The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers was a joint venture by American and Japanese studios to create an original space opera cartoon in the vein of adaptations like Voltron and Robotech. After watching a couple of issues, it's apparent they succeeded in a lot of aspects and not so much in a few others. The cartoon's production quality is pretty astounding compared to its peers, with high-quality animation in almost all aspects (including osme of the earliest 3D animation I've ever seen in a cartoon, even if it's relegated to the ships' computer AIs. The characters are a good mix of American and Japanese sensibilities, with a focus on western gun-slinging and horse-riding heroes each with their own super-powers, like cybernetics or telepathic powers. It's got an overarcing story with a number of side characters and recurring villains.

The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers is a much different cartoon than the ones I generally watched. I'm used to the 30-minute toy commercials, with the good guys winning over the same bad guys every episode. Optimus Prime constantly kicking Megatron's ass and the like. Galaxy Rangers does something completely different, with a huge cast of characters and stories that sometimes take multiple episodes to resolve. I'm not even sure how to rate her since I haven't been able to see much of her.
Let's rate her anyway.
