    Cyborg 009 is the story of a half-Japanese juvenile delinquent named Joe Shimamura, or Cyborg 009. Black Ghost, a top-secret organization bent on promoting global warfare, kidnaps Joe along with eight other unwanted members of society from the four corners of the globe and turns them into Cyborgs. Though the organization intends to turn the group into super-powered killing machines, it's not long before Joe and his new companions rebel against Black Ghost and make their escape with the help of an old scientist, Dr. Isaac Gilmore.

    Once Joe and friends have freed themselves, Black Ghost sends a series of other Cyborgs and giant robots in hot pursuit. Using their new powers and abilities, our heroes stay one step ahead of Black Ghost and its evil machinations, but can they save the world from its diabolical scheme?!

    Cyborg 009 was the creation of manga-ka (Japanese comic artist) Shotaro Ishinomori. In 1971, Ishinomori-sensei reworked the Cyborg 009 concept into his more popular creation, Masked Rider, or Kamen Rider, which told the story of a young scientist/motorcyclist named Takeshi Hongo who fights the evil organization Shocker, which transformed him into a grasshopper-like Cyborg for their evil deeds

    This is the third Cyborg 009 anime series made. The first was made in 1966, and the second in 1979, the latter almost identical to the newer series made in 2001. There were also two animated films in 1966 and 1967, Cyborg 009 and Cyborg 009: Monster War, and another for the '79 series in 1980 titled Cyborg 009: Legend of the Super Galaxy .

    This guide covers the English dub version ONLY. In Japan, in 2001, it was named Cyborg 009 The Cyborg Soldier, or Cyborg Soldier 009, to avoid confusion with the two previous series. In it's US run in 2003 on Cartoon Network, the anime was simply titled Cyborg 009. Go here for the Japanese version guide.moreless

    Cartoon Network (ended 2004)
    Astro Boy (2004) tells the story of a youthful robot boy - Astro -modeled after the deceased son of a research scientist, Dr. Tenma. Originally intended to be kept a secret, the atomic-powered robot becomes a reluctant superhero who fights for justice and peace for humans and robots alike. Created in Metro City he lives among a 'retro-futuristic' society populated by humans and robots. His creator Dr. Tenma, head of the Ministry of Science, builds Astro in his son's image. Astro never can fill the void that Dr. Tenma feels over the loss of his son. Astro Boy (2004) is a show that you can't miss. Tenma shuts down Astro, burns down the Ministry of Science and flees. Some time later, Astro is discovered by Dr. O'Shay, the new head of the Ministry. Dr. O'Shay takes in Astro and serves as his mentor. Driven by the belief that robots and humans should be friends, Dr. O'Shay is Astro's greatest ally. He provides Astro with a home, enrolls him in school and creates a robot family for him. Astro possesses superb strength, including jet-rocket feet and arms that allow him to fly at extreme speeds. However, the secret to his victories is not his super-powers; the quality that makes him superior to other robots is his artificial brain, the most advanced in the world. This unique quality, termed kokoro in Japanese, allows Astro to experience all of the same emotions as humans. He's clever, resourceful and has a strong sense of justice, always attempting to reason with his adversaries. Mankind's only hope of surviving the onslaught of rebellious robots is a robot himself...the fearless, selfless, incorruptible champion known as Astro. In his quest for peace and justice, Astro often goes it alone, but he is occasionally aided by his robot sister or even rebel robots that he is able to enlist. Astro also has human friends from school who often become entangled in his conflicts. Astro Boy (2004) is produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Roger Smith is Paradigm City's top negotiator; he is called upon in times of conflict to try to negotiate through an ordeal. However, Paradigm City isn't like most normal cities. Forty years ago, an event occurred that caused all living individuals to completely lose their memories. People continued to struggle with their existence, despite this fact, though the search for memories still drives mankind to the brink of insanity. That event also caused a few people to gain some special abilities, such as the right to be a Dominus of a MegaDeus. Roger is capable of calling upon the power of Big O, his own MegaDeus, which he decides to use to defend the city from other MegaDeuses. He continues to live by his ideal, that "people are not ruled by their memories!" This is the guide to the Adult Swim version and the dub. For the WOWOW and original Japanese version, go here. Note: Both guides are the same in terms of episodes and summaries (although what is actually currently submitted is different), just the airdates and cast differ. Airdates: The Big O began airing on Japanese television on October 13, 1999. It lasted through January 13, 2000 running 13 episodes. It was canceled, due to only average ratings. On April 2, 2001 it was dubbed and aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami Block. It ran all 13 episodes, but was edited. Due to the fact that the demographic watching the series was older than the one Toonami hoped to aim for, it was taken off Toonami and aired on Adult Swim. On AS, it was a huge success. On August 3, 2003, a second season was co-produced by Cartoon Network and debuted on Adult Swim. This second season, sometimes called The Big O II or simply Big O II, continues the storyline beginning with the last part of the first season's last episode. However, there are some obvious differences in the and narrative. The Adult Swim airing lasted until November 2, 2003. The Japanese airing of Season 2 lasted from January 2, 2003 to March 27, 2003. The producers wanted a third Season, but one was never created. Season 3? Due to a large amount of mysteries left unsolved by the finale of the second season, the production crew wanted to create a third season to tie up the loose ends and finish the series, as per an option on the contract between Cartoon Network and Sunrise. However, the network determined that the show lacked the marketability and numbers to continue airing new episodes on Adult Swim. There is a great deal of controversy over this decision, however nothing is known for sure. For example, the show's ratings were not nearly as bad as Adult Swim had stated. They weren't high, but they weren't low. The reason why Adul Swim said they were bad nd if this fact is 100% true is still unknown for sure. A petition is still available here. The creators behind it are still seeking a certain number of signatures required by Time Warner for consideration of a third season.moreless

