Golgo 13: Duke Togo

May 23, 2009

Wait…what? *rubbing eyes* Is this…is this shit real? Are you serious? Are you serious right now?! Oh fuck yeah. Sold. That’s all there is to it. Give me an M-16 that breaks down into a briefcase to go with it and I will literally murder in cold blood for this.

Live Action Cowboy Bebop? Survey Says: FUCK NO!

July 23, 2008

Ugh. Cowboy Bebop live action movie?! What a fucking huge kick in the dick. I can’t believe this shit. Okay maybe I can, I mean wasn’t Eva suppose to have a live action adaptation? Ugh, whatever. Bebop with no Shinichiro Watanabe? No Yoko Kanno? No thanks.

The live action movie will look similar to this.

Let’s Take It Back: Daytona 500

March 11, 2008

I really don’t have to say much about this. I mean this video pretty much has all the ingredients to make me go totally bonkers. It was Ghostface’s debut album, which was his best album to date and NOT Supreme Clientèle like almost everyone else seems to think. It was RZA on the obscure sampling tip, it was Rae, Cappa and Ghost verbally murdering said beat, it had the Force MD’s on the hook. And if that wasn’t enough, the video was fucking Speed Racer!

Oh by the way, did I mention the video was fucking Speed Racer?! Japanese Anime + Hardcore East Coast 90’s Hip Hop = My head exploding upon seeing this for the first time.

Gurren Lagann

February 23, 2008

It’s tough for me to warm up to giant robot anime. Reason being is that I must compare all of them to Neon Genesis Evangelion. I know how ridiculous that sounds, I mean just because I feel that Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is the best kung fu film of all time* doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be able to appreciate other kung fu films. Cause I do, but when it comes to watching other giant mecha anime, it’s hard for me to shake Eva from my consciousness. Yeah it’s absurd I know but I can’t help it.

If anyone can make me watch another one and have me give it a fighting chance, it’s Gainax. Anytime the name Gainax is attached to an anime, I make it a point to at the very least check it out. After such quality anime such as FLCL, His & Her Circumstances(or “Kare Kano” for all you geeky purists out there), Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, Gunbuster 2 and of course Evangelion, they have more than earned my trust. Except for Nadia, that was total crap.

So what’s Gurren Lagann about? I don’t really know. I figure it’s about giant robots which I assume will fight other giant robots. I’m sure there will be a love story of some sort. I’ll bet there will be some comedy elements and some fan service. Most likely someone will die. Oh and there’s this mole looking thing that seems to be the mascot of the series. The thing that they can make toys of and make millions of dollars from.

Does it really matter? All you really need to know is: it’s Gainax so the animation will be top notch, the character design will be really, really good, breasts will most definitely be bouncing and robots are cool. Sold. The first DVD of the series comes out in a few days. Buy it here.

*For the record Iron Monkey is my favorite kung fu film of all time.


Lupin x Cowboy Bebop

February 9, 2008

Arguably two of my favorite anime series getting the mash up. I love Lupin. I love Cowboy Bebop. I love Lupin getting the Bebop intro treatment. Props to whoever put this together. And for good measure, here’s the original Bebop intro. Seeing this makes me want to break out my DVD set and watch the whole series all over again. Has there ever been a cooler anime? Actually the question should be, “Has there ever been a cooler anime NOT done by Shinichiro Watanabe?” cause Champloo is right up there with Bebop.

Rebuild Of Evangelion

October 1, 2007

Rebuild Of Evangelion

Let it be known that Neon Genesis Evangelion is my favorite anime series of all time. I am of the camp that feels that it is something that should never be touched again, never be tampered with, never be continued and absolutely never be remade. So when I heard that it was being “re-imagined”(which is another way of saying “remade”) with the title “Rebuild of Evangelion”, I was fucking steaming. Like steam coming out of both ears just like in the cartoons STEAMING. When I saw that it was being put out by Gainax, it eased the blow a bit. When I found out that Hideaki Anno was involved in it as well and was actually the one spearheading it, that made me accept it. When I finally saw the trailer for it, I completely changed my mind on the whole thing and now am totally on board. I went from trying to sabotage the band wagon, to demand on being the one driving it.
