Thunderbirds meets Voltron with a Japanese kids show twist
Machine Robo Rescue is a pretty good, beautiful and family oriented anime that reminds me very much of "The ThunderBirs". Machine Robo is the name for a special rescue squad that goes around the earth rescuing people and preventing disasters ,which was the plot of the Thunderbirds, however this is much better visually speaking with the use of cgi and 3d modeling. The team consist of 12 yr old kids who pilot the machines, but the machines themselves can function and talk by themselves. They can also combine and form together a giant machine Robo just like Voltron.
Great anime, with no blood, but good action, chemistry and laughs. I especially like the talking dog who in the cartoon who starts talking from ep 3 "The soul of police is a straght line"
