Continuation of Teppei's journey with B't X to rescue his brother Kotaro Takamiya from the Machine Empire. The OAV series picks off from the TV series from the point where Hokuto successfully saves both Teppei and B't X and makes B't X far more powerful than before.
I'm surprised no one else has written a review for this yet.
B'T X Neo, the sequel to B'T X, is by far much better than it's predecessor.
The story takes the original premise and dives much deeper into a darker, more exciting plot.
It follows on Teppei's quest to defeat the Machine Empire and save his Damsel-man in distress brother. If it stopped just at that, I'd have chucked my copy in the bin, BUT, instead it works on fleshing out our characters. We delve into their pasts, into their relationships. We look into the dark past of the Machine Empire, of the war, of the reasons
and the motivations our Heroes draw strength from.
Sounds cliche right? But it isn't. It's dark, bloody, and damn straight depressing. But it's GOOD.
Travelling towards the climax of the story, the writers have managed to insert an intensely epic atmosphere into the original story. It's what classics are made of.
The religious undertones provide a kind of mythical, mysterious darkness to the story. You start to question humanity, you start to question what is right and what is wrong. The great thing about this story is that it doesn't beat you over the head with either. You can choose to watch this philosophically, or you can equally switch your brain off and watch it for sheer excitement/enjoyment.
...I did both former and latter from time to time.
It also has heaps of twists and turns that sort of leave you jaw-dropped for a second or two. For me personally there were also heaps of heart-wrenching moments that really made me want to curl into a corner and cry my eyes out. If an anime can do that, you know you've got something good.
Improved from the prequel. You'll find the colours are more striking and the detail better.
OST still kicks ass.
Improved significantly. The twists and turns keep you addicted and as with the prequel --you never know who's going to win (in the long run I mean).
Fan-f***ing-tastic. Epic. Classic. Exciting. Thrilling. Funny. Heart-warming/wrenching. EMOTIVE (which is always a good thing).
the story picks off from the t.v serie´s wich goes in a far darker tone and more serious aswel the plot directs in a very twisted and acceptable closure. seems many ppl haven´t heard the ova´s or seen it ( yes its oldskool, deal with it ). I liked the t.v series a lot, but the ova a lot more. New charachters that appears in the scene, both good and bad, each having a story to tell about their past and stuff wich in not like a no brainer putted in just to fill it all up or rush it, no its quite
well done and tought through. same for the new apprerances of mystical/-like-mecha creatures. i don't remember much of the ova's , but Pegasus gets and powerfull upgrade and the Original owner returns wich develop in an sort of dissapointment between the owner and the current holder of Pegasus, wich Black Pegasus comes into the story.I like the nice 'superhero' intro that fitted, very good background animation and little to non pussy chara. that annoys you in the show. and it has some funny moments ofc.
