Otaku Evolution Episode 108 - Year End English Dub Review IV

It's been quite a year here on Otaku Evolution. Shuffling videos from platform to platform because of Copyright Dragons, re-recording reviews for quality, reaching my 100th episode, and just generally being exhausted and largely unsuccessful. I may have extended my viewer base, though, which means I think now... *checks notes* 12 people regularly watch these. Maybe by this time next year, I'll have 16! Grabbing for that brass ring.

 

But anyway, as usual, this is a review of the English dubs for the anime I covered since my Mid Season English Dub Review plus some of that wonderful bookend material I love to afflict upon myself and others. Flying fortresses! Penguins! Plot threads from my old comic strips nobody will remember!

 

At least none of the dubs were too bad. Or is that a shame? I can't tell.

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

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!
