Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter

Now this was very impressive. To think that one show could disappoint me this much. Seriously, did the creator(s) even try? The anime’s image seemed serious and filled with action, especially if you saw the pre-released content. I thought that I was watching an entirely different show, and that the subgroup had made a small mistake with the filename, but no…

The artwork is not biggest problem here. The characters actually look pretty good, the background is detailed and the cars look good too. So yeah, quality is not the problem here. It’s the character expressions that suck. It’s all so childish and dramatic that it makes me want to gauge my eyes out. It makes Pokémon look like an adult’s cartoon.

The story isn’t that impressive either. It’s not that interesting and certainly not original. Let’s face it; cars transforming into robots is absolutely nothing new. A young boy that comes in contact with one of those cars is nothing new. We’ve had something like this for years now, it’s called Transformers.

I most definitely don’t recommend this. It’s childish, uninteresting and not all that original. I can’t see myself watching this with a smile on my face, so how could I possibly recommend this? Better luck next time.

Plot Summary: In 21st century Japan, cars with artificial intelligence for increased safety, known as “A.I. cars,” have revolutionized the car industry. Special schools teaching children driving A.I. cars have been established. One day, Kakeru Todoroki, a fifth grader of Arcadia Academy, was summoned by the school principal and given an A.I. car “to save the humanity by chosen drivers like you.” The car, however, is not just a car but also a transforming robot known as “Gyrozetter.”
