Ultra Cool!
9 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first started watching this series on TechTv's "Anime Unleashed", I think it was cool. It had lots of action, this series was one of the best sci-fi anime I have ever seen. I really wanted this series for my collection and I did. My mother bought me the entire collection for Christmas, and I got to see all the episodes in order. It was pretty cool all right. I think all of Lamia's forms of BetterMan are cool. They are:Nebula, Dragon-like form of Lamia,Aqua,SuperSonic Water form of Lamia,Forte,Second most powerful form of Betterman, and Oltus,Ultimate form of Betterman. Another thing that is cool about the show. Keita get to pilot the mighty Kakusajin along with Hinoki, when they are together. They sometimes take control. And when Hinoki tells Keita that he has control. Keita yells:"I HAVE CONTROL". The Kakusajin transforms, it also uses a special technique called Synapse Attack. It's a very powerful technique. I think the rest of the series is kinda cool. The series features the voices cast famous for Fancy Lala,Crest of the Stars, Jubei Chan, Angel Links, G-Gundam, and others. In closing, if you've seen it on TechTV and like it. Add it to your DVD collection, you will see what I mean.
