Footnote: Early voiceover work of Tara Strong!

by

Years before she became the best-known female voiceover artist for animation in North America, this was one of Tara Charendoff's (better known as Tara Strong now) first VA jobs.
Don't judge her by this show, guys. She got a lot better and the other series she did were better than this one!
This is the OVA follow-up to Tekkaman Blade, the TV series re-edited into the cult classic Teknoman which aired on early Sundays on UPN.
The earlier show is better and the title character from the previous series barely appears in this one. The main character is a young ingenue played by Tara Strong, a sort of Tekkaman: TNG. It's almost like Sailor Moon in space if you think about it!
It has a 1990s feel about and it's one of those things where you like it or hate it.
The OVA features decent quality animation but I felt the series was too shot and really didn't a proper ending...

Amazing animation and a Unique Take on Storytelling for a Sequel!

by

I just had to write a review to correct what another reviewer had said about the ending. This series has a PERFECT ending! They left the option open for more, but it was a totally well-done conclusion!

Now, it's true that "Blade" or "D-Boy" himself is not in this much for the first few episodes. I liked the way this series was done though, having the story be told through another character's POV and seeing Blade that way. It caught me off-guard, but it was something that made it different instead of a run-of-the-mill sequel.

Most of the cast is all new cast and it's fun getting to know them.

A fantastic soundtrack highlights the top-notch animation --definitely a cut above most of the first series' animation since this was higher budget, direct to video OVAs instead of a TV series.

A unique way to do a sequel, overall, and if you're a fan of the first series you'll probably enjoy it; just keep in mind what I said about it being told from another character's point of view.
