009 Re: Cyborg Reviews
a shitty plot. Not worth watching again.
In time the story goes into the finding the answer to the never-ending existential question of who we are, our origins, and God. All is explored through the 9 cyborgs who gather together to save the world.
If you are not familiar with the original series of CYBORG 009 , here is the list of our 9 heroes, and their ethnic backgrounds:
Russian Ivan Whisky, Cyborg 001 (Toshiba Fukjita) who is barely 1 year old but has enhanced telekinetic and teleportation powers. American Cyborg 002 Jet Link (Ryotaro Okaiyu) is an NSA agent and possesses the ability to fly at a supersonic speed, thanks legs that transform into rockets. 003 is Francoise Arnoul (Houko Kawashima), a French female cyborg who can detect and access worldwide networks thanks to enhanced hearing and sight. 004 is Albert Heinrich (Kazuya Nakai) a German cyborg whose entire being is made up of deadly weapons. Native American Geronimo Jr Cyborg 005 (voiced by Hisao Egawa) is equipped with superhuman strength. Chinese chef Chang Changku is Cyborg 006 (Naoki Tatsuta) can breathe and shoot fire! Cyborg 007 is Great Britain (Masaya Onosaka) is a spy for the British secret service and is able to blend in with any substance. African Cyborg 008 Pyunma (Hikaru Midorikawa) has the ability to live and breathe underwater, even in depths of up to 10km. Their fearless leader, Cyborg 009, Joe Shimamura (Hiroshi Kamiya) possesses all the technology of the other eight heroes in one deadly weapon.
Despite being fully CG, the animation was treated with a cel-shader, enabling the film to retain the look of traditional hand-drawn animation, giving rise to a cel looking CG animation.
