Vampires. Why did it have to be VAMPIRES?!
I definitely prefer the original KMFDM over the remix. And hey why say “Today only” when you still rip on bad anime almost as much as you analyze it?
Why was there no mention that the guy who did Ninja Scroll and Wicked City was the director behind this series?
Gogol hacked the scientist’s computer and found info on the work he was doing, and probably made it himself. That’s how he got his hands on the vaccine.
You know, just because “times change”, it doesn’t mean that going back to the roots once in a while is a bad thing. Shitting on bad anime is how it started and it can (and in my opinion should ) stay part of it.
Reviewed this one recently, myself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za4QNk6OcT4
This has got to be the most 80’s Anime you’ve reviewed.
Edit: Also, I hope Gabes blood didn’t wreck your keyboard.
I think my brain shut down after ‘cyborg saber-toothed tigers with laser beams coming out of their mouths.’
… You might take a bit to have Gabe looked at. That can’t be good.
Nice retro episode considering the subject. As for Angel Sanctuary, yeah I know you guys are turned off by the whole incest metaphor, but the manga’s worth reading. Too bad there’s not enough hentai based off of it.
The Manga was fucking awesome.
YES! Angel Sanctuary was/is a favorite of mine.
Yay, I have been waiting for this forever. I really liked this anime when I first saw it, this probably had a lot to do with being a fan of Yoshiaki Kawajiri, who tends to elevate what could be really schlocky stuff. And yeah whenever I am feeling a bit down I once in a while watch that infamous line and instantly perk up. Also I was addicted to listening to the opening song and that ballad in the third episode, which is surprisingly good music…
I actually thought that he’d already done it.. I mean, he referenced at least 4 times in past episodes.
I remember him mentioning the film once way in the beginning of the show, and just showing a clip of the infamous vampire line. Really that’s how I found out of about Oedo 808 I believe.
That is exactly how I would describe Kawajiri, as a guy who makes elevated schlocky anime. Maybe it’s the quality of the craft.
Well he is the only one to make a decent Highlander sequel…
*sigh* Watching the sky scraper establishing shot, all can think is … “Humanities latest attempt at compensation”
26:23 He did say interested.
