Golgo 13: The Professional

Postby ThePeaGuy » Thu Feb 24, 2005 2:41 am

Any of you members here who are fans of mature anime ever watched this film? <p>I remember watching it once on the UK Sci-Fi Channel a few years back, when anime was shown frequently then, and I thought the film was not too bad albeit violent.<p>To those who've never heard of the film, here's a brief synopsis of Golgo 13:The Professional.<p>Golgo 13 is the codename of a hitman being sought by goverments around the world because of his legendary skills. He is hunted down by assassins, mercenaries, and authority bought by a wealthy tycoon because one of his last jobs involved the death of his son.<p>

Golgo 13 was the Japanese Bond of the early 80's. (and just too damned cool!) I still have several of the old manga as well as the 2 NES games and a digital comic for the PS1. The movies were pretty cool as well, but there isn't an official release I've found with the original japanese language (in Canada). I keep saying I'm gonna get an import, but I always forget. !@#$

Wow, I thought I was the only one here who heard of this show! I didn't get to watch it until a few years ago when I bought a used VHS copy on eBay, but I have played the NES games before that though, and I loved them both (still do). I have known about the anime before the NES games though, however I did not remember it until a little while after I saw the NES games. The anime was good, but it was really violent. I do think Golgo is a major badass though, and personally, I think he shits all over Bond.
