Otaku Evolution Episode 231 - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Part 1)

Another year of Otaku Evolution begins with a look at the 2009 64-episode TV series, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, the longest title I've covered thus far in these videos. It's a series that is near and dear to my heart, so I'm happy to get the chance to talk about it. I'm actually somewhat surprised that it took me this long to get to it. But then again, I've already reviewed most of my favorite anime, and maybe it was a good idea not to review this one too soon. After this, I don't know if there are any favorites left! Black Lagoon, I guess. I'll get to that later.

 

Otaku Evolution Episode 230 - Year End English Dub Review IX

One final video for 2022, folks! As usual with my last video of the year, I go over the various English dubs of the anime I've covered in roughly the second half of the year. I think the best dub was Solid State Society's and the weakest Babel II - Beyond Infinity's which is amusing, because I covered those anime originally in that order. But even the weakest anime dub of the bunch still had solid talents, just a lack of commitment to the characters. Most of the dubs I covered were at least decent.

Listen here, you fucking degenerates. I know what you're doing, indulging in every act of debauchery and overindulgence this holiday season. So maybe you can take the time, while you're not boozing it up with your good time gang or drowning your sorrows in a full store-bought pie, to watch my little (half hour) video about my top 10 favorite anime characters. I can already feel the bile rising in my throat as I picture all the amazing fun you're having NOT contributing to my Patreon or subscribing to my channel and it sickens me to the core. So sit down, shake off that eggnog high, and watch this video, damn it, I worked really hard on it!

Otaku Evolution Episode 228 - Lupin III Part I

It's the oldest anime I've reviewed here on Otaku Evolution, and the oldest in my collection, 1971's Lupin III Part I, the original Lupin TV series! I'm super happy to get to talk about this groundbreaking show, it's mood change, and how fun the whole thing can be (and how lame it can be, too). I'm also thrilled that it's finally been dubbed into English with a voice cast I adore. But whether or not you watch it dubbed or in its original Japanese, you're going to have a good time with these hilarious heists... usually. So this Thanksgiving season, stuff yourself with a cornucopia of fun, as I take a look at an anime classic.
