Cyborg 009 was created in 1964 by famed artist Shotaro Ishinomori. It's presented in a variety of media since that time, from manga, TV series, movies, to video games, it's been seen all across the world, and beloved my many.

Cyborg 009 Introduction


The reason for this success is not hard to find. It has a strong central cast of characters, who were kidnapped and turned into cyborgs against their will by an evil organization. This organization, Black Ghost, created them to use them as weapons of war for hire. The cyborgs rebel against them and vow to fight on, and rid the world of the atrocities of Black Ghost and others. From hidden wars to biological experimentation, the cyborgs confront these issues and must handle the physical and mental stresses and continue with their mission.

One of the latest incarnations of this series is an anime created in 2001. With bold digital paints, retro styling, and stunning backgrounds, it's a well crafted tribute to the original story. Sadly, this series has not seen a proper release for home viewing outside of Japan, even though it aired in dozens of countries. In the US, the program never even finished its proper broadcast on Toonami, the episodes never seen in an English-speaking country. While enjoying the fandom, we ask for your help!

Petitions for Cyborgs!!!


:bulletred: Petition for streaming Cyborg 009 on American websites. This is American only because they block them from other countries.

i remember that they used to show some episodes on cartoon network, but i dont really remember seeing much of it anywhere else except the internet every once in a while, though never in good quality or even in english, which is a real shame because it truly was a fantastic series...

Yes, many of us think it's a great show, glad you have fond memories of it. There are a good amount of the English episodes on YouTube, and the rest are poorly translated from the fansub. If you need to see anything, I have links to those if you like. :-)

Hopefully we get enough signatures on the petitions and we can petitions the companies for a proper release!

The most important reason why I like the old Cyborg 009 is that the Swedish dub for it is extraordinarily special.
It's all dubbed by one man, doing all the voices, with little grasp of Swedish grammar and language melody. In fact, he was the distributor of the series. This leads to an endless parade of hilarious dialogue, and a throng of unforgettable quotes. He really tried to make it serious and dramatic, too... Thank you, "Carsten", for all your hard work.

Oh yes, I've heard of the 'specialness' of this dub. I've listened to a few clips on YouTube, its amazing hearing the man strain his voice to hit different tones.

Wait, the man didn't know Swedish well?! :rofl: that's... amazing. But as you say, his work has endeared in the childhood of many, and we thank him for that. :heart:

Yes, it's of course hard to hear if you don't know the language, but he mispronounces things all the time, and the rythm is totally off. I must say he's pretty good at actually keeping the voices consistant, though, considering there are 10 main characters and a lot of extras in every episode. And yes, he did all 52 episodes of the old series. The whole thing is a marvel, really.
