Insert Obligatory 'FUNi Heats Things Up' Pun Here

FUNi rescues another Geneon title.

...I almost went with that headline, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it, even for the announcement that FUNimation has Heat Guy J.

This has to be one of my favorite announcement roll-outs in recent memory though: Pictionary! Maybe it's just because I'm such a sucker for games of all kinds (...hence being in Vegas), but I thought it was very creative. FUNimation is definitely doing some fun things with its blog.

Right, then, back to Heat Guy J FUNi is delivering the entire 26-episode series as a box set later this year. Here's their blurb on the plot:
“Super criminals and mafia families have become more powerful than any police force in the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. That's why the government built Android J, a cybernetic crime-fighting machine destined to rid Judoh of the criminal element. Together with his partner, Daisuke Aurora, the most dangerous criminals will soon find themselves on the run. The mob won't take this sitting down, and as the criminals toughen up and the stakes keep rising, J finds himself matched in more than one battle.”

Apparently the series was originally released by Geneon-- I never watched any of it then, did any of you? Is it worth picking up?

Sounds like a Terminator/Robocop hybrid show... never did bother to check it out before when it first came stateside...

It's forgettable.
