Ratings & Reviews
Footnote: Early voiceover work of Tara Strong!
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...
