Tekkaman Blade (宇宙の騎士テッカマンブレード, Uchū no Kishi Tekkaman Burēdo?, lit. "Space Knight Tekkaman Blade") is an anime series, released in 1992. This series was intended to be a reboot of the original Tekkaman: The Space Knight anime, though these shows ultimately shared little in common besides the "armoured hero" concept and a few common character names. The show was also dubbed and released in North America under the title Teknoman, one of the first shows on UPN Kids. The dubbed version has since been released on DVD in North America under the same name by AnimeWorks, while the original, uncut version of the series was released by the same company soon afterwards.
