Okay, it's been a while since I posted a trio of reviews. And they're all Christmas-themed! No, no they're not, actually. One actually involves the summery sport of swimming. Which I am doing now in December--I joined a sports club with an indoor pool! Well, on to the anime:
Coyote Ragtime Show—A small but fun group of space pirates, led by a tough old man called simply “Mister”, searches for treasure on a planet due to be blown up like Alderaan, all the while in a race with a beautiful detective plus an evil woman with twelve killer android “daughters”.
The show threatened a barrage of violence, but except for a bloodbath in the second half of the first episode, it didn't deliver. Sure, there were explosions and spaceships being shot down, but it was mostly bloodless stuff, about as violent as The A-Team. I'm not complaining, mind you, my ability to not get grossed out can be relatively low. (And besides that, I’m not one of those who complains about violence on TV and I’ve always loved The A-Team.)
