Just wondering if anybody else has heard of it, I know it had a brief run on TechTVs Anime Unleashed, but I don't hear much of it, I have the boxset and I actually enjoy the anime quite abit, it's one of those types of show you have to watch beginning to end and waits to the very end to finally wrap itself up, even then it's easy to get lost in everything.

What do all think of it

Encode and upload it so we can make our own opinions about it.


I could, but I'm not too sure how to go about doing that

I do have the entire series on DVD, but I don't have a program to rip the episodes to my computer, plus I'm not sure how to encode stuff or anything like that, never uploaded anything and since it's on DVD it's obviously licensed, is it ok to upload that anywya?

I watched about 8 episodes. It looked pretty bland and there were a few shameless reuses of animation. I'm not even talking about flashbacks, they just took the same exact scene and spliced it into the episode at least once. I don't know, there's something about it that was just off. It's like they tried to hard to add some "Evangelion" type elements.

Really, like what, outside the mechs I didn't really think there were very many Evangelion elements, even then the mechs are barely part of the anime till the end.

Some of the character models and similar character roles, but I'm sure that can be said for quite a few anime post-Evangelion

I watched the first 4 eps of this show and I didn't like it very much. Not that anything specifically sucked, but more the fact that nothing really jumped out at me that I was impressed with.

No, she was being mentally controlled through the baby, it hinted that the baby itself was actually the cause of it, too, since it had such physic ability.

But, yea, the girl and her husband died, but the baby was found with a protective bubble around it

TechTV's Anime Unleashed was one of the best anime programming on TV, ever. Too bad it's not there anymore. Anyway, Betterman was a really odd anime to begin with. I was only able to watch it once so I didn't understand the Betterman/Best Man thing that was going on. All I remember was Lamia eating the Forte and turning into Betterman and just ripping things apart. I also didn't get what the virus Algernon did and how Hinoki was tied into the story.

Yeah, it feeds bits of peices of the reason behind Lamia and his Betterman ego slowly over the series and the true meaning behind Algernon till the very end, it only hints and guesses at it up till that point.

Hinoki channeled into a type of mental or spirital channel and basically that's how the team can find what areas will Algernon will show up next
