Maybe #1 (Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion, Mononoke, Atom The Beginning)

A little similar to my ‘Abandoned’ themed posts I thought I’d do a ‘Maybe’ in terms of a few shows I’ve come across that I haven’t had a chance to check but remain curious about – one day I might end up watching and reviewing these 🙂

Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion

Samurai fighting back the Mongols in the 13th century? Definitely interested, just have to find time to watch it amongst all the other things upon my list. (I don’t remember coming across studio NAZ before but I know there’s some anticipation out there around ID: Invaded.)

Mononoke

A medicine seller dealing with the paranormal around the Edo-period? Once again, count me in 😀 There’s echoes of Mushi-Shi here but I know Mononoke has more of a horror feel to it.

Atom The Beginning

And finally this prequel series that leads up to Astro Boy, which I’m very keen to check out. It also has involvement from Makoto Tezuka (Osamu Tezuka’s son) and so I’m really interested to see this short series.

Okay, so they might pop up in the future but for now I think my other list (far, far below) is more accurate for now. Still, I’ll be keeping an eye out for these three.

    1. That’s good to know, maybe I won’t rush to ‘Angolmois…’ just yet, I did wonder how close the series would align with history. I saw you compared it to ‘Golden Kamuy’ which I’m also really curious about – how did you find that one?

  1. I’m the most interested in seeing Atom: The Beginning. The concept of an Astro Boy prequel is something I find very intriguing and I’d like to see how it would play out. That’s also cool how Osamu’s son was involved with that series. If you find that interesting, I would also check out the manga Pluto which is a cyber-noir/mystery remake of an Astro Boy arc that was adapted by Naoki Urasawa of Monster and Master Keaton fame.

    1. Same! I’ll add it to the list and hopefully review it next month perhaps 🙂

      Wow, that sounds ace – I went and checked up on Pluto and I didn’t realise that there’s an adaptation for the screen in the works, found this little clip!

      1. Sweet! I’m sure that could be a fun watch.

        I saw the clip and I legit geeked out. It’s amazing seeing another Urasawa work getting the anime treatment and Pluto could totally work as a film or a short series. That would be amazing.
