It wasn't generic at the time it was released.

Japan enjoys edgy. At the time they also had a love affair with the M16. It was a relatively new rifle and had a relatively futuristic appearance to it, so its presence helped fuel the rise of Golgo 13 among gun nuts and teenagers in Japan of the era.

>>158497755
It's the Japanese take on James Bond, how could it go wrong? Besides, it was probably very original for its time.

This. Just how many stories about literal cold blooded assassin MC can you name from pre-80s Cold War years? It was all about cool secret agents fighting for justice and peace and shit at that point.

OP is probably a newfag who thought everything that contain blood and action are "edgy shit"

He's also a liberal cuck who thinks nationalism is a bad thing.

Have any of you fuckers EVER read a single arc, heck, a single fucking chapters of Golgo 13?
Because what I'm reading here isembarassing even by this board standards.

Wasn't he a hired gun?

Next year is the 50th year anniversary, new anime is highly likely.

>>158497755
Classic in Japan

>>158498916
I will be entirely honest with you, the only thing I know about Golgo is that he apparently was hired by the British government to kill one of the ex-presidents of my country, but I never could learn if it was true or not.
>>
>>158499470
>I will be entirely honest with you,
Please don't. Entire honesty would take forever to get through.
We don't want your entire thought process and discarded conclusions. Please just give us the slightly dishonest but sufficiently correct summary, touched up with an eye on what would be socially acceptable to say in the context of 4chan/a/.

You must be an example of the pinnacle of human masculinity if you post on a mongolian motion pictures board.

You should actually read the manga or at least watch the series before talking nonsense.

>It panders to my ideology so it is good
The "saving your country" story line is a tired concept. Just because a show feels like an echo chamber for nationalists doesn't mean it is good.
>>
i watched the 1982 OVA and a bit of the 2008 Anime series.

Actually enjoyed the fuck out of the anime, very masculine and relatable which are two things anime doesn't do alot.
>>
>>158500967
That's right, it's for omega turboautists.
>>
>>158498289
this is wrong tho because he isn't really anything like james bond at all. the only similarity is that they are both assassins.

Golgo can be hilarious and badass multiple times in the course of 20 minutes without speaking a single line, James Bond is all one liners.

Golgo is fucking boring as a character.

>has no interest in anything
>no motivation for doing his job
>fucks women for no reason
>doesn't stand out from your average 80's action hero
>most of his assassinations aren't even that impressive

There are far better assassin characters out there than Golgo 13.
>>
>>158503409
You are objectively wrong.
>has no interest in anything
>no motivation for doing his job
He literally spends his entire fortune once just so he can continue working as a hitman. He loves his job.
>fucks women for no reason
Fox and sour grapes?
Just because you can't get laid doesn't mean it's not fun.
>most of his assassinations aren't even that impressive
Okay.ogg

>There are far better assassin characters out there than Golgo 13.

This is objectively wrong, there are no better assassin's than Golgo 13, in terms of his character or his effectiveness.
