Editorial Reviews

His targets never see it coming and he's never caught. If there is a witness to the kill, that poor SOB winds up dead too. People say he's a ghost. A machine. A monster. He's Golgo 13, the most feared assassin in the world, the professional's professional

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! And it's worth it... July 2, 2010
Having been a fan of Golgo 13 for many years, I've wondered why he's never gotten an animated series--yes, there have been two live action films, two animated movies, and video games--but you would think that for a manga series that's been running for over forty years would have had an animated series already.

Well, the wait is over. GOLGO 13 is a hard-edged, mature animated series that hits the mark--no pun intended. The stories are adapted from the original manga--including the first G13 story I ever read, "Room 909"--and the animation is quite good for television. Sentai Filmworks has also done a very good job with the dub, since most of the stories take place in the United States. The series pulls no punches--Duke Togo, aka Golgo 13, is the best assassin in the world, taking out his targets with his modified M16. Any contract he takes is ALWAYS honored. He picks no side, he is the ultimate, amoral freelancer. If anyone tries to betray him, he will kill them--no ifs, ands or buts. Strangely enough, the best G13 stories are not so much about Golgo, but focus on his targets and those around him.

Golgo is a truly unique character, and those who want to indulge themselves in a hard-boiled, slow burn show should look no further.

I enjoyed these first thirteen episodes a lot, and I'm looking forward to the rest of this series that, honestly, is long overdue for one of manga's greatest characters. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adaptation of an epic manga July 13, 2010
This is the best translation of the Golgo 13 manga into video form by far. Original stories from the past 40+ years of this epic series have been reproduced with great accuracy and attention to detail, down to the individual illustrations and storyboarding of the original series. The cinematic vision of Takao Saito is well-expressed and the animation is true to form.

Each episode is a nugget of awesomeness, putting a different twist on the same ultimate outcome: the victim is surely assassinated. Even though we all must die, it's the way we got there that makes things interesting. Well, Golgo is the grim reaper in human form. Don't stand behind him if you value your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golgo 13 finally comes to America!!! June 8, 2010
I've been a huge fan of the Golgo 13 series ever since I saw the subs online. I've been craving to hear the english Dub and finally Sentai Filmworks brings it to America. The series is filled with non stop action, no one can mess with Duke Togo. The best sniper assassin to ever hold an M16 rifle. Can't wait for Volume 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars GOLGO 13 will blow you away! March 25, 2012
Although I do not own the DVD set (though I am planning on buying itfrom Amazon soon), my review is based on seeing the series online and downloading my favorite episodes on my MP3.

For the uninitiated, the series is based upon the classic, long-running Japanese Magna Comics and Anime films ("Golgo 13: The Professional" and "Golgo 13: The Queen Bee"). Often described by critics as a "Japanese version of James Bond", that's only a basic idea of who and what the character is.

GOLGO 13 is a professional hitman/assassin whose specialty is as a sniper and whose weapon of choice is a modified M16 Assault Rifle with a telescopic sight. Deadly, cold-blooded, and appearing to lack any morals, GOLGO 13 will kill anyone, any time, any place... for any price. Sometimes he works for the "good guys" (He's worked for the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, the Police, INTERPOL, and MI6) sometimes for the "bad guys" (The Mafia, Drug Lords, Shady Businessmen). It doesn't matter to him. If the job is intriguing or challenging, he doesn't choose sides... If the price is right, he'll take the job.

Each episode (running between 25 to 30 minutes apiece) runs along two basic plot set ups. 1: How will GOLGO 13 pull off a job when the target and/or the shot itself appears impossible? 2: GOLGO will be placed into a situation where he may be captured or killed by the law or other criminals. The question is how will he pull off the job and escape? Only a few episodes stray from these set ups. What's most intriguing about the character of GOLGO 13 himself is because he's the epitome of the "strong and silent type" whose "actions speak louder than words", the viewer is often left to form their own opinions of GOLGO's thoughts and motives.

I'll be echoing what the other posted reviews had to say, but if my chiming is helps to get more people to check this out I'm happy to do it.

I first heard of Golgo 13 a little over thirty years ago and have devoured what little of it that has been available in translated form, specifically collections of story arcs, the awful live action movie starring Sonny Chiba (I blame the script and direction, not him) and the two animated films, the fist of which is exceptional, so when I heard about this TV series around a year ago, I was dying to see it. A friend who runs an anime-themed import store in Manhattan recently hooked me up with some episodes that featured superb subtitles and I have awaited more ever since. The series itself is a flawless translation of Golgo 13 to television and the episodes I watched widely avoided long-form serialized stories and instead keeps things moving with briskly-paced half-hour stand alone stories starring the world's greatest assassin. This is great stuff that fans of espionage, suspense and sheer badassery will love, so please take the word of these reviews and give this a look.
