Gotta love it!, 23 September 2004
Author: Ferry Rudolph from Zutphen, The Netherlands

About a year I came across this show. I am a person who watches pretty much everything if I got nothing to do. But I soon found that I rather liked this show.

Unlike most Japanese shows it does not try to sell a product (Yu-Gu-Oh!). Sure there are the Medabots toys but the show never indicated that. It could have been just another cartoon which did not even have a toyline to support.

The story is great. Ikki a young boy who has always wanted a Medabot finds an medal in a river and buys an outdated Medabot which he names Metabee. But Metabee is a little different than Ikki wanted because he has attitude and will not obey Ikki.

But over time the two develop a friendship and that will help them face every challenge and the people who want to steal Metabee's rare medal.

I love the show because it has great characters and a lot of humor. The characters are well done and are nice and distinct. Ikki could have been better because he is the typical arrogant kid (think Pokemon's Ash) but that changes slowly as well.

But Metabee is great and so is Rokusho another of my favorites. And who could forgetb Mr. Referee? I also liked how the French Team was depicted in the final episodes with the World Robattle. They tried to win with cheating which is so realistic. So French.

In all this show is a must see! Try it for yourself, you will not be disappointed!
