Anime Info Page
A girl named Emi comes into possession of a mysterious weapon in the form of her favorite pencil that can grant any wish. Four heroes from different worlds gather around Emi to protect the artifact and prevent the destruction of more dimensions in the hands of a group of villains.
Infini-T Force caters to a very specific audience. The cross-over story celebrates the 55th anniversary of Tatsunoko Productions by bringing together four of its superhero icons to help a young depressed girl with a death wish and a giant pencil to save the world. All four shows are from the 70s and are relatively unknown to the younger audience.
We first see Ken the Eagle from Ninja Science Team Gatchaman, a show that most know as G-Force and Battle of the Planets. Casshan, whom we see in the last segment of Episode 1, is a robot hunter who has appears in the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom fighting games. Tekkaman is probably more famous as Teknoman, brought to the west by Saban, the company behind the Power Rangers. The detective who turns into the machine-shifting Polyman is from Hurricane Polyman, whose remake saw an English dub in the mid 90s.
Now, if you don’t know any of these characters, is there any merit to watching the series? Well, I’m not a Tatsunoko scholar and I have to say that I enjoyed the episode more than I expected. The CGI was excellent and the battles promise that there is more to come in the course of the series.
