    Interesting. I've got the CD Soundtracks for both seasons 1 and 2 and never heard an extended cut of the opening.

    Can't say seeing Blum sing this would do anything for me though.

    It would need some sort of Flash Gordon/Queen reference.

    A hybrid super robot anime mixed with some American noir-style scene setting. Only two seasons but DAMN its is pretty awesome.

    As for the titular super robot...

    He'd kick the ass of any combiner. Easily.

    Big O is awesome. The series has some great battle sequences, and a really good story behind it, though some of the connections you are left to puzzle out on your own. The giant robot is played as a classic big, clunky robot rather than a super agile thing (though it can move fast when it needs to)

    It's one of my favourite shows of all time, I bought both sound score OSTs because I liked the music so much. Only a couple of anime I ever did that for.

    Huh, I had never heard this version either.

    Big O is one of the most under appreciated animes I feel, it's a great show (although the story gets pretty out there, especially in season 2), and probably in my top 10 list.

    I don't know why, but this is kinda reminding me of the Big Guy and Rusty, without Rusty.

    Wow... never thought I'd see that image posted anywhere else. I made that panoramic image waaaay back when http://www.paradigm-city.com/'s forums were brimming with activity. I was a member, then a moderator by the username "R.Smith". I have a few more posted here: http://cloud-s.deviantart.com/gallery/2399467 (had TONS more on the thread before the forum was archived).

    For reference, the full song that was posted is from the Respect Maxi Single [​IMG], the second track, simply titled "Big-O!".

    Full track list:
    01-Respect [runtime ~ 1:07]
    02-Big-O! [runtime ~ 3:11]
    03-and Forever [runtime ~ 3:46]
    04-Big-O! (Karaoke Ver.) [runtime ~ 3:11]
    05-and Forever... (Instrumental Ver.) [runtime ~ 3:46]
    06-Big-O! (showtime ver.) [runtime ~ 1:15]
    07-and Forever... (TV Edit) [runtime ~ 1:30]
    08-Big-O! (TV Edit) [runtime ~ 1:07]
