Get Ride! AMDRIVER

Post by Grebo Guru » Thu Dec 30, 2004 12:27 am

OK, so Ive watched a few episodes of this show, and I gotta say -- it sucks.

Its mecha, however, are really cool! All those "Bisars" (I'm convinced its supposed to be "Visors") are pretty sweet. In fact, in many ways the show strikes me as a kind of technological sequel to Mospeada.

Check out the spiffy toys here:

:shock:

Those designs give me nostaglic goosegumps! They seriously got a Studio Artmic vibe going!

And I like it.

The show itself dosen't look that promising....Your standard fluff to be exact,and apparently,this seems to be based off of a video game of sorts.

It does have a Mospeada sense in a way,though hints of Gall Force too.

Believe it or not,I'd like to see a remake of that series,but that's a different story in itself.

Awww. You said it sucks? That's too bad. It looks like they had serious potential with this idea. The mechs look rather good/clean/agile, and the characters look good. Except the blonde. Poorly drawn.

Oh well. Yes, they remind me of something too, but I'm not sure what.

Yeah, the toys are pretty neat. I got a Neo Ragna off of good old eBay, and all the gimmicky little weapons are great. Unfortunately, most of the bisars are just a little too expensive to import for the time being.
