Hello Cyborg 009 tag on tumblr! I’m sure there’s a sufficient amount of fans that follows it that can answer my question. I have since a long time been wanting to get into Cyborg 009, but I really don’t know where to start.

Normally I’d read the comics, but um… I normally read online and there’s no complete translation apparently, and on MangaFox for example the latest update was last year.

Then there are many anime adaptions. I don’t know how many of them have been translated (I prefer subbed over dubbed btw) nor do I know what they cover.

So my question is: If I want to get into Cyborg 009, where should I start?

The 2001 series is the best place to start. It’s a recent update but still follows the original manga pretty closely. The masterlist maintained by heinrippy has all available episodes (dubbed and subbed, though the subtitles are either dubtitles or crappy bootlegs) of the 2001 series as well as all the other anime, films, and manga. It’s a great list :D

Hello! I agree that the 2001 series is the place to start, as it’s the most complete to be found in English on the internet. Sadly Chiauve is right and the subs are pretty poor but the dub isn’t bad at all aside from taking a few creative liberties and Joe’s voice actor being something besides Joshua Seth in episodes 5 and… another. I can’t remember which at the moment. If you do decide to brave the subs, please watch the alternative subs listed on the masterpost where ever possible as they’re generally much better than the bootleg Malaysian subs.

The first ten volumes of the manga, available through Comixology officially in their Tokyopop translation, is a good basis too if you wanna go back to the source. Ishinomori himself - much like Tezuka before him - revised his own work in multiple editions so later publications (like the Tokyopop collected volumes which are brought together from other collections) tend to be more coherent than starting from what was first published, where stories were abandoned or rewritten mid-publication.

The 70’s series is available subtitled in English through about the middle of the series and is a pretty fun adaptation if you like the campy old stuff. Chou Ginga Densetsu/Legend of the Super Galaxy/Defenders of the Vortex should be watched after the 70’s series but you can probably watch it after getting familiar with either the manga or the 2001 anime. Keep in mind it was dubbed for an audience that had no foreknowledge and in the late 80’s so the performances are awful, but unfortunately no English subtitles exist. You can get the idea of the story from the dub anyway.

I wouldn’t actually suggest the 60’s movies and tv series until you’re more familiar with the later adaptions or the original source though since a lot of the charm is lost unless you already care about the characters. That is just personal opinion though, so feel free to start there if you like old 60’s anime (the original Astro Boy cartoon, for instance.)

Sorry for the tl;dr I’m just excited to have new fans!

You just want to let me know what you think is best and I actually appreciate a heavier answer as you’ve told me more then just what to start with. Seeing as all the answers so far have said the 2001 series I’ll check it out first then. I’m okay with dubs (subs is just a preference), so it will be not much problems if it’s the best choice. We’ll see what will happen after that.
