Topicocalypse One Shot - The Big O Episode 1 (Review): Roger the Negotiator

June 18, 2020

The one shot episodes are back! Or perhaps it'll be more than one if I end up reviewing the entire series, but on this episode of Topicocalypse, we're doing things a little different. Instead of four (sometimes five) idiots sitting around a table talking about things they may or may not know anything about, I will be reviewing an episode of an anime series that is very near and dear to my heart . . . The Big O.

I’ve been taking some time lately, to go back and watch the anime series I grew up with. As a novel writer, going back to my inspirations has been the key to “reawakening” my creativity, especially in these hectic times, where just stepping out your front door is like going on a walk with sorrow and depression. That being said, the noir-like world of The Big O has been a welcome distraction from the strange and terrible things going on in our society. Turning on the box-set blu ray instead of the news has proven to be the best thing I’ve done in the past few weeks.

I hope you enjoy!
