Synopsis

Golgo 13 has been called a Japanese counterpart to James Bond, except with a darker character, a much more hardcore attitude towards sex, and a complete lack of morality. Golgo 13 is described as a mystery man of undetermined origin, possibility being at least part Japanese, who takes any assignment for any employer (it has been said he has worked for the CIA and the KGB) as long as the right price is given and will always fulfill his contracts, even if he has two or more opposing contracts at the same time. He is an uncanny sharpshooter, with near 100% accuracy and capable of lethal trick shooting, and regularly uses a customized, scoped M-16 rifle in his assassinations. He also is a heavy smoker of cigars.

The 2 Golgo movies are pretty legendary in terms of being pure 80s wicked fun (nudity, badass manly protagonist, unreal battle scenes), so I was quite eager to check out an actual 50 episode series of everyone's favorite Japanese Hitman: Mr Togo.

Let's cut to the chase: The series don't push the envelope of absurdity and fun to the same level that the films did. However, you do get quite a few moments during the series where you chuckle with pleasure at how again Togo fulfilled his assignment all the while still having time to drink his favourite whiskey and screwing a beautiful blonde.

Well the Final Episode has finally been subbed, so it feels like time for a full review. Welcome to Golgo 13, The epitome of anime manliness. A masterful sniper who can take out any target, from nearly any distance with a single shot.

Story: 6

Each episode is non-sequential, and has no bearing on future or previous episodes so you can essentially watch the episodes in no particular order and have more or less the same enjoyment. Each episode begins with Duke Togo aka Golgo 13, receiving a request to kill a target, and the rest of the episode usually involves Golgo 13 undertaking some read more

Phantom ~ Requiem For the Phantom is fanciful than Golgo 13, but both delve into the world of elite assassins. If you liked one, you may well want to consider the other.
Both are episodic series featuring a competent, cool protagonist.
