I'm a bit of a sucker for mecha-with-a-plot, so this one was a favourite of mine while growing up. It was like my shounen balance to my love of Sailor Moon at the time. --Which pretty much means it ...was almost the opposite of Sailor Moon (which is a good thing for shounen).

Story: 8/10
Big baddy versus talented youth SOUNDS cliche, but what really sets this story apart is the world and how dark it eventually gets. The world-building is done wonderfully here. It's a wonderful mesh between what we consider the 'real world' and a dark, dystopian world of mecha.

If you are very familiar with Kurumada Masami, many of the plot and character elements share a lot in common with some of his earlier works, specifically Saint Seiya and Ringu ni Kakero. For example, family bond and longing to reunite with a lost sibling is once again an emphasized theme in this series. It gives Teppei a strong motivation to go on an initial one man mission to fight an empire to save his brother. Though in Saint Seiya, Seiya wanting to find his sister gets sidetracked until nearly the end, this element is consistent throughout the series.

Another Kurumada-sensei characteristic is a female read more

Story
Although at first glance, B'tX appears to be 'just another mecha story', it's a little bit more than that. The story is excellent, but it is executed poorly - it has potential that is just never truly used. It's similar in concept to 'Zoids'. The idea that bio-mechanical, intelligent mecha creatures mingle with humans is interestingly placed into the story, but there are many cliche's and it's easy to predict what will happen next. It's a sad case of works-in-theory but not in execution. Overall, I gave it a six because coming from the studio that produced Akira I expected a little bit more.

And i never thought that another 90´s anime serie would catch my eye like this one, the goddamn happiness will never end :). This was an famous anime serie in italy in the 90's asnd spain, what i heard from friends so i checked it out and was hooked from the start! its starts strong and it ends simple AND STRONG!For me the best overall was the socalled reincarnation- of -magical creatures- into -mechaform or sort of, well done for handdrawing. Ok its one of those serie's that start with an flashy superhero intro and stuff, but its getting there read more

Recommendations

Created both by Masami Kurumada. Both comprising of wild sideburns, heavy punches, impulsive main characters, shiny armors, effeminate characters and references to mythology.
Both heavily feature combat sequences, and both have animal-like robots, as well as having the same basic 'Good Versus Evil' plot.

Opening Theme

"~Haruka~ Sailing for my Dream" by Fence of Defense

Ending Theme

"Boku no Ikikata" by Blue Boy
