glad to see series has a happy ending
11 July 2002 | by gjhongSee all my reviews

These are the final 26 episodes of the Saber Marionette J series. In these adventures we visit the country of Xian, one of the six city-states of the Planet Teratoo, hence the title "J to X". The character designs are pretty much the same as the first TV series with the drawings a little less rough looking. Bloodberry's costume is a little different but that is about the only change, Lime and Cherry look the same.

First of all I have to praise the producers for bringing the series to an end before they ran out of ideas as sometimes happens in other shows. In the first series we found out the true purpose of the marionettes with hearts and the story could have ended at that point with only a few loose ends. The second series explored a few important topics like the place for marionettes in the new world order and how Otaru will continue his relationship with his three androids. The purpose of the mysterious Dr. Hess from the first series is revealed. A big surprise happens in episode 25 and I understand episode 26 never appeared on Japanese TV but went to video instead. If you liked the original adventures you will definitely want to see the conclusion. Somehow Otaru always manages to avoid choosing his favourite marionette!
