Let me preface this review with a brief statement that I have been a fan of Tekkaman Blade since I first saw Teknoman (The US version) back in the 90s. As such, I'd been hoping for a release of it in pretty much any format.

Tekkaman Blade: Collection 1 features the first 16 episodes of the series, introducing D-Boy (Blade or Slade in the English versions), and the team of Space Knights he allies himself with. In the midst of an alien invasion, D-Boy alone has the ability to fight the Radam (Venomoids in the English versions) by turning into Tekkaman Blade. But while Blade is not alone, he is the sole Tekkaman who fights for humanity--The Tekkamen are in service of the Radam. D-Boy himself is a man who claims no memory of his past, not even his name (D-Boy stands for Dangerous Boy, a name given to him by the distrustful Noal), but is the only one with knowledge of the Radam threat. He is considered a traitor to the Radam and a weapon by General Colbert. The Leader of the Space Knights, Heinrich von Freeman protects blade from the machinations of Colbert, while the other Space Knights reach out to them. D-Boy is cold, convinced none of them can help him in his mission against the Radam, but the Space Knights are persistant in their attempts to make him more than just a weapon--But a friend.

I own a prior release of this series which contains both the International Dub and Japanese versions (There are two dubs; one is a US dub in which D-Boy is called "Slade," and the International version with a few different voice actors, and D-Boy is instead named "Blade."), but the picture quality is pretty awful.

The 80's is like some kind of bottomless treasure trove. Every time I think I've seen every great sci-fi movie and anime from my favorite decade, I find another awesome piece of entertainment. A while back I rented a piece of anime history known as Detonator Orgun. While I loved the character designs and basic storyline, I found the overall quality of the OAV somewhat lacking (in particular I wasn't crazy about the music). Fast-forward a few years and I found myself on a whim renting Tekkaman, just to see if it was any good. I LOVE getting surprises like THIS.

If you dig the whole "personal armor suit" genre of Bubblegum Crisis, Detonator Orgun, The Guyver, ect, you will LOVE this show. Basically it's everything a fan of 80's anime could ever want. You have a world in peril being attacked by giant bug aliens (known as the Radam), a brooding amnesiac anti-hero protagonist, the usual assortment of sidekicks to keep things from getting too serious, lots and lots and LOTS of bad guys for the hero to fight, sweet animation good enough to be a movie but instead a whole long TV show, great symphonic score soundtrack that adds so much to everything in every way, some really great story and characterization by way of an excellent script, and very good acting all around. But of course the real reason to see this show is the manic, over-the-top, explosive action sequences which feature martial-arts style fights between the hero and his many enemies, huge chain explosions of the aliens, and of FANTASTIC sound effects that sound like they came out of the remastered Gundam Trilogy. Awesome.

This version of Tekkaman Blade is simply the best! The video and audio quality is far better than Tekkaman Blade Ebay's version. The subtitles are very good and the special features have also subtitles. So if you don't know which version should buy, I recommend getting this one, especially if you are a tekkaman blade fan.
