Cybersix is an animated Japanese/Canadian co-production between the Canadian company Network of Animation (NOA), who produced it, and the Japanese companies Tokyo Movie Shinshia (TMS Entertainment) and Telcom Animation Film, who animated it overseas in Japan. It was based off of the Argentinian comic book series of the same name, created by artist Carlos Meglia and writer Carlos Trillo. The cartoon series had to be toned down from the comic's more mature themes in order to make it appropriate for it's younger viewers. It was well received in places like Canada and Europe where it continued to be sporadically re-aired for years. However, despite being toned down from the original comics and the series re-edited for US viewers, critics still believed the show was too mature and inappropriate for it's target audience. Cybersix was originally voiced in English and was subsequently dubbed for Spanish, French, Polish, Japanese, Malaysian, and Taiwanese. It originally aired on the channel Teletoon in Canada, Telefe in Argentina and HBO-Olé for the rest of Latin America, Fox Kids in the United States, Kids Station in Japan, Canal+ in France, and Hyper+ in Poland.
Cybersix is a beautiful genetically-engineered creature developed by the evil Doctor Von Reicther, who's ambition is to rule the world with terror. He attempts to destroy Cybersix, who he considers his ultimate failure and greatest enemy, and one after another, Von Reichter generates wicked creatures to chase after her. To escape from his hands, Cybersix disguises herself as a male high school literature teacher by day, named Adrian Seidelman. And by night she leaps the rooftops hidden in the shadows of the city of Meridiana, where she finds herself forced to fight against her own kind. She remains on the run in search of her true identity and freedom from her creator, and her only desire is to live as a human being and to love as a woman. She will continue fight to protect and save the humans she loves from her vicious oppressor.
Cybersix (voiced by Cathy Weseluck) — By day she disguises herself as Adrian Seidelman, a literature teacher at Meridiana High School. By night she leaps on the rooftops of the city fighting the monsters Von Reichter sends to destroy her.
Lucas Amato (voiced by Michael Dobson) — A biology teacher at Meridiana High School. He is good friends with Adrian Seidelman, a fellow teacher, and is initially unaware of his double life as Cybersix. After discovering her true identity, Lucas comes to love Cybersix as much more than a friend as the series progresses. He is always there to help her whenever she comes to see him at his apartment.
Julian (voiced by Andrew Francis) — A young street kid and possibly orphan. He is forced to pick pocket against his will until Cybersix promises to take him somewhere safer. He tries to help Cybersix during her fights, but is often rescued by her instead.
Data 7 — Cyber 29 was part of the Cyber Series created by Dr. Von Reichter and the once thought deceased brother of Cybersix. However, Von Reichter saved his brain for a later use in his Data series. Cyber 29's brain was placed in the body of a black panther and he was renamed Data 7. Data 7's mission was to find and kill Cybersix. While he was on his mission his memories came back to him and remembered that Cybersix was not his enemy but his sister. So, Data 7 rebelled against Von Reichter and joined Cybersix to stop him.
Von Reichter (voiced by Terry Klassen) — A former member of the SS and the Nazi party, he is an expert in genetic engineering. He initially began his work in concentration camps during World War II, implanting cybernetic organs in the bodies of dead prisoners in an attempt to bring them back to life to serve in the Fuhrer's army. He fled to South America after the Nazis fell, where he once again continued his sinister experiments. The doctor dreams of replacing all of humanity with creatures created by him who would all hail him as leader.
José (voiced by Alex Doduk) — The clone and "son" of Von Reichter, created to succeed him in case of death, and is usually the one to carry out Von Reichter's plans, though they almost never work. Despite his child-like appearance (and behavior), José is chronologically an adult, but his father engineered him to have eternal youth to prevent him from growing up to be a potential threat.
Cybersix has a total of 13 episodes, spread over 1 season, that were produced in 1998 and originally aired in September 6 1999 to October 23 1999.
