Zoids—powerful animal-shaped combat mechs—are no longer used in warfare, but in organized sporting competitions. The Blitz Team, a group of pilots struggling to carve out a niche for themselves in the Zoid battling leagues, experience a stroke of luck when Bit Cloud, a vagrant junk dealer, wanders into their midst and proves himself capable of piloting the temperamental Liger Zero, a Zoid that refuses to let anyone else into its cockpit. Led by Bit and the Liger, the Blitz Team steadily make their way to the top—but along the way they attract the unwelcome attention of the Backdraft Group, an organization of Zoid pilots that operates outside the laws set down by the Zoid Battle Commission. The Backdraft want powerful Zoids to add to their ranks, and they have their eye on the Liger Zero...

Zoids: New Century/Zero, the second series of the Zoids saga that's even better than the original!

As typical for a Shounen there isn't much of a story, every episode is basically just another fight scene and, of course, the heroes always win, but this time the story isn't so serious. In Chaotic Century, Zoids were strictly used as weapons of war, but in New Century Zoids are used for sporting competitions where no one dies and even if you lose you can just get back up and try again. There's much less tension and drama in New Century which I really like because I never took read more

Time to review a blast from the past! Zoids Zero was a popular show on Cartoon Network's Toonami block in the early 2000s. The show largely existed to sell awesome toy models, much like Hasbro's Transformers from the 1980s, but it was still a decent show and not just a glorified toy commercial.

Plot: 6/10

The plot is that piloting giant robots and fighting in epic team battles is now the most popular sport on Earth, or whatever the hell planet this takes place on. The main team is called the Blitz team and in the tradition of sports movie cliches goes from a bunch of read more

I don't know what it is, but I've been reliving my childhood a lot lately. Maybe, as college approaches, I want to remember all the good times I had as kid. I got into anime in the fourth grade via Sailor Moon (didn't everyone?), and once Toonami started airing anime all the time, I got hooked. I don't know exactly when I discovered the wide world of anime outside my TV, but if it wasn't for Cartoon Network bringing it over, I probably wouldn't be such an avid member of the anime fandom.

One show that Toonami aired was Zoids: New Century Zero, or, as the read more

I am making these scores based on a standard set by all American Dubbed Anime. I'm talking the abominations that became Bleach and Naruto. The laughable (but cherished) memories of DBZ and Ronin Warriors. All Anime that when aired in America...were utterly ruined by abysmal voice actors and edited scenes all to hell.

When i sit back and look at Zoids for what it is, an American Dubbed anime, i am left in awe of it's prowess. The voice acting was actually something i felt little shame for. The plot was fun and amusing, but it incorporated enough twists, revelations and read more

Anime: Mobile Fighter G Gundam
Both have a tournament style of mech-fighting, with a cocky pilot as the main character who yells the names of his attacks

The mech they each use both have a special attack where the hands of their robot start to glow as well as other parts of their body

Anime: Mokei Senshi Gunpla Builders Beginning G
Battling robot tournaments with shoutouts to other series? Yes please. Beginning G is much more blatantly an advertisement, and is much shorter than Zero, but similar in many ways.

Anime: IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (2005)
Both feature giant robots in a tournament-style competition.

Anime: Medarot
Both series are interesting twists on robot toy competition shows, the twist is that they're awesome. They both rely on good writing and humor, along with just enough Super robot-esque glowing and attack yelling to be considerably badass. The soundtracks are kind of similar too.

You put Zoids (any Zoids series) and Gundam Seed together, and you get Gin-iro no Olynsis.

Blonde Haired Boy hasn't amounted to anything, he then finds an old Mech and proves that this Mech is better than the others.
