I'll agree with the reviewer's marks on Infini-T Force here.
This was one of the shows I was interested in for Fall '17. And overall, I felt it met my expectations While not quite 'forced', how our displaced heroes came together seemed to work well enough.
I especially enjoyed how Ken's character was played straight, culturally. The generational clash in worldview between Ken and Emi was definitely a positive element.

Glad to hear that it's a good show, because I was interested in checking it out. I must say, though, that the anime sounds to be the complete opposite in terms of tone than the manga version that Udon is putting out, as I read Volume 1. In that version, Emi isn't the least bit suicidal, but instead of rather happy-go-lucky, if a little klutzy in her obsession with tinkering with stuff. Also, the Tatsunoko heroes aren't introduced all together, but instead each chapter of the 1st volume introduces them one at a time. Finally, the heroes actually don't all get along, especially Polymar & Ken the Eagle, who have differing ideas as to how to deal with "evil". The preview for Volume 2 indicates that Polymar will become a bit of a dark vigilante, punishing criminals for their actions, rather than simply apprehending them.

Really, all I'm saying is that I appreciate how each version of Infini-T Force, anime & manga, is very tonally different from the other, so it looks like it's definitely worth checking both out.

^Yes, they're totally different! I like aspects of each - for example, I prefer the manga's Tetsuya and Emi - but I overall appreciate how they both take the same concept and create a totally different story. If you like the concept but can't deal with anime Emi (as I remember some people saying in the preview guide), the manga might be the better version to check out. (Even if so far it doesn't have Friender. Boo.)


TymersRealm, I have to admit that my sister and I called Ken "70s Man" for most of the show for just that gap. Laughing

I guess I'm missing something, because I thought this show was terrible. It felt like a generic fujo harem with Tatsunoko characters slapped on. That's not even to to speak of the awful cg. I know we've been spoiled by Land of the Lustrous, but this literally felt like watching PlayStation cutscenes. Granted I still haven't watched the last two episodes, but I doubt that much will change.

Where is this streaming on? I'm an old school Tekkaman fan and I didn't realize this had already come out.

Viz is streaming it on their site, and you can also watch it on Tubi, which is where I saw it.

As I mentioned before, Nelvana is working on the Battle of the Planets reboot. Will you please check it out?
