The Big O/the Big O Ii

THE BIG O ANIME(ENGLISH SUBTITLES) – EPISODE 2

I grew up on big robots. From Battle of the Planets to Voltron, my childhood had them aplenty. And, of course, Robotech, the show that took transforming mecha to a whole new level, was the lynchpin to my anime addiction that now is seen weekly via this website. I also like film noir, the classic pulpy ’30s detective stories that you imagine in black and white with a slow jazz combo in the background. The Big O is a fusion between the two, taking in these parts and shaking in a bit of the 1920s silent film Metropolis and the animated version of Batman for good measure. But all these great ingredients have somehow made a lousy stew. It has plenty of style, but The Big O has wound up being one of my biggest anime disappointments.

The development of The Big O was rocky, but it explains a great deal of my issues with the show. Though the show’s creators planned for a 26-episode run, it was resized before broadcast to 13 episodes, which changed their whole approach. These first 13 episodes were completed and aired in Japan to a lukewarm response. However, Cartoon Network found it surprisingly popular when they aired it in America, and they commissioned and broadcast a second 13-episode season three years after the first season had gone off the air in Japan. Cartoon Network had the option to create 26 additional episodes but did not do so.

Many anime fans remember their very first taste of anime, whether it was Robotech after school, Fullmetal Alchemist on Adult Swim, or streaming here on Crunchyroll. For fans of my generation, Toonami was crucial, bringing together classics like Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho, Trigun, and my personal favorite, The Big O, in a single afternoon block. Today marks the 20th anniversary of The Big O in Japan, and it’s the perfect show to be nostalgic for, since it’s all about a city haunted by a forgotten past and the hunt for lost memories. There was nothing quite like it at the time in 1999, and there’s still nothing quite like it today. Younger fans may have missed the hype on this uniquely stylish mecha noir entirely, so it’s the perfect time for a drive down Paradigm City’s memory lane. Big O… it’s showtime!

The Big O: A Forgotten Anime Classic

Released: 1999-2003Studio: SunriseEpisodes: 26

In the wake of Neon Genesis Evangelion over 25 years ago, the mecha genre has had few standouts. The Big O should have been one of them. It’s an anime unlike any other, a blending of Eastern and Western animation trends and storytelling styles to create an easily approachable yet extremely complex tale. What begins as Batman: The Animated Series wherein our rich, perpetually black-clad protagonist solves Paradigm City’s problems as The Negotiator, slowly becomes an existential battle, not only for Roger’s sense of place in the universe, but the entire city’s as well.

The first season of The Big O is mostly episodic. In it we follow Roger Smith, the pilot of a lumbering giant robot called Big O. The city, Paradigm, lost all of its memories 40 years ago but life has continued regardless. Inside the city, domes were built for the rich to live under while the poor are forced to subside outside in squalor. Androids walk among humans and giant robots called Mega Deuces appear seemingly whenever someone remembers something they should have forgotten. In pursuit of those memories is the Paradigm Corporation and its mentally unstable chairman, Alex Rosewater.

Ironically enough “the city of amnesia” in which The Big O takes place will stick with you for a long time after watching.

    Big O Tropes Showtime:

    Roger Smith Big O BigO Watch Anime Big O Functional Replica
  • In “Leviathan”, Big O grabs the titular Megadeus’s pincers at the wrist during their battle, then wrestles them into Leviathan itself so it will turn itself to dust. It helps that Roger already shot off its head, so it’s in no position to struggle.
  • In “The Third Big”, Big O does this against Bonaparte.
  • Breather Episode
  • “The Greatest Villain”, which comes straight after 2 back-to-back dead serious episodes.
  • “Hydra” is a relative breather episode. While it has several important points such as Roger’s memory of being in some sort of war, as well as the re-energization of Big Fau, it comes right after the two-parter of “Stripes” and “The Third Big”, which includes Big Fau’s first appearance and the revelation of the Union and is followed by what is basically the beginning of the Grand Finale.
  • Briefcase Full of Money: How Roger negotiates Dorothy’s release from Beck in the first episode. When he realizes Beck played him with a robot, he triggers rockets in the case which brings it back to him. Beck’s cronies end up shooting the case and spilling the money all over the highway.
  • Big O has an array of rocket launchers hidden under the chest armor.
  • Big O’s Final Stage, a massive fold-out Wave-Motion Gun hidden in the chest.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: The lighting in the cockpits of certain Megadeuses are Red , Blue and Yellow .
  • Big Fau absolutely shreds Bonaparte, getting hit only once in the entire fight .
  • Let’s not even get started on Beck’s embarrassing Combining Mecha
