Good morning Painkillers. Glad that you all could join me for another Anime Wednesday. Today’s feature, we will be talking about Batman. Wait, this can’t be right! Let’s see, a bad ass that dresses all in black with a bunch of neat toys, a cool sidekick, and a kick ass butler, okay yeah this is Batman. Alright, I’m joking, but it does have a little Batman feel to it, so let’s get into it, since we got some judging to do. Here is The Big O.
Our story opens up in Paradigm City, nicknamed “The City of Amnesia”. About fourth years ago, an “event” happened, where everyone in Paradigm city lost their memories. Here we meet Roger Smith, the top Negotiator in the city. He has a certain set of rules that he does his job by. He also has another special job, he is the piolt of the Megadeus, Big O. Along with his personal assistant Dorothy, and his butler Norman, they protect the city from other Megadeus’ and also try to find out, what happened fourty years ago.
This show is very good. Roger can come off as very straight forward, but many of his interactions with Dorothy are good for a laugh. Especially when she is trying to follow some of his rules. All of characters are well though out, and interact well with other main and side characters. The first 13 espoides run on like most anime or animated shows on TV. The last 13 however, tend to focus more on storylines, and try to answer all questions.
This show was on Cartoon Network back in the day, but now it might be easier to go out and buy it on Blu-ray. If you guys know where to find this show, please let us know. Would like people that never experienced this show before, to have a chance to see it, and definitely want the people that have seen it, to be able to watch it again.
