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 read more

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 read more

A fairly typical mecha show. The plot is much stronger than most of the other Zoids series, which is what makes Genesis worth watching. The removal of basically all the old Zoids may be a turn off for long time Zoids fans, but on the other hand, it's good to have a breath of new life into the series. The battles are interesting, and the animation is very good. It does use CGI-inspired graphics, but it is well polished, and the Zoids have excellent run-cycles.

One of the better mecha shows, although it does suffer from being a tad cliche and typical, a must watch read more

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 read more
