The Adventures Of Gentaro And Goro
10 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a Japanese TV show about two guys who fight over 26 episodes three separate and distinct factions that want to take over everything. This is really for teens, so I am not the target audience, so the review is based on that. The two guys are kind of immature, again something that would appeal more to teens. Women in this series do not fare well, most of them end up dying or ignored. The special effects are, at times, pretty bad in that buildings are obvious toy models. Okay, but here are some good things: In the good versus evil category, the series teaches trust, resolve and friendship. The Iron King of the title is a giant superhero, conjured up when Gentaro needs someone to help him in his attempts to thwart the enemy. Those sequences are fun. If you watched this as a child/teen then, you'd smile, especially realizing how advanced special effects have become. Adults can skip this, its pretty much a young person's show. My review of 6 is mixed. Kids up to 16 or so may rate this higher.
