Golgo 13 TV series, collection 2
release year: 2008
genre: animated television action
viewing setting: home Bluray 9/9-13/19 and 8/22-28/16 and home DVD, 12/26/12
synopsis: In this 13-episode second volume of the TV series, super-assassin Golgo 13 has various missions.
impressions: This was the second of four released volumes collecting the 2008-2009 Japanese television series. This is good stuff; rather than recap the 13 episodes here, I'll point you to a page that does it better than I could. These are easy to watch, at under a half-hour apiece, and they're also a lot of fun. This collection had episodes 14-26; the highlights for me were episode 14 (where he encounters another master assassin with the same mission), episode 19 (where he goes up against organ harvesters), episode 21 (a manhunt in the Amazon), and episode 23 (where he is on a hijacked plane and gets hired to stop the hijackers.)
acting: N/A; the English subtitling doesn't always match the spoken English words well.
final word: Very entertaining, and I want more.
