Storyline

Eighteen-year-old Joe Shimamura, a rebellious, spiky-haired half-Japanese youth, wakes up one afternoon to find himself lying on an operating-room table with a strange suit and superhuman abilities such as the ability to move faster than the human eye. After escaping from the laboratory, he soon discovers that he is the ninth in a series of cyborg weapons - ordinary humans from all over the world, captured and augmented against their wills to become devastating warriors. Some of these include a genius baby from Russia, an impoverished cook from China, and a freedom fighter from Africa. The culprit behind this act is Black Ghost, a terrorist group that aims for money and power by selling illegal weaponry to warring nations worldwide. Based on the classic but unfinished Japanese comic book by the late manga godfather Shoutarou Ishinomori, Cyborg 009 follows the story of the nine cyborg rebels as they seek to halt the sinister intentions of Black Ghost while also attempting to deal with ...

Needs more respect in America marketing
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best anime and manga series of Japan.

It's been around for 40 years but it's anime never had an English before.

This here is the only Cyborg 009 series that got it's own English Dub.

It's a good one too where all the characters sound the way they should.

The whole series is about 9 prototype cyborgs who were once regular humans. Each of them was capture by the Black Ghost Organization. Lead by a mysterious being, The Black Ghost who wants to achieve in world domination. The 9 Cyborgs left and betrayed Black Ghost because they prefer world peace than to see the world in pain.

Each one is different from the other. With their skills and teamwork they'll be able to defeat anything the Black Ghost uses to stop them including other cyborgs and machines that are lethal.

The downside is they only released the first 8 episodes of this series on DVD. And I read that there's more than 8 episodes. I think it deserves to have full treatment like other anime do. I hope a different distributor will get the rights to this and the other Cyborg anime for a better treatment in releasing them on DVD.
