Inspector Zenigata did nothing wrong! 😤

Possibly one of the most lavish uses of CGI animation ever, Lupin III: The First is an absolute visual treat, full of joy and zaniness, a charming and old-fashioned adventure romp. It's an unspooling like a mashing of James Bond and Indiana Jones, but equally reminiscent of The Adventures of TinTin's stylings. The animation has fun playing with the laws of physics, it frees itself from the constraints of anatomy with gorgeous fluidity. Yes, the story may be rather straightforward and its twists are easy to predict, but it doesn't make the movie any less fun as the film manages ...

17 years later and Gamera is finally back on our screens! It's about damn time!

Hiroyuki Seshita has more than made up for the Godzilla anime trilogy with this. Granted the frankly awful 3D character models don't blend at all with the 2D backgrounds nor more stylistic kaiju designs but for what it's worth, the writing is actually rather decent despite the confused tone which can't decide if it wants to be for kids or adults. It constantly vibes like one of those 80s "band of kids go on an adventure" movies, e.g. The Goonies which is probably why I liked it so much, it also ...

I was originally gonna save this till tomorrow, but I thought, aw hell let's finish this now and thus I am concluding my little mini-marathon of the Golgo 13 movies with the belated sequel to The Professional, Queen Bee. I'd forgotten how much I liked this one as it's a fairly underappreciated and ambitious follow-up to its predecessor despite a massively reduced budget and much easier-to-follow plot. For being only an hour long, it doesn't waste a moment, it's a very harsh and gritty political thriller that keeps Golgo in the background as this omnipresent threat while the movie focuses heavily on the titular Queen ...

Golgo 13 (Anime) add
Before viewing the two live-action adaptations, this was the Golgo 13 I was most familiar with but even then, sitting down to rewatch The Professional after all these years certainly brought back some memories as before today I wouldn't have been able to tell you what on earth the plot of this movie was because I couldn't for the life of me remember. However, saying that there is one thing that has stuck with me over the years and that is the movie's incredible opening credits, easily one of my favourites ever combining the use of everything from stop motion to the first ever use ...

Arguably Calli's weakest song to date but still just as groovy and as much a feel good bop as the rest of her discography. There's still a lot to admire from her here be it the video, animation which looks great for what it is (not gonna win any awards especially in comparison to the likes of Mera Mera) or the actual lyrics, I think I'd still put CapSule near the top for the most part but that doesn't stop Let's End the World from being an absolute banger. Still waiting for the day she does another duet with the ID crew for a cover ...

Reflect (Anime) add
The Hololive ladies are many things but they most often than not forget that they are idols. Gura herself in a past life was a Meme Queen and dropped plenty of bangers left right and center, Reflect is no different.

While the song isn't really to my taste the video itself is godly so easily raises what is otherwise an okay song in my books to a different level entirely. Gotta give it to the EN ladies and Hololive in general, they can hold a note no matter what language they're speaking. No matter the age they hit different every time.

I mean I hate Evangelion already as many of you “lovely” people out there know and have responded with such “lovely” words in a manner befitting a human. So colour me surprised that this exists to basically just reinforce my justified hatred of the series. Why does it exist? No reason. Does it need to exist? No. Do I like it for existing? Yes. Why? It pissed off the fans who made my life a misery for many years and revenge is just sweet. I can rest easy knowing Anno has left this franchise far behind him to focus on bigger and better efforts, seriously, ...

The horny grandma pirate is back with another MV and of course this being Marine, she always delivers. Animation and sound is about the same quality as her previous MVs and shorts but this being way longer with plenty of Easter eggs for all Hololive fans. Short, simple, sexy… just what you’d expect from her at this point in time. Might need to rewatch it a few times to spot all the background details cause lord knows I needed to…

She really is one of the best Talents Hololive currently have under their belt. It’s gonna be a sad day when she decides to graduate.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus has seemingly slipped under everyone's radar, hardly advertised and almost completely forgotten about after its announcement and subsequent airing, as for those who have seen it, I've hardly seen anything remotely positive about it.

Los Angeles 2032. A young woman wakes up with no memories and possessing deadly skills. The only clues to her mystery are a locked data device and a tattoo of a black lotus. Putting together the pieces, she must hunt down the people responsible for her brutal and bloody past to find the truth of her lost identity.

It's definitely a story that could have been told in about ...

One Punch Man (Anime) add
Look thousands of other people have written far more in-depth and brilliantly composed reviews for this series than I have done, but having rewatched Season 1 of One Punch Man again for the 5th time has reminded me of how bloody awesome this anime was… brilliantly witty writing, great characters, gorgeous animation and sound design, just pure brilliance from start to finish and yes the 6 10 minute OVAs are included in that brilliance. It's one I’d hasten to call a masterpiece for all the right reasons. You can't go wrong with a bit of One Punch Man Season 1… Season 2 however… everything goes ...
