Heat Guy J (2002) Review

Heat Guy J is a great piece of anime at 26 episodes total. Similar to Ghost in the Shells’ endearing question, can machines generate emotion? The show starts off with two partners being one human partner and one android partner. Heat Guy shows as much care for his weaker partner as two human partners would show for each other. As the story progresses, it gets richer and deeper in both scope and range. You see how a future city sustains itself with a super brain race known as the Celestials who maintain it. The main human character is half Celestial and half human and witnessed the horrible murder of his father. He was himself saved from joining his father in death by his older brother. Other characters enter the fray like my favorite Bolma. I know, it sounds like the girl from Dragon Ball series, but this guy is a real badass. Bolma is an ex-con that broke out of jail but has turned a new leaf. In the future, any convicted felon sentenced to more than a hundred years has to undergo a mutant genetic alteration. They change their head into that of a beast for the criminal to feel their sentence, even more, to make up for their short lifespan compared to their long sentence. Well, Bolma has a head of a wolf equipped with howls and all. He is also a great martial arts expert with a sword and had his speed and strength illegally mutated and altered. The story comes together really well with a great ending. Action scenes are off the hook and mixed with a new type of animation as well as the well-known style. Trust me; this is a must-see even for one like me who gets bored real quick.
