Synopsis

Golgo 13 is not his real name. Then again, neither is Duke Togo, Tadashi Togo, or any number of the aliases he goes by. A man of mystery, not even the world’s most prominent intelligence agencies can determine who Golgo really is, or just where he came from. But all agree that his skills are nothing short of legendary.

Armed with a custom M16, Golgo is willing to take any job for any agency, from the FBI to the KGB. He has completed every contract he has ever taken and will work for anyone who can meet his price. He is both the greatest weapon and the greatest threat to any nation; no one is safe once they are in Golgo’s sights.

Verdict
Jul 18, 2008
As I finally came across the entire subtitled series, it is time to update the review I posted quite some time ago.

To start with, this is an anime that gives off an oldschool-ish feeling and that is to be expected, since the manga started publishing about 40 years ago. The drawing style clearly shows it: all characters have very serious and rough faces, showing each and every wrinkle. The scenery is quite good. Even though it might lack detail, it clearly isn't the type you would shove off as a picture-based-and-streched-over-the-horizon background.

There are no major problems with the sound either. At first it might read more

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

"Cyka Bylat!" -Russian CS:GO Players

If you face this guy in CS:GO, well good luck killing him, whether you're afar from him, doing some sneaky attacks to him, gangbanging him (#NoHomo), and other tactics that you considered to be good but in Golgo 13's case, you're actually dead wrong.

Golgo 13 is an seinen anime about a man name Duke Togo who is a former agent now a lone wolf who likes to play cosplay and stealth like Agent 47 and his main agenda, headshotting those persons who are in Golgo 13's contract.

Golgo 13 is one of the most feared sniper of all time according to some read more

Based off the Motion Picture and OVA, this series is a great stand alone series to watch. I really liked the Movie and OVA of Golgo 13 so the series is quite entertaining to watch. I have only watched 4 episodes so far, so the storyline and character development hasn't really begun yet. Each episode or "Target" is a seperate story each week so nothing too serious has begun in terms of a dedicated storyline as of yet. It's a great series to pick up, great animation, music and action. I hope it picks up more with a storyline and more development, but for now read more
