GOLGO 13 - An analysis to make you watch it!

Post by X4vi0uR on Tue Mar 11, 2014 3:48 pm

This one is a rare gem in my opinion, an anime almost from 1983, yeah it's one of those really beautiful classics.

So...What is about?

Golgo is a professional assassin, mainly a sniper with god-like skills, but not just that, he's a skillful CQC fighter and he's dam fast with guns. The anime had two old adaptations, but recently it was remade with the new polished graphic techniques in 2008-2009.

It is a really thrilling experience to me, the anime is not just gunfights and revenges, but it goes more into the psychological sector sometimes. You almost stay there anxious asking what'll happen next.

The main character: Duke Tougo

So, skills apart, what is he? Who is he?
The only thing you know about him is that he goes by the name Duke Togou, but he also goes by the codename Golgo 13, the name of the legendary assassin that can get every assignment done and every target dead for 3 million dollars.

I almost beg you to give it a try. Unfortunately I can't assure for any of the games, the 2 movies and the 2 live actions, but the new anime serie is pure gold!

Here's a vid about this awesome character:

Man, I would love to see him in action.
It's one of those rare stories where the protagonist is skilled from the start, instead of developing throughout the story, and I kinda like that. It can give me the impression like "What will he do if he were in that situation?" instead of "Come on... Use that new skill!".
Thumbs up to this manga/anime from me.  cheers

He sounds remarkably talented. Actually the sort of anime I've been looking for since Black Lagoon. Thanks once again!

This anime is no joke and even if there may be some cliché like characters, every single episode is unique and spectacular! Wink

A lot of things are cliché nowadays. Just how they present it makes the difference. Golgo looks like a really entertaining series though.

Golgo 13 has been called a Japanese counterpart to James Bond, except with a darker character, a much more hardcore attitude towards sex, and a complete lack of morality. Golgo 13 is described as a mystery man of undetermined origin, possibility being at least part Japanese, who takes any assignment for any employer (it has been said he has worked for the CIA and the KGB) as long as the right price is given and will always fulfill his contracts, even if he has two or more opposing contracts at the same time. He is an uncanny sharpshooter, with near perfect accuracy and capability of lethal trick shooting, and regularly uses a customized, scoped M-16 rifle in his assassinations.
