Movie Night - Future Boy Conan, Ep. 6

(Update: This video has since been removed from Youtube.  Sorry.)

Just finished uploading another episode of Future Boy Conan, so here it is. Since we're all gossiping about Miyazaki's new movie, it's a good time to revisit one of the classics from 30 years ago. Can you belive Future Boy Conan is nearly 30 years old? Time flies.

In this week's episode, Conan has found Lana who is imprisoned in Industria. He eventually finds a way in, and they manage a successful jailbreak. Eventually, they wander into a hangar, discuss the history of Industria, and just why Lana has been relentlessly pursued. They meet the Industrian leader, Lepka (who, oddly enough, looks just like the Count of Cagliostro), and are recaptured. Meanwhile, Capt. Dyce and his crew choose to rebel against their bosses and break Lana out. Jimsy catches wind and runs off to help break Conan loose while Dyce runs off with Lana in tow. Another action-packed episode. What happens next? I don't know! But I'm sure there are some really cool breakfast cereal commercials to keep us distracted.

Heh, makes me wish this was the cartoon they'd show on Saturday morning in the 80's!

I love this episode, especially in how Conan saves Lana from the tower in one piece (and that cool-ass shock wave bit once he lands on his feet). This is what animation needs to be about!

Another of the things I appreciate the most about Future Boy Conan is that the saving cycle isn't one-sided between Conan and Lana as she saves him almost as much as he saves her. ^_^ So cute those two are.
