Ah, the days of my youth. A saccharine time in my life filled with Saturday morning cartoons, days in the park, playstation games, and toonami programming.
One of the things I remember really loving when I was young was the anime Medabots. Honestly for a long time I didn't even consider this show an anime because I think it came on the Saturday morning cartoon block for me, with american cartoons as well. Cubix I think was one of the shows it went back-to-back with.
As it turns out, it totally is, and therefore it deserves a shoutout in Throwback Thursday!
You had Metabee, the little bot with a lot to prove...
And Ikki, the kid who finds him and trains with him.
I don't really remember much of the anime, but I remember it being a lot of fun as a kid and action packed enough to keep my attention.
The fights were cool and colorful, and the stakes were appropriately high. LOOK AT HIM DODGE THAT FIRE.
