Golgo 13 TV series, collection 3

release year: 2008
genre: animated television action
viewing setting: home Bluray 9/15-21/19 and 8/29/16 to 9/3/16 and home DVD, 1/21-27/15 and 1/17/13

synopsis: In this 13-episode third volume of the TV series, super-assassin Golgo 13 has various missions.

impressions: This was the third of four released volumes collecting the 2008-2009 Japanese television series; it included episodes 27-38. This is good stuff; rather than recap the dozen 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 27-38; the highlights for me were episode 30 (where an aspiring assassin decides to take out Golgo 13 to claim the top spot), episode 37 (involving a hit during Christmas), episode 38 (where a pickpocket robs the wrong person.)

acting: N/A; the English subtitling doesn't always match the spoken English words well.

final word: Very entertaining, and I want more.
