Whether it's stories about getting drunk, saving kittens, ghosts, bath house brawls, running from giant crocodiles, fighting terrorists in devastatingly powerful robots, or reading porn, it doesn't matter. Patlabor OVA 2 re-affirms what Patlabor TV and the original OVA established, Patlabor can do anything and it will work. And no, I wasn't kidding, you will find all of that and more here despite the short episode count.

As with previous Patlabor works, the strength of this OVA is mainly in how the characters are so enjoyable, the bizarre and often surreal direction of Mamoru Oshii, and the wonderful OST by Kenji Kawai. If you have seen read more

Baldios is basically a string of tragedies born from human greed and ambition. If you like old school space dramas, the chances are that you will enjoy this. I found it to be on par with the original Yamato, and even better in some ways.

Like many shows of the era, it is heavily influenced by Uchuu Senkan Yamato. So much so that the plot of Baldios and the original Yamato are basically the same thing, with the only real differences being that the alien race isn't blue and there is mecha action involved. Well, there's a bit more to it than that, especially at the read more

One of Go Nagai's lesser known works, Jushin Liger follows the formula that most anime based on his works do, and it does so very well. I had always thought this show looked awesome, but it wound up exceeding my expectations. Being a 43 episode series based on 2 volumes of manga, it is not without its issues, but overall it is thoroughly entertaining and fans of this kind of thing are gonna love it.

Although it's technically a bio armor show, for all intents and purposes this is a monster of the week show. The bio armors are controlled G Gundam style, and are massive read more

Great Mazinger is a fun follow up watch after Mazinger Z, but it is not quite up to par with it. That's not to say it isn't worth while though, it was still a good series. I'll do my best not to make the entire review a Mazinger Z/Great Mazinger comparison, but it was hard for me not to constantly compare the two since I marathoned them back to back. Plus, I don't really see why anyone would watch this without having seen Mazinger Z first.

When the show first starts it's almost like you never stopped watching Mazinger Z. Mazinger Z directly transitions into this read more

Note that this is a review of the original series and is not a reflection of "Macron 1" or any of the other overseas Goshogun adaptations.

Sengoku Majin Goshogun is a very strange and unique case. What we have here is both a clever parody of the mecha craze that thrived in the 70s and the 80s, and a rather entertaining show that is able to stand up on it's own merits despite it's large focus on often subtle humor. At first I didn't realize the series was going to parody the classic mecha genre. Like many, my first exposure to the franchise was through the read more

Daitarn 3 has a lot of things going for it, being a 70s episodic super robot show. It is very humorous and will often make you laugh out loud, Watanabe's music is great and some of the tracks are quite memorable, watching the central cast interact is very entertaining, and the typical monster of the week format most of these shows employ has a spin on it making this series more dynamic than most in this sub-genre. Although it does follow the monster of the week model, each "monster" (Meganoid) that Daitarn 3, Banjou, and his group of allies must defeat each episode is given read more
