A private investigator working a routine case involving stolen technology is mortally wounded. His only hope for survival comes from sacrificing his humanity to become 8Man—a powerful cyborg crime-fighter enhanced with a living human brain. Resurrected as the ultimate high-tech vigilante, it is up to 8Man to bring the lawless to justice and put an end to the escalating cycle of violence. A classic animated thriller that will leave you breathless.

This is in my opinion a hidden gem of animation. I love the style and the simplicity of the story and characters. I mean, he's 8man, what's better than that!?!

So what if the story and character-work is basic as all, it's still fun, kind of like Speed Racer. I used to watch this with speed racer with my mother, who used to watch these when she was young. At first I thought he was called eightman because he had 8 powers, kind of like a Marvel comics villain, but to no avail.

Eightman is a great character and sadly the other shows/movies, etc, of him are ...
