User Reviews

One of the Earlier Anime Franchises.
2 February 2007 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

Speed Racer aka "Mahha go go go" has been a well known anime since the Vietnam War era.

It's about the adventures and life of a young man named Speed Racer, who's always dreamed in becoming a well known racer someday. He's knowledgeable about history & is a simple minded kind of guy who only uses violence for the last resort. Speed is also a good fighter.

His father Pops Racer has built and designed a custom made race car, called the Mach 5. The most unique racing vehicle of it's kind. Equipped with power jacks, cutting blades, emulating lights, bullet proof glass, underwater travel, and a BM radio. With this car, Speed can be able to accomplish the races and grand pixes that he competes in. The Mach 5 also makes a perfect getaway vehicle and a greater advantage in escaping dangers.

Throughout the series, Speed will be going through many challenging races and adventures. As well as making enemies with Conspiracies, Mafias, Assassins, Thieves, Burglars, Rivals, & Terriosts. With the Mach 5 to drive in, and a group of reliable friends, Speed will be able to get through many hardships.

Despite it being made 40 years ago. This Japanese animated cartoon really shows it's age. And it has one of the oldest dubs to date. Cool thing about the Dub is, it manages to be the first successful Anime franchise to hit the U.S. shores and all the characters are done by 4 voice actors. Which is less than the average number in today's management of voice choices.

The voice acting is good, but very dated for it's era of time. Since this aired back when Anime wasn't highly known as it is today. But since then it has been admired and inspired by many people. I never seen the original version, but hopefully one day I will to see what it was like unedited.

It's not for everyone, but I think it's a classic for a foreign made, American distributed anime. Due to it's sophisticated scenes, cartoon violence, and car crashes. I recommend it for 6 and up.
