While so far it hasn’t captivated me, I did want to give it a chance because it was listed on Funimation’s “Things to Watch” reel. Usually, when something is listed at the top of the Funimation list, it’s pretty good. However, I’m finding it hard to stay engaged in this one.
We’re introduced to Robby, a man who ran away from his wealthy family and stole his fathers’ space ship. He wants to be rich without working and borrows money from loan sharks because he wants to invest in business’ that all seem to be scams.
Eventually, he consolidates his loans with one loan shark named, Yang, but because he borrows more money after the consolidation Yang sends a debt collector after him.
The debt collector turns out to be Hatchi. We meet Hatchi briefly after he recovers a bag of money that was stolen from Robby right after he borrowed it. He ends up being the person who is hired to recover that money for Yang from Robby.
While running away from Yang and his “Henchmen” (if you can even call them that) Robby, Hatchi, and Ikki escape into space. Hatchi stays with the group because he’s excited about the unpredictable nature of the journey and Robby just wants to get away from his debtors by reaching Isakandar.
Space Odyessy adventures are always fun. Robby and Hachi seem to find themselves visiting planets around the solar system and inadvertently helping the natives of that planet discover their identity. They also have a bunch of fun and goofy encounters with each other and supporting characters.
Also whenever there is a Mega Zord involved, it’s always a good time. The Zord is introduced as the cosmic entity only to find out that it’s hollow inside and at one point they almost drown inside of it because it isn’t able to adapt.
I have seven episodes left to watch. I’m expecting to find out more about Hachi. He is the mysterious character in the group and has a hidden past that hasn’t been revealed yet. He did mention that he couldn’t or wouldn’t go back home. I’m hoping there is more about that exposed.
At the end of episode five, a group of unknown people are concerned that Robby and Hachi left the solar system. I wonder if they are involved in Hachi’s past or if they are involved in something less interesting like Robby’s debt collectors.
It’s available on Amazon, Hulu, and Funimation if you want catch up on this show and share your opinion with me.
