Natural disasters have devastated planet Zi, killing off almost all life. A thousand years later humans have gradually re-established civilization, salvaging ancient Zoids through diving and mining efforts. In a village whose most previous item is a giant sword which they worship as a holy symbol. A teenage boy discovers an ancient Liger-type Zoid while on a deep water salvage operation. Suddenly the village is attacked by skeletal Bio-Zoids intent on stealing a powerful generator located in the village. Our teenage hero awakens the Liger and discovers that the town`s sacred sword is the Liger`s weapon, together they fight off the mysterious Bio-Zoids. At least for now...

Zoids Genesis gives a different feeling other than the other Zoid series. The story is well written, animation is good and character development is one of its strong points.

The main character Ruuji, a village kid and at first a bit naive but as the story goes along, his character grows to a point where in he could be a leader. Even though the story is a bit serious, there are times when you will laugh because of how other characters are shown throughout the series.

Brand new zoids are shown which gives it a bit of originality. Murasame liger's transformations are shown with detail (especially ...

Some brave soul at Tomy finally decided to put the Liger Zero to rest. The legendary white Zoid gained a fairly large Western fanbase because of Zoids: New Century and Zoids: New Century Zero, so they probably thought they were stretching it too thin to place the Liger as the main Zoid of another Zoids series (yes, I'm talking to you, Zoids: Fuzors).

I thank that brave soul for what he did; it was a fairly smart move to get a new Zoid to play the lead role. I guess at this point they weren't focused on targeting some Western audience anymore, and just wanted to ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my first review of any anime, so constructive criticism would be welcome. Also, I will try my best not to spoil anything.

Zoids Genesis, or ZG for short, has a fairly good plot, and roughly half of the characters do get developed, though that leaves the other half with little to no development or backstory *cough*Seijurou*cough*. The plot starts off smoothly, with a rather…. “mediocre” goal, however, that goal changes as the plot progresses (and the original goal is never achieved). The change in plot however, makes it seem as though there wasn’t a change in plot, because they were basically doing the same ...
