Zoids—powerful animal-shaped combat mechs—are no longer used in warfare, but in organized sporting competitions. The Blitz Team, a group of pilots struggling to carve out a niche for themselves in the Zoid battling leagues, experience a stroke of luck when Bit Cloud, a vagrant junk dealer, wanders into their midst and proves himself capable of piloting the temperamental Liger Zero, a Zoid that refuses to let anyone else into its cockpit. Led by Bit and the Liger, the Blitz Team steadily make their way to the top—but along the way they attract the unwelcome attention of the Backdraft Group, an organization of Zoid pilots that operates outside the laws set down by the Zoid Battle Commission. The Backdraft want powerful Zoids to add to their ranks, and they have their eye on the Liger Zero...

So get this. Here I am, on a ride home from a local Smash Bros tournament with a fellow weeb friend, and I bring up Zoids, the semi-popular show of our childhood. I bring up the idea of rewatching it and he's like, "Nah, I know it's gonna be bad if I look at it now".

To have this mentality toward a show you watched and loved as a child is fully understandable, but it is my humble opinion that no show subverts this stigma better than Zoids New Century/Zero. This review will cover why I firmly believe that.

First, a bit of history. Like the rest ...

Zoids: New Century/Zero, the second series of the Zoids saga that's even better than the original!

As typical for a Shounen there isn't much of a story, every episode is basically just another fight scene and, of course, the heroes always win, but this time the story isn't so serious. In Chaotic Century, Zoids were strictly used as weapons of war, but in New Century Zoids are used for sporting competitions where no one dies and even if you lose you can just get back up and try again. There's much less tension and drama in New Century which I really like because I never took ...

You could say it's the second series of the Zoids anime, but in a different time and era.
Here all the Zoids in the first series are already there, and there is nothing new or interesting.

Honestly, I think this is very boring, the algorithm of this anime story is almost the same for every episode, for example, like living an ordinary life, meeting someone who will become an enemy or opponent, fighting, in the middle of a fight, Liger Zero goes and changes costumes, then comes back and defeats the enemy and wins. It's so boring to see him like that in every episode.

Very different from ...
