Product Description

Roger Smith is Paradigm Citys top Negotiator. He solves all sorts of problems for all sorts of peoples. And when things get rough hes got some pretty big back-up: The Big O, a giant robot from an era long gone and forgotten.

Together with his faithful servant Norman and the android R. Dorothy, Roger defends Paradigm City, a city that has lost its memory after a mysterious event some forty years earlier. And Paradigm City needs a lot of defending. Fragment of Memories appears, and where they do, trouble follows. There are rogue robots, monstrous creature, and seemingly invaders from another land, and the Big O is Paradigm Citys last line of defense.

But as they battle these monsters, Roger and the others gradually uncover pieces to a bigger puzzle. A puzzle that someone doesnt want solved.

3.0 out of 5 stars why whould they do this? 10 Feb 2011
warning! This is a beez anime legends release so naturally you would expect it to contain all aired episodes of the tv series (especially as it says compleate collection on the box!) but alas it is not. It is just the first season of the great show that is big o, so unless beez release the second season you will never have the whole show. (aired series 26 episodes, box set 13 episodes)

5.0 out of 5 stars Big O 18 Mar 2013
Those cranks at Sunrise have done it again! A sleek, noir esque theme and style, mixed with futuristic steampunk technology and giant, fighting robots, The Big O has it all! With the voice of Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop, Tiger & Bunny, Ben 10, T.O.M. from Toonami) as Roger Smith, this show just screams awesomness. Originally a 26 episode series, unpopularity in Japan caused a cut down to just 13 episodes. However, us Westerners loved it so much, Cartoon Network injected some money into Sunrise to produce a second season, consisting of the remaining 13 episodes. This shows just how popular it is! Like it says on the box, this series is an anime legend and should not be missed by anime fantics whatsoever!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 7 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Stylistically, this series is pretty much perfect, with character designs that echo those of 'Batman: The Animated Series' and a cityscape that mirrors the mood of the stories. Unfortunately, its nature as a giant robot cartoon drags it down; halfway through each episode, after some satisfying set-up and mystery, necessity demands that hte villain of the week unleash some monster that must be dealt with by the Big O mecha. As each of these fights also boils down to the same sequence of moves, they get very repetetive, very quickly.

Another distracting factor for me (though not for any of you that prefer subs to dubs) is that Roger Smith is voiced by the same guy that was Spike in 'Cowboy Bebop' - doing the exact same voice. It breaks the immersion totally. The other vocal talent is passable, neither outstanding nor atrocious.

If only they'd played up the noir detective angle more and dialled back on the robot fights a tad, this truly could've been great.
