Watch Master Keaton Anime

Update: The Youtube video is gone, go here instead to watch Master Keaton.

Naoki Urusawa is one of the most prolific mangaka and anime creator. Look, the dude created Yawara, Monster, 20th Century Boys, and Pluto. All these titles were very notable and critically acclaimed. However, one of the most overlooked title made by Uruswa is Master Keaton.

Master Keaton is actually a very entertaining show. It is about an ex-SAS operative who is now working as an insurance investigator. Keaton is not your typical action hero. He's not all muscle like the typical Japanese hero like Goku. Keaton is just a plain looking guy - a father of one and a divorced husband. The show revolves around a lot of MacGyver like adventures from the most innocuous hijinks to the most dangerous missions.

The video above is the first episode of Master Keaton. I must admit that this is not the proper way to view this show, but you can watch it and decide if you want to buy the box set (if it's still available) online. This is a good anime to add to your Urusawa collection.
