Review: Zetman

Plot Summary: There are two forces in the world: the Zet, who are entrusted with the survival of humanity, and the Alphas, who have chosen an extreme form of justice. In a certain city, Jin lives under a bridge with an old man, struggling to pay off debts. He carries the destiny of humanity’s survival. Kouga lives on a hill and stands to inherit vast wealth. In his admiration for heroes, he seeks out the meaning of justice. They don’t know it now, but they are destined to one day meet.

The moment I saw the trailer to this Anime I thought of Guyver, at last they made something similar with the same dark tone. Zetman was heading in that direction and Zet was a cool character, with him slowly developing his powers fighting monsters. It picks up pace but then it just doesn’t grab you 100% and the other characters get a bit annoying, Kouga develops as well half way through as another main character and honestly I don’t care for him. The story diverts a little too much, even forcing a ridiculous romance, Zet is a badass and they should have capitalized on it. Its a fun anime but don’t get your expectations too high.

Knight XV

Now this is an interesting machine, you would think with the economy and gas prices as it is that they would make a higher end hybrid, but not for Conquest Vehicles. They have made a monster of an SUV, dutefully named KNIGHT XV, and their catch phrase is “Are you ready to be Knighted?”

At $295’000 only 100 of these are made a year, with a V10 heart pumping 400 bhp and 500 torque. And all I want to do is drive this monster into a wall and see what KITT has to say.

Features:

  • Wilton Wool carpeting
  • Andrew Muirhead leather
  • 6-way seating
  • Tandem sunroof glass with privacy shades S
  • ide-mounted laptop stations
  • LED cabin lighting
  • Alpine DVD navigation and Bluetooth setup, TVs
  • Night vision and rear op camera system
  • PlayStation 3

Forcefield Limb Tube Armor

Having the right protection when riding is essential for your long term health. A life threatening injury can be reduced to a bruise or a recoverable broken bone just by having the right type of protection. Those who ride without any protection are putting themselves at risk thinking that nothing will really happen. Minimizing that risk even if its a small amount is the main reason to be wearing this kind of armor.

Going into the product itself, Forcefield are known to be one the best manufacturers of rider protection in the market. I picked up their Limb Tube Armor for my knees since the Alpinestars I had felt very uncomfortable around my knees and would get itchy after a while.

The design of the armor itself is very smart, you slip it on like a sock so it is around your knee the whole time. It does move around slightly when you are walking but you can strap it even tighter to make sure that doesn’t happen, but I prefer to use it without the strap since the back of my knee might get itchy. Right now it I wear it everytime and I have gotten used to its comfort around my knees.

The protection is made from an impact resistant honeycomb design which spreads the impact so that your knee takes the least amount of damage. The protection is from above your knee, half way down your shin and it fits snugly on to you. The is one of the highest quality armor I have seen used and it is well worth it.

Price: £45
