Product Description

Nine human beings from across the globe are remodeled against their wills into human weapons known as Cyborgs by the nefarious Black Ghost Organization. Our hero, 009, is half-Japanese, half-American and, equipped with Mach-speed acceleration among other extraordinary abilities, is the most advanced of the nine Zero-Zero Cyborgs (all of whom have super powers). From different countries, different races and even different eras, theses nine inimitable individuals cooperate with each other to fight agains Black Ghost and the strange vicissitudes of their fortunes. Based on the comic of the same name. Uncut and Unedited includes original versions of all 8 episodes.

Amazon.com

Subtitled "The Cyborg Soldier," the 2003 version of Cyborg 009 is the third TV series based on Shotaro Ishinomori's 1964 manga. Joe Shimamura, an orphan falsely accused of murdering the priest who raised him, has been turned into a cybernetic warrior by agents of the sinister organization Black Ghost. Joe (a.k.a. 009) joins forces with Cyborgs 001 through 008. With the advice of Dr. Gilmore and Dr. Kozumi, the powerful but distrustful Cyborgs gradually form a team capable of challenging Black Ghost and its string of increasingly powerful Cyborgs (0010 through 0013 in these episodes). The cartoony character designs recall the work of Osamu Tezuka: e.g., Dr. Gilmore looks like Duke Red in Metropolis. Cyborg 009 has all the elements of a classic sci-fi anime adventure, but the unexpressive, puppet-like characters, tame battles, and obvious dialogue leach the excitement out of the story. (Rated 13 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

I know it's anime, but this is REALLY cartoony.

It is not everyday you get an old anime redone from olden times, I have been a fan of cyborg 009 since my childhood and was filled with joy to see yet another series to be made; luckily for us it even appears in english and uncut at the same time.
As you must have read about the storyline and characters in Amazon.com's review of the title, there's no point in going there. So what I want to point out here, is the style the animation is done in. Though in some of later episodes ( not released in the west yet ) framerate and detail-attention drops from time to time, the series as such is almost in a Fleischer-styled - from the 30s and 40s americana yet, at the same time modern manga/anime drawn 100% on a computer -> :)
My point with this is, the Cyborgs 001 -> 009 were inventet in a more innocent time, long forgotten by most anime fans nowadays. Dealing with coldwar issues and other worldly matters of those times, plus each and every character's own struggles within themseleves - and then there's the so called 'real' action, fighting off enemies ! Ergo - not your everyday flashy "go-buy-the-toys" and "forget-the-storyline-before-the end-credits" series.
Also the team issue people; Ishinomori Shotaro I surely believe inspired the X-men, as they arrived 8 years before Stan Lee created his version, and these guys are cooler, in two words I can tell you why I think so:
matching uniforms... !

At first glance you might think this a a little kid's anime. IT IS!But can a kid's Anime have a full depth story line? I'll tell you this show will get you sucked into it. In my opinion it is better than some other animes out there. If you are looking for something new and different this might be right for you. Also if you're new to the whole "anime" genre, I highly recommend this DVD. I would tell you the story but by looking at other reviews I'm pretty sure you already know.

I think this is well worth watching, but you can read the other reviews to help you decide if you are interested. I watched Cyborg 009 - Uncut & Unedited first, which contains 8 episodes, and wanted to see more. So, I ordered Cyborg 009 - The Battle Begins, and Cyborg 009 - Good vs Evil, from Amazon. While there is no information on Amazon on the content of either of these DVDs, I just assumed that they were movies or contained other episodes. Not so! The other two DVDs each contain one disk with 4 episodes, and those 4 are already included on Cyborg 009 - Uncut & Unedited. So, there is absolutely no reason to order the other two.

I picked up these two DVDs recently. I fell in love with the show back when it was on Toonami in the afternoons. I finally saw them for a good price and I had some extra money. The DVDs do the series justice I believe, but I'm left hanging. It is a 52 episode series to the best of my knowledge, but only 8 episodes have been released on DVD? I also believe that there are several movies made, but no sign of them coming to R1 anytime in the near future either. This is a such an amazing series, but stopping it at 8 episodes seems a little cruel.

keep the faith,

dExtrosien

The last thing Joe Shimamura remembers is being chased by cops for a murder he did not commit and then falling hundreds of feet from a sea cliff. When he wakes up he's in a strange costume in some sort of laboratory and being told by a woman's voice that he must quickly escape! As he escapes he displays superhuman speed, agility, and toughness. He is no longer Joe Shimamura, but Cyborg 009, made for the sole purpose of helping the terrorist organization called Black Ghost take over the world! He's not the only cyborg that has rebelled against his purpose though. There are eight others with different superpowers that have chosen to go against their makers and destroy Black Ghost once and for all. But Black Ghost isn't going to let them go that easy. It sends out a series of cyborgs with increasing power to kill them all.

This was a great dvd set that took a nostalgic look back at Japanese animation and manga, updating a series that originated back in the 1960s. Like the anime Metropolis, the outdated character designs give Cyborg 009 a charm and personality beyond most modern anime, though they do take some getting used to, especially 001, who is sort've an infant Professor X. Then there's 004, who fires anti-tank missles from his kneecaps! While the designs are very cartoony, the animation and the score are extremely well done. The voice acting too does a good job in selling an old story for a new audience. The only thing that puzzles me is why Black Ghost continue to manufacture the cyborgs after NINE of them rebelled and fled. It seems like by the THIRD, they would've just given up on the program! It's a shame, but these eight episodes are all that have been released from the 52 shows that comprised its original run. I assume Columbia Tristar just wasn't making any money off of them. There is also a manga published by Tokyopop. Great fun!
