G-FORCE, TRANSMUTE!
superstylin' anime action
If you were a fan of G-Force (or "Battle of the Planets") back in the day, the image above should set your blood racing. Ruben D. Canlas Jr., aka The Couch Kamote of the Manila Times, was one such fan, and he takes a stroll down memory lane.

I barely remember this show; if I were to see an episode today, it might further jog my memory. The helmets sorta look familiar. I doubt it was a favorite of mine. Generally, I tended to go more for pure humor cartoons as a little kid, especially the old Warner Brothers shorts. About the only pure anime I liked was Robotech, in my mid-teens.
