How to Watch Cyborg 009 by inertbiscuit How to Watch Cyborg 009 by inertbiscuit
===EDIT 09/08/10

WE HAVE PETITIONS!!!

:bulletred: Petition for streaming Cyborg 009 on American websites. This is American only because they block them from other countries.

:bulletred: Petition for releasing Cyborg 009 on DVD. I know several of you have merchandise you import or get someway from America, where ever this DVD is released, I must ask you to do that again.


===END EDIT


Well, this is part of my answer to the question of the week over at Anime News Network. The question is:

"What old series/movie are you interested in that the new crop of fans is completely uninterested in? Why do you think that is? What steps would you take to reverse it."

UPDATE!! My post and comic was posted! Just scroll to the bottom of this article. Glad to see several 009 fans commenting in the forum ^^

Well, I don't think I need to tell you what series I enjoy XD

Seriously, this show had a prime place to gain a following, the Toonami block on weekdays in the 2000's was THE PLACE for animation. But, it didn't garner enough favor to appease the rating gods and it was banished to like 4:30am. What is more disheartening is the series never ran its course in broadcast, missing the last 4 episodes, and we cannot even view it through other means like a streaming site or DVDs.

It just makes me sad. :( I wish, I could petition streaming sites to run the series in full, that would be a dream, though, I am unsure how to go about doing that.

Damn it ! I can stand the fuzziness in some episodes, cuz the audio is either good or decent, but episode 48 kills me, decent picture quality, bad audio. Damn it.

That last panel!!! XD
I don't know, but it somehow gives me the impression that they are staring at us, asking if we DO watch them. Or, they're just simply surprised by Al's comment. Which makes it funny because Al is surprised with his own comment. >v<

Hells yeah! Sure the manga's plot had more holes than swiss-cheese, it still deserves more love!

Seriously, what happened after they fought the Mythos cyborgs? Did they die? Was it all a dream? Was it a retcon? I'M SO CONFUSED!

omg, the storytelling in the manga at the beginning was just... terrible! XD

On the wikipedia page, there was a break between Ishinomori's work on the manga, between volumes 7 and 8. So I try to think this was something of a 'ending'. Kind of a statement of fighting and war gets you nowhere... Still is a lame story end! Glad he got back to the series with volume 8!

Indeed, but he also tried to end it in volume ten(which some consider the REAL ending) but after being told the that ending was GOD AWFULLY DEPRESSING he realized he kept the series going. I feel he was fighting every urge to give it a sad sci-fi ending, which is why the series never had an ending before he died. Which ironically the absence of an ending is the saddest ending possible.

So true, so true!

As I understood, Ishinomori's son is working on an ending for 009 in Japan, based on his father's notes. Though I haven't seen any progress on that in a while, so I don't know the state of it.

Wish Ishinomori could've made the ending himself.

And I didn't know his son was working on the ending, sweet! As long as I see it before I am reformatted, alls good!

But what about that chick who looked like Helen after the time skip? Was she related to her? Its confusing.

And when they reminisce about first meeting each other Joe remembers 007 as a kid when he first met him, yet he gained a youth's body later on due to his molecular changing ability constantly resetting his metabolism. Yet when he remembers when he first met him he's a kid. Honestly I'd like to think that when 001 and the psychic Mythos cyborg clashed it was so powerful that it reset the entire universe! Either that or Ishinimori wasn't that good a writer. I love the guy and all, but his stuff is RIDDLED with as many plot-holes as there are cyborgs and depressing sci-fi endings.

they were sisters. *Spoiler* 004 fell in love with Bina but in the end, she and her other 3 sisters died.

Well, I'll be honest, I don't remenber the episode you're talking about ^^;

I think the same as you, I was so confused with the last episode(*spoilers* joe defeats black gost, destroys his giant robot in space, jet/002 comes to the rescue but then they fall into earth, cathing fire in the process. In the end, I didn't know if they lived or died >.>)

Oh my god I'm laughing so hard no noise is coming out, that last panel omg---

Anyway, It is really sad to know that the story of Cyborg 009 didn't get very much glory, as apart from the mediocre animation and the terrible subbing (I had to re-watch at least 16 scenes to even know what the hell was going on) the story it's self is simply glorious. I wish they would do a re-create of the 2001 version, and include the alternate ending--via episodes 49-51 and actually /finish/ the alternate ending, even though the artist himself died before he could complete it.

Too true. I was trying to watch it a while ago and while they have some subbed episodes on youtube, you have to like decipher them and figure out what they are attempting to say. Awkward but good for a laugh at poor grammer. I just wish they had all of the 1979 episodes online. Those are EPIC but I can only find some of them. :tantrum:

Yeah I had to go on a huge internet hunt. :sherlock: I was able to find some of the missing episodes because someone made a music video and some of the clips were from the missing ones. It was in Italian,I think, so I searched the Italian episode titles and voila I found some. They're unsubbed so I can't understand them but at least I know it's there.

I couldn't agree more! This show was the shit! and it didn't get the recognition it deserved! i partially blame the Cartoon Network censorship, if they would've said "damn" more than just once and kept some of the more darker themes, it think it would've been more popular.

BUT Have you heard of the cgi movie coming out in 2013?:

oh gosh yes! This show was MADE for the age group they were going for! They could've kept it 100% in-tact and be fine.

oh yes, I am very familiar with this film, I follow the daily updates from the production company ^^ I'm most excited to hear, that even before the film is being released in Japan, an English script is in production. What for??? Not sure, at the very least, I hope subtitles on the Japanese Blu-Ray.

I would LOVE to see it again. I never saw much of the 2001(?) version, but I have seen the much older versions. I wish Tokyopop would bring back their English version of the manga (which I have in original Japanese and it looks like the Dead Sea Scrolls!).

Cute cartoon, btw! :D
