Trivia

According to various Japanese Anime/Magna Comic historians, the significance of Duke Togo's alias "Golgo 13" and the symbolism of a skeleton wearing a crown of thorns is this: Both refer to the "13th" Roman Soldier to take part in the crucification of Jesus Christ. Specifically, the 13th soldier is the one who put the crown of thorns on the head of Christ. "Golgo" refers to the hill of Golgotha where Christ was crucified. See more »

Goofs

Although some episodes are set in the United States, American characters often use European measurements like "kilometers" and "celcius". Also, road signs are drawn the European fashion rather than American styles such as round "halt" signs (rather than octagonal "stop" signs) and speed limit signs measured in "kilometers" per hour (rather than "miles" per hour).

One of the best Anime series' ever made • 10/10
20 July 2014 | by (the Universe) – See all my reviews

Directed by Osamu Dezaki, who sadly passed away in 2011, had an enviable collection of titles to his credit, but, I only managed to see two of the stylish directors Anime; 'The Professional: Golgo 13,' and its follow-up to the first, 'Golgo 13: Queen Bee,' made fifteen-years later, in 1998. Dezaki has directed no less than forty-two animated features, which is no small number by any standard, but after only seeing 'Golgo 13,' I & II around six-months ago, I'm now determined to catch up on a few others that look pretty damned good. I've also just completed this impressive series.

Duke Togo, codename Golgo 13, is totally unknown by anyone, including the audience, never revealing anything personal, and when he takes on a job, the job is as good as done, as Golgo 13 always gets his target. He is highly trained in all manner of taking life and is the best in the business and way better than the competition. His clients range from the FBI, DIA and any other government agency who can afford his standard rate of $3 million.

What I loved about this Anime was the high style used by Dezaki and was a delight to watch. Coupled with an intriguing character, in the shape of Golgo 13, this film is in my top 5 position because of the skill that's gone into the animation, then we have a character of great depth who is so deep and complex, you can listen to his thoughts all day without ever feeling boredom. If you enjoy James Bond or Jason Bourne- like movies, you may find you prefer the relaxed and bloody action of Duke Togo 'Golgo 13.' This is easily one of my all-time favorites.
