Speaking of Ippo and badassery, his first Gazelle Punch is hardcore.

Fan-made anime OSTs always suck. That’s a fact of life.
But once in a while there will come an exception so great that you are forced to forgive the entire genre.

Presenting, the most badass edit of Hajime no Ippo — Ippo’s first Dempsey Roll mixing in the OST, “The Finisher”.

Goosebumpville, here we come!

Interesting review of the anime business and upcoming trends (more movies, less TV, streaming is on the rise, number of anime shows doubled since 2010 from 120+ to 240+ etc)

Guys, check out Gantz:O! Lots of cool action with pretty good CGI. Also featuring traditional Japanese Yokai and Ayakashi monsters facing off against modern day tech.

Worth a watch!

Lazy Sunday watch: Ouritsu Uchuugun (Royal Space Force)

Gainax debut, all the way back from 1987! Decent story and characters, brought to life with absolutely fantastic art that’s miles ahead of most anime today (where did we go wrong?)

The architecture, apparel and vehicle designs are truly original, just watch this:

Boy, do I have a pick for you this week; Jin-Rou. Is. Amazing.

It's Ghost in the Shell without the futurism. The animation is old-school à la the original GITS or Vampire D with the melancholy, desaturated tones giving it a heft and character you just cannot find in today's crop of kiddie toon shows.

If you were starving for some gritty stories, Jin-Rou is your fix. Enjoy 👍🏻

“Run, Melos!” is a rare old gem published way back in 1940 by Osamu Dazai and animated by Toei in 1992. Based on Friedrich Schiller's “Die Bürgschaft” which in turn was based on “Damon and Pythias”, an ancient Greek legend recorded by the Roman author Gaius Julius Hyginus that tells the story of true friendship between two Pythagorean men, “Run, Melos!” is sufficiently different in both story and art to hold your interest from start to finish.

Pretty thorough analysis of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell movie

Highlights some of the themes I had originally missed like the use of reflections throughout the movie to show the distinction between the original and the copy which is the root of Motoko’s dilemma.

Also highlights how well the movie holds up all these years later, the clear sign of a masterpiece.

Between Boston Dynamics’ terrifying robots ATLAS and PETMAN, and the revolutionary breakthroughs via Deep Learning like AlphaGo and Tesla’s automated cars, the science fiction of yesterday is becoming the reality of today making this brilliant franchise more relevant than it has ever been.
