Anime World Order's Mangatake a look at Anime World Order's Anime
Most of what I add to the encyclopedia is things I've seen all of. But some things were just never fully translated into English that I feel obliged to speak about. Again, www.animeworldorder.com and www.otakuusamagazine.com is where I tend to keep my lengthy manifestos these days.
|Golgo 13 (manga)||Masterpiece||At first glance, Golgo 13 seems terribly one dimensional. Indeed, Duke Togo's been doing largely the same stuff week after week for over 40 years without really changing his facial expression much. But it demonstrates possibly better than any other English language manga release that manga's target audience is not just kids, teenagers, or college students. This is manga squarely for middle-aged men, and so it's no surprise that the massive degree of negative sentiment towards Golgo 13 is from the writings and words of people decidedly outside of its single intended viewing audience.|
