The Master Keaton searies is one of the best you will ever watch. It would be most ideal if you can find one day and watch ALL OF THEM in one viewing. While each individual story is very engaging, only when you finish the whole series you start to appreciate the details revealed in earlier plot line. You will not be disappointed.

Monster before Monster. That’s what I thought as I bought Master Keaton, another anime of Naoki Urasawa, the show invented before his 2004 masterpiece. I checked out the main theme on YouTube, which was random, bland, and dull, but I still decided to watch the show because of what I mentioned before and because all the Master Keaton reviews were profoundly positive. I bought the first volume of the series for a dollar but, somehow, I ended up with the second. With that, I was introduced to this outrageously overrated, woefully written anime (and that’s an understatement). The fact that I was ripped off has nothing to do with how I will review this show. Without further delay, here’s my episode-by-episode analysis of volume 2 of Master Keaton.

Ep.6 – “White Goddess”

“White Goddess” begins with Master Keaton borrowing a sheet from a stranger. Here I learn that this show’s protagonist has one of the blandest and dullest voices imaginable. Not a great way to get viewers. Keaton then runs into his friend Anna, who is protecting an archaeological site from destruction. They reminisce on their college days (and mention Keaton’s divorced wife) before confronting the antagonist of “White Goddess”, an arrogant and undersized businessman with plans to destroy the site. Next, Keaton and Anna meet the antagonist’s mother, who accompanies them on their excavation on the site. As the three explore further into this tomb, Anna reflects on her deceased mother, who used to inspire her daughter with heroic stories. The next day, Keaton shows Anna a technique involving water and soap, using this to stop the businessman’s construction plans. The antagonist then receives a slap across the face from his mother, Keaton returns the sheet to the stranger, and he walks away, the “case” closed.
