Remember that anime, 009-1, that came out in the Fall and went largely ignored? Me either! Apparently ADV licensed it! And they just put a site up for it! I had no idea until Natalie Lane shot me an email about it.

I pretty much gave the anime no attention last Fall, but I checked out the trailers on the site, and it actually looks okay. And by that, I mean it has panty shots and voluptuous cyborgs. The jury is still out on the character design, though. I guess I’ll have to , y’know, watch the anime to make an informed descision…

Umm dude, you are not telling me you have no idea who Shotaro Ishinomori and his mentor Osamu Tezuka are right? It’s all right if you don’t like their style, which can be considered “dated” like old disney cartoons, but seriously, what kinda anime fan are you?

I remember seeing the first couple of episodes of this – but it was licensed early so no more subs were forthcoming. The style was retro but nicely done, and the theme was sort of OTT/tongue-in-cheek spy action with fanservice. It looked kind of interesting, but I’d need to see the rest to really comment, and that ain’t going to happen. I certainly wouldn’t risk buying it based on only two eps.

Interesting… ANN has a huge background ad for the dvd release or something, linking to the first episode streamed online.

The absolute last thing the ad and the first few seconds of the video reminded me of was Tezuka. It may be a follow-up to Cyborg 009, but I’m still having a hard time taking a show seriously when Newtype describes it as “Erotic”. 😛
