A cult show !!, 9 June 2003
Author: leroyca from Paris, France

I remember it when it first aired on French TV in 1985. It was an instant success in France, and being crazy about animation, I became a fan at once. And apparently, I'm still a big fan, 18 years after, when I see that I can watch 8 episodes in a row every evening since I started to watch the newly released DVDs.

"Jayce and The Wheeled Warriors" (or "Jayce et les Conquérants de la Lumière" in French) has something unique that reminds me how great those collaborations between France, Japan and USA were at the time. Jean Chalopin had created "Ulysse 31" and this show was a coproduction between France and Japan; he also gave us "Les Mystérieuses Cités d'Or", another collaboration between France, Japan and USA, like "Jayce".. Those three shows were some of the best ever on TV, along with the best Japanese animated shows.

Back to Jayce.. The story was excellent, but what strikes me the most is the weird atmosphere, a mix between space opera and magic. In each episode we discover a new planet with new rules (those planets can be considered like different countries) and I must say that some scripts were particularly good, with thought-provoking ideas. I cannot forget also that the great appeal of the series are the characters : Jayce, Herc, Gillian, Flora, Oon. You soon get very attached to them and their personalities, thanks to the situations, dialogues and voice actors. I want to pay a tribute to Gilles Laurent who dubbed our hero Jayce in French, he is one of the best voice actors ever.

The vehicles also make this series special, and the Monster Minds are so funny. Each episode is a delight.

I think this series is so good that it should have a sequel.. Hey, Jean Chalopin, give us Jayce back, give us more magic !!
