A surprisingly varied mixtape awaits our listening pleasure with the peculiar ubiquity of robots in music videos both past and present. The killer androids of the wasteland are on the hunt backed by Megadeth and Iron Maiden and inevitable synth-based dance tracks are forged by Equateur and Perturbator while the machines display their capacity to adapt and evolve with some singular singles by Bjork, Pete Miser and Caravan Palace. Why were we programmed to feel funky?

Let’s Go JoJo! #26 – A Little Story From the Past ~My Name Is Doppio~

While the main cast are no doubt extricating themselves from a recent aerial disaster other developments are afoot within Passione as we meet the mild-mannered Doppio, dispatched on a secret mission by the boss himself! What purpose brings him to Sardinia? And how did such a nervous young lad become such a close confidant of the gang's leader? More importantly will the answers be any more shocking than the dubious return of One Punch Man or the confounding kappa chaos contained within new Kunihiko Ikuhara joint Sarazanmai? Please leave a message!

Noted directors and Netflix darlings David Fincher and Tim Miller present their latest outing on the ubiquitous streaming service, a collection of animated science fiction shorts for adult audiences of varying content and quality all ostensibly united under one or more of the themes mentioned in its title. Is it fertile ground for an interrogation of complex ideas relating to artificial intelligence, the purpose of existence and the nature of the soul? Or is it carte blanche to let animators' libidos run wild in the shallowest interpretation of "mature" possible? Famous authors, faithful renderings of genitalia and the recurring ratio problems with anthology works may just guide us to the answer!
