Golgo 13 (2008)

Earlier in the month, I shelled out a pretty penny for the OOP DVD set of Golgo 13 so I wouldn’t have to endure the abysmal English dub, and honestly…I wasn’t disappointed. Still, I can’t believe they managed fifty episodes of “sex, violence, and making the same face irregardless of situation”, the series.

Golgo 13 in anime form is a treasure though; it seems rare to have an animated series so aggressively steeped in reality, and the studio’s adaptation of Takao Saito’s style is everything I could ask for and more.
