Tekkaman Blade 2 Rocks

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Ok since I've read the other reviews I thought I write one, and make things a lot clearer.
First off the reason why Tekkaman Blade 2 is so different from Teknoman is because it's the original UNCUT version. And since it's the original version - all of the character names and even the title is different.
Teknoman as most people would call it was once on UPN many years ago. Teknoman is a awfully EDITED version of Tekkaman Blade. Tekkaman Blade is the original title. Also many names of the characters were changed for the edited version. When Tekkaman Blade was edited to Teknoman- many footage was edited out. This ruined the show. Tekkaman Blade wasn't ment to be edited.
Tekkaman Blade 2 stayed to the original, and is by far 100 % better then Teknoman. Or I should say Tekkaman Blade and Tekkaman Blade 2 are better then Teknoman.
Sadly there is no way to see Tekkaman Blade (Teknoman) uncut. So there's only Tekkaman Blade 2."
Somewhat thought-provoking and entertaining mecha combat

"Ten years after Tekkaman Blade disappeared fighting the main Radam fleet, the Radam are still attacking the Earth, and the Earth forces are being routinely overwhelmed by alien Tekkamen. A new group called the Space Knights, independent from the army, are developing the next generation of Tekkamen to combat the regrouping Radam threat. A bumbling support mechanic named Yumi is chosen to be the third Tekkaman, and during their formatting, a surprise Radam attack gives Yumi a superweapon that was supposed to be given to one of the more experienced Tekkamen. What sounds like a typical anime mecha setup turns into a very well developed show, with characters you can really be sympathetic for. Yumi and David are the focus of the show, both suffering from severe bouts of unrequited love. The action is, of course, hyperkinetic, with lots of boosting through salvos of laser fire, climactic weapon duels, and long-range energy blasting. The battles are made more engrossing due to the underlying emotions involved, and the final half of the story is both completely believable and heart-rendingly sad. Overall, it's very well done and comes highly recommended."
A great end to the series

"For those of us who saw "Teknoman" on UPN 11 years ago (yes is has been a while), or the original Tekkaman Blade, Tekkaman Blade II comes as a great addition to the series. I highly recommed it to anyone for their anime collection (especially for fans of Guyver and Evangelion).
Tekkaman & teknoman

"Teknoman on tv is one of my favorite shows. Tekkaman blade II is suppose to be ten years later. But their was errors in tekkaman that is not the same as teknoman.
1. the white teknoman had pegus not the female they did not say how she got it.
Tekkaman is good but teknoman was better in my view. I hope one day soon to see the original on dvd.
I think of them as two fine and different show.
The action is good the story is not as good as teknoman.
I link the improved weapon the teknovolter (sorry about the spellng). It is cool.
I Would like to see more of this series so we can see how all of it happened, but if you take this is new you can enjoy it.
It is worth getting for the action. The story of black sunday is cool as well.
Lets all e-mail as many people as we can to get teknoman on dvd."
