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).

Very good; almost as good as the manga.
3 January 2009 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Golgo 13," while being my favorite comic book character (although he is not likable; after all, he's an assassin), has not for the most part received very good, faithful screen adaptations. For the uninitiated, Golgo 13 is the alias of Duke Togo (also, probably an alias, but people seem to know his name routinely), the world's deadliest assassin and foremost sharpshooter. Now, TokyoTV has made a very faithful, beautifully rendered, decently animated animated series based on the long-running manga. I would recommend this for fans of manga/anime, comic books, and assassin/action movies and even mysteries. The episodes are self-contained and even non-linear, much like the comics. Catch this sweet show on the video-hosting sites, someone is in the process of translating them all into English, Spanish, and French.
