Petition Background (Preamble):
Entitled Teknoman, the series began it's run on the UPN and FOX networks across North America. Taking place in the year 2087, Teknoman recounts the story of Slade - Earth's only hope of salvation - and his continuous struggle for the existence of mankind... simultaneously fighting an inner struggle to preserve his own humanity without succumbing to the dark side of his power.
Like the majority of anime dubs, Teknoman has undergone several changes from the original series Space Knight Tekkaman Blade (thankfully, nothing which greatly hinders the enjoyment of the show). Scenes had been cut, character names were changed (even genders in some cases), more narration had been added, and new opening and closing themes were composed. Sadly, Teknoman did not last very long as both UPN and FOX cancelled the run of the series -- just as the story was becoming VERY interesting if I may add.
The OVA sequel, Tekkaman Blade II, was released in 1994 (Japan). Taking place 10 years after the invasion, we're introduced to a new Space Knights team, some of whom had been captured by the Radam and converted, into Tekkamen. The series is VERY short - having only 6 parts - and was commercially picked up by Urban Vision.
This petition is designed to resurrect Tekkaman from the ashes that it has dissipated into, by requesting and showing the overwhelming support for the series return throughout the world.
Special thanks to Blue Earth (http://www.geocities.com/bluearths/) for the four paragraphs of information.
