"Henshin a go-go, baby!"
13 December 2005 | by kinnikuman12195See all my reviews

First the game now a cartoon...That is so cool! While I am still new in the world of anime, I have to say Viewtiful Joe is a great series despite what others said.The hero costumes worn by Joe and Captain Blue (among others) are clearly based on the costumes worn by the various hero teams from the Super Sentai and Power Ranger series.The opening theme song is in Japanese,The name of the song "Brighter side" Performed by SaGa a Japanese girl-group.My whole family found it fun and entertaining and I hope this show get a second season.I don't get why people are saying this show sucks.

I Give the show "Viewtiful Joe:.......9 out of 10 This is a Hit!
