Pretty, but empty.

Good animation, OK music, horrible everything else. This series is a waste of time. I've heard for a long time that this series was awful, and I didn't want to believe it. I mean, it has Takaya/Tekkaman Blade right? How awful could it be?

Well I'll tell you how awful. The first two episodes of this six episode oav series are wasted on developing a character that basically disappears for the rest of the series. Between the first episode and the second episode is particularly bad. One character has a huge fight with another character, and then the next episode, it's never mentioned again. Then suddenly one of the characters is trying to be nice to the other one with no basis established for her doing so. The middle episodes were out and out boring, too. I saw them yesterday... yesterday! I can't tell you what happened in them!

There are plot threads dropped not only from the original Tekkaman Blade, but within the oav series as well! Character A states she's going to stop at nothing to make character B her boyfriend, but nothing ever comes of it. Seriously. And this is built up for like two or three episodes. Why did we have to waste so much time with them?

D-Boy is totally wasted here; Aki gets some screen time, but I'm not sure I liked it. Honda's around, which is cool, but where the hell is Levin?! Noal and Milly's fates are never really disclosed either, despite it being only ten years later.

Things finally get interesting in the last two episodes... but it has NOTHING to do with the premise it set up for Tekkaman Blade II, and NOTHING AT ALL to do with Tekkaman Blade! The whole plot line of the Radam continuing to assault earth, not addressed, not tied up at all. This was not a space opera, this was a soap opera largely set on earth. There is very little action.

I loved Tekkaman Blade because first and foremost, it was about the struggle of a single burning soul in the darkness to do the right thing, no matter how many times and how many, many ways he got screwed over. Something very rare in this romance obsessed era we're now living in. But Tekkaman Blade II... well we have a couple of characters with the potential for their stories to be about more than crappy love triangles, yet this is all we get!

This show was a slap in the face to fans of Tekkaman Blade. Don't bother wasting your time with this. I've heard so many negative things about Tekkaman Blade II over the years, I'm shocked the other reviews on this site are freaking glowing!
