Editorial Reviews

He's back and he's bigger than ever! Due to popular demand, the second series of Big O is back and in one complete set! When we last saw Roger Smith, he was about to defend his home of Paradigm City against three invading robots. The battle is over and Roger Smith is now plagued by doubts about who he is and the world he lives in. However as Roger nears the truth behind Paradigm City and everybody’s lost past, he will discover the secrets that lay behind The Big O, and the other Megadeus’ hidden within Paradigm City. New mysteries demand to be unraveled, old enemies threaten to wreak havoc once again, and more clues to the cataclysmic event that happened forty years ago…Big O It’s showtime! Genre: Action/ Mecha/ Sci-Fi. From director Kazuyoshi Katayama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo!! No one who enjoys anime should miss October 15, 2007

This is the second part of the complete story of Big O. It is as amazing as collection I. The story becomes more mysterious and a little frightening too. The conversation and the expression of the characters leave something more clearly about the ending of this story and the truth everyone wants to know all along. I kept watching the story until the end on one day. Of course, surprise is included...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Big-O II August 13, 2007
Season 1 or Act 13 left off with Roger, Dorothy and Big-O taking on 3 foreign megaduces heading to attack Paradigm-City. Season 2 picks up where Act 13 left off. Though the animation was change for season 2 from art decko style (Batman The Animated Series) to CGI animation. Big-O couldn't look any better. With more colors plus looking more sinister with night battles Cartoon Network did a decent job for season 2. Anyway in this season more questions then answers from season 1 will be answered. Roger will encounter some new villains and old villains alike with more megaduces to battle. Not just Roger who we discover has some secrets however every character will discover he or she destiny.

Plus the mystery of what happen 40 years ago will be slighty answered in the end but pay close attention to the final 6 Acts of this series or you will loose some important vital information about the series. The ending is a bit confusing thanks to Cartoon Network ending the series at 26 Acts which the creator recently quoted that the series suppose to have another 13-26 Acts remaining however it's up to the fans to decided if they want another season or two of the Big-O which I wouldn't mind. I want answers for what season 2 started only time will tell when. Overall it's a good series worth watching along with season 1 has Roger Smith The Negotiator will once again must save Paradigm City with his trusty partner Dorothy Wayneright, and The Big-O.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic December 29, 2009

The Big O ranks as one of the great classics of anime in my opinion. I'm a Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo flavored anime fan and this one is right down my alley. If you like stylish anime without too much drama, yet nice, deep storylines The Big O is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The strangest anime i've ever watcher April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
The "time-loop" ending kinda annoyed me. This is the only cartoon that was killed after 12 episodes in Japan, and brought back by popular demand of fans in the US. I loved the cartoon although it was really strange... Recommend it to anyone. Worth having in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece September 27, 2012

The highly anticipated second season of Big O picks up right where we left off last season, and whoever enjoyed it won't be disappointed with this one. The same brilliant writing, great characters, and fascinating enigmas makes this definitely a good buy.
I honestly could not rate this high enough - in my opinion, its not only one of the greatest animated shows I've ever seen, but one of the greatest stories I've ever been told period.

My advice is to buy both seasons, sit back, and prepare to feel the power of Big O!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a puzzle July 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
There have already been some really excellent reviews of this set, but I'll add a little of my own thinking.
I initially loved the first season of "Big O" in large part because of the mystery around Paradigm City. Like many, I was hoping that season two would answer all of the questions for me. At the end however, I was left with my jaw on the floor, muttering "What the....". I undertook a lengthy online search for some sort of official explanation, and though I did not find anything "official", I did enjoy reading some of the theories other fans had come up with.
So, while at first I was frustrated and a bit disappointed with season two because of the ending, I have come to see it in a different light, and love it. I loved the mystery of Paradigm, and in many ways it remains a mystery, which is perhaps how it should remain. What better than something that makes you stretch your own imagination and think?
I am glad to have the entire set, season one and two. I still love to visit Paradigm City. Roger, R. Dorothy, and Norman are great characters. Great characters, great mystery, and even a great soundtrack. I would recommend this to anyone, with the advice to sit back, enjoy the ride, and not expect to have all of their questions answered!
