Space Runaway Ideon

I heard about this show called "Space Runaway Ideon," and well I was a little skeptical at first. With an epic title like "Space Runaway" how can they possibly live up to the name? Let's face it, Space Runaway implies epicness, like they've done SO MUCH crap that they have to escape. FROM SPACE.

And even though I was skeptical at first, I was instantly proved wrong.


These colonists end up digging up some HUGE robot and they're all "Woah cool" a robot, but then these aliens called the Buff Clan show up and start blowing everything up, and so the colonists flea the planet, and thus it begins.


The series is somewhat slow paced but very intriguing. As the story progresses the Ideon crew goes from planet to planet and the Buff Clan keep chasing them, eventually every planet they go to is like "N Go away you brining us WAR and we don't want your WAR." It really adds a lot of drama and a tinge of desperation and hopelessness.


The series ends kind of out of no where, but they fixed it by having two movies that fill in what was supposed to happen. The second movie was kind of violent.


All in all, I give this series a 10/10, what do you guys think?

I consider it a classic. If you have noticed other mech series have been influenced by Ideon. I agree the ending was not so good with the tv series since it was canceled after it's original run..sort of like Gundam. The movies especially the second one gives us the ending. I will add that this series is extremely dark and gloomy. I guess Tomino was depressed.

Even though I shouldn't participate in a 2nd necromancy, I find it somewhat amusing that Prons' apparent self-promotion failed to generate any discussion.

Ideon's just one of the dozens of fansubs I've downloaded over the years and have yet to watch. I'll move it further up the list if you can guarantee me some bouncing exposed breasts, because I'm otherwise relatively uninterested in SR/M...

Ideon's got lots of exposed breasts (there's a ten minute or so segment where everyone is naked), I don't recall them bouncing much though.

That is the second Ideon movie where you see the characters naked. It's not a pervert anime.

I enjoyed the score for this series more so then I do the actual show itself. Ideon had an epic orchestra behind it for those two film's.

That's too bad.... a double handful of breast meat makes everything better.

I've got the Ideon chogokin on my desk if that says anything about my regard for the series

I've been meaning to see Ideon.

Wasn't it created by the original creator of Gundam?

Yes, yes it was. Right after the original Gundam came out in fact.
