The most feared assassin in the world Golgo 13

by -

I'll start with the best part about this show it's story. Golgo 13 is known by the crime, espionage, and political world as the best assassin for hire. He's never failed a job and has a perfect shot. He has dangerous rivals, if a client disobeys Golgo's rules, they'll pay for it dearly. This TV series is based on episodes from the Golgo 13 graphic novel series from Takao Saito and Saito Productions. None of the episodes are a direct "sequel" to each other.







The animation isn't the best around, but it is highly detailed. The animators did a superb job of taking the graphic novel art style and making it look modern and clean. The VA is what id'e say is the worst part of the show. For the most part it's very high end, but around the later episodes it goes downhill. Just comes at inappropriate times and throws the mood of the show off. Still a great classic that stays true to it's manga counter-part.

Campy, entertaining, and suspenseful.

I always liked the Golgo 13: an all-business assassin, kinda like a Japanese James Bond but much more cold. I guess the best way to describe this newer anime adaptation would be that it's campy, but still manages to build suspense and drama, and ends up being very entertaining. I wouldn't get hung up on the details of guns and marksmanship, this is about Golgo being a badass and making sure nobody crosses him.







Each episode is its own story so there's a nice wrap-up at the end and you aren't left hanging if you watch in short bursts. If you're a fan of seedy crime drama and a heavy emphasis on what seems like a throwback to classic TV storytelling with all the occasional silliness that brings, you'll enjoy all 50 episodes.







As a blu-ray the biggest disappointment I had was that the discs aren't titled and they have no preview image if your disc player displays them. The discs themselves are distinct with their own separate art of Golgo in various poses.
