If you extract feelings of nostalgia and comfort from old 80's anime due to their vaporwave / outrun aesthetic, Midnight Eye: Gokuu is going to be a welcome treat to your senses. The animation is beautiful, and there are enough boobs and fast cars to go around as well. The story isn't mind-blowing, but it's not awful. A solid way to spend an evening.

This is where things get weird. As Goku digs deeper, he sneaks into the bad guy's base, which is complete with a giant, a half-naked dog-like motorcycle-hybrid woman who shoots pink lasers from her mouth, and robot mosquitoes equipped with anesthesia. ...
