The thing about censorship is that it seldom makes any sort of goddamn sense.

None at all. Forgot to mention they also let them keep the sex scenes. Sure, they cut the nudity, but an NES with blood, death, dark moments, smoking, swastikas, robot Hitler's (renamed) and sex... But we can't have those crosses in Duck Tales  ;D

Golgo 13 The Professional is my #1 fav movie BTW (I know, I have very odd taste lol)

Aww shit maybe that was it afterall.. Is that film the one where that snake guy rapes the rich guy's daughter and the dad has the butler lock the door behind him?

Thread be taking a pretty dark and pervy twist, y'all.

Keep it up. :P
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Yeah that one. A lot of people don't like it, but its a cult classic for fans of the old school. With Golgo 13, you're either a fan or a disliker.

It has fantastic writing and one of the best anime villains I've ever seen, but he's a fantastic villain for film in general too. Plus the twist at the end has such a perfectly done scene. (Better to go in not expecting a twist end tbh, but there ya go lol). Just A LOT of shocking buts in it and a few dodgy lines, but a really good dub courtesy of Streamline Pictures.

Haha I liked it, it was pretty full on for a 15 year old, and I can't help but thinking that watching the 90' style more hardcore anime like Akira, Fist of the North Star, SFII, Golgo 13: The Professional, Suikoden: Demon Century, Vampire Wars, Cyber City Odeo and the like has somewhat desensitized me... But hey I'm still here.

Lol I feel ya man. Golgo 13 The Pro was my first R rated film, i was 14. I'm aware its crazy stuff but I like it. You can tell by my name I'm a huge Crying Freeman fan. MD Geist is also comedic gold  ;D could've been better with a good dub

Yeah true, CF was such an interesting anime. I can't believe the way it starts out, the first episode is pretty fucked up in retrospect.
Can't forget Wicked City... I will NEVER forget the snake scene where it slithers out of that woman.... Still makes me shudder

Later episodes of CF go so overboard. It is messed up a lot of the time, but there are always underlying themes of love and respect which i really dig, plus I like skilled and metaphorical/knowledgable characters lime Freeman.

But Wicked City was just rereleased by Diskotek, who do awesome fucking jobs. I might pick it up, I liked the story and action a lot besides the perverted old man who turns into a badass later. Also wanted to give the novel series its based on a try, they're all translated in paperback for cheap on Amazon.

I think it's remastered, but definitely not a redub. They don't have a dubbing studio, and only release a blu ray if an HD remaster already exists.

Diskotek likes to rerelease old anime in amazing packages. They find what they can on the films and include it in some way. Example in Cagliostro they uncluded both English dubs alongside the Japanese ones, for Golgo 13 they included the director and producer commentary plus fixed sound issues in the other DVD release, for Crying Freeman they fixed odd edits Streamline made.
