now, I spend days meticulously putting them together. It makes me appreciate animation more, because they're barely animated, just a step or two above a slide show. I don't know if I intended them to continue story ideas from my comic strips (which frankly, I can't see anybody getting unless they read them, which nobody did) or they're there to provide atmosphere/pad runtime. I both love and loathe making them. Perhaps I simply want to show off. But if I didn't, I wouldn't be making these videos at all.

Otaku Evolution Episode 115 - Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies

Body: 

 

Yikes, this one's pretty short. Introducing Dragon Ball Month on Otaku Evolution, where I comb through some of the movies and try to find the spirit of the source material in the midst of "original" stories. Here I start with the first Dragon Ball movie, Curse of the Blood Rubies, and you'll understand why the video's short, because the movie is less than an hour long. So I padded it with that wonderful book end storyline nonsense that nobody appreciates but me. There's still a review in there, though, it's not just a summary with quips.

 

For the most part, anyway.
