Show #126: Urban Square


Those maverick renegades are at it again! Time for some good old fashioned 80s street justice in the middle of Urban Square!



Another one-off OAV from that magical era when they'd animate anything, Urban Square is a loving homage to action movie conventions with a welcome pinch of self awareness, sporting an impressive pedigree featuring some of anime's best creative talent. Unlike many of its contemporaries which mindlessly rehashed the plots of bigger and better works here can be seen much more care and appreciation that wears its inspirations like a warming, familiar blanket.

THE SHORT VERSION

Hapless heroes

Stunt drivers

THAT FIREARM AIN'T REGULATION
