Older anime so the animation is a bit dated however, the characters and story line are more than worth watching.

This is a interesting Sci-Fi anime about cyborgs who lose their humanity and must work to reclaim it.
Very good action scenes and retro style related to older animes and the daft punk discovery music video.
Black Ghost is a great villain and the plot of cyborgs out to reclaim a battered wartorn world from the grip of evil is compelling and unique.

"It is not everyday you get an old anime redone from olden times, I have been a fan of cyborg 009 since my childhood and was filled with joy to see yet another series to be made; luckily for us it even appears in english and uncut at the same time.
As you must have read about the storyline and characters in Amazon.com's review of the title, there's no point in going there. So what I want to point out here, is the style the animation is done in. Though in some of later episodes ( not released in the west yet ) framerate and detail-attention drops from time to time, the series as such is almost in a Fleischer-styled - from the 30s and 40s americana yet, at the same time modern manga/anime drawn 100% on a computer -> :) My point with this is, the Cyborgs 001 -> 009 were inventet in a more innocent time, long forgotten by most anime fans nowadays. Dealing with coldwar issues and other worldly matters of those times, plus each and every character's own struggles within themseleves - and then there's the so called 'real' action, fighting off enemies ! Ergo - not your everyday flashy "go-buy-the-toys" and "forget-the-storyline-before-the end-credits" series. Also the team issue people; Ishinomori Shotaro I surely believe inspired the X-men, as they arrived 8 years before Stan Lee created his version, and these guys are cooler, in two words I can tell you why I think so: matching uniforms... !"
Need more Cyborg 009

"I picked up these two DVDs recently. I fell in love with the show back when it was on Toonami in the afternoons. I finally saw them for a good price and I had some extra money. The DVDs do the series justice I believe, but I'm left hanging. It is a 52 episode series to the best of my knowledge, but only 8 episodes have been released on DVD? I also believe that there are several movies made, but no sign of them coming to R1 anytime in the near future either. This is a such an amazing series, but stopping it at 8 episodes seems a little cruel.
keep the faith,