She lives alone with her robot nanny, (Tetsuko), that looks like a giant milk bottle and a slug, (Hanage), who drinks too much and her mechanical dog, (Robodog), that pees on everything. She spends her time dodging her landlord since she's six months behind on the rent. Every episode the President (of everything) calls her on the hot line, and there is some trouble at hand. Don't worry about her lack of abilities though, she doesn't really accomplish anything, just complains and swears a lot. The American version is outrageously funny! The humor in this show is definitely off beat and strange, just about as strange as a powerless 5 year old superhero who lives alone. In one show she convinces her landlord to leave by imitating Michael Jackson. "Michael" threatens to slaughter a bunch of cows and place a blood curse on the landlord if he doesn't leave. "There's a slot on my **** between Spielberg and Geffen." Michael Jackson (Milk) yells at the poor man. In the same episode the president discusses his sexual exploits with the tot and relates how Condoleezza Rice said that she wanted more of his 'executive branch.' The humor is definitely off kilter. One problem Milk faces is tracking down a counterfeiter who has replaced the picture of Mary-Kate Olsen on the new currency with that of Ashley Olsen. As the president states, there's no way that "Joe McBus-pass" will notice that difference. It's up to Super Milk-chan to find the creator of the bogus bills before the economy is ruined.

    Welcome to the Witch Hunter Robin guide. To most of Society, Witches are nothing more than myths and legends of a bygone era. However, there are a few people who possess the Witch genome; a gene that may give the person special, supernatural abilities. For them, a secret organization named Solomon (STN) was formed to track and hunt them down before they became a threat to the rest of Society. The story follows the members of the STN-J, the Japanese branch of Solomon. Unlike other branches of the STN, the STN-J captures Witches alive. Armed with a substance called Orbo, an invention developed by Administrator Zaizen, the Hunters subdue the Witches of Japan and send them to a facility called the Factory. It was during one of these Hunts that a member of the team was killed. With morale falling, Solomon Headquarters sends a new Hunter from Italy to join the STN-J as a replacement for the fallen Hunter; a young girl named Robin Sena. Robin is only 15 years old, but she is already a gifted Craft User. When she first joins the team, she is met with mistrust and impatience by the other members of the STN-J. With the recent heavy Witch activity in Japan, however, the team is kept very busy. Robin's determination and skill with her Craft, which is the ability to create and manipulate fire, slowly gains the trust of the other members. As the Witch activity increases, it soon becomes apparent there is more going on under the surface. With the futures of both Witches and Hunters alike, it may well be Robin who holds the key to everyone's survival. Main Characters Robin Sena: The youngest member of the STN-J team, she was sent to Japan as a replacement for a fallen Hunter. Although she was born in Japan, she was raised in an Italian convent by Father Juliano, one of the heads of Solomon. She is a special class of Hunter, called a Craft User. Her power is Fire. Amon: The team leader and, along with Ms. Karasuma, one of the most experienced Hunters. Keeping mostly to himself, even the other team members do not know much about his private life. He relies mostly on his Orbo gun, but it is suspected that he has a strong power. His power is unknown. Miho Karasuma: The team's second in command, she takes her mission as a Hunter seriously. Because she has a somewhat motherly personality, one of the other members joked about her being the ‘old lady', much to her chagrin, since she is only 19 years old. Like Robin, she is also a Craft User. Her power is to Scrye; the psychic ability to pick up information from people or objects. Yurika Dojima: As a favor to her parents, who are members of the Japanese Cabinet, Ms. Dojima was offered a job at the STN-J. Because of her status, she's treated as ‘special' around the office, to which she takes full advantage of; lazing about, reading magazines, coming in late and such. Unlike the other members of the team, she just barley qualifies as a Hunter. She has no known special abilities. Haruto Sakaki: Enthusiastic about being a Hunter, Sakaki's brashness often causes him to get himself hurt or cause some sort of property damage. Often scolded by the Chief for his latest set of infractions, Sakaki nonetheless continues to try his best. Like Dojima, he has very little ability and no known special ability. Michael Lee: Although not a Hunter, Michael is nevertheless an important part of the team. A computer hacker, he had hacked into STN-J's network and discovered the secret organization's existence. Captured by the STN-J's agents, he was given a choice by Zaizen: either join the organization and never leave the premises, or be put to death. Choosing life, Michael became an invaluable part of the team, getting the information they need for a job and beefing up the network's own systems. Chief Kosaka: The office manager who runs the day-to-day operations of the STN-J, he serves under Administrator Zaizen. His goal is to run the office as efficiently as possible, which often puts him at odds with Dojima. Although overbearing, he is, under it all, an understanding and resourceful person. Takuma Zaizen: The Administrator of STN-J, he oversees both the operation of the Japanese branch of the STN and the Factory, the facility where captured Witches are taken to. He is also continuing the research and refining of Orbo, the substance which is used to subdue Witches. He also has some deep, dark secrets about the Orbo which he is keeping from Solomon Headquarters.moreless
