Cybersix (Japanese: サイバーシックス ) is an anime science fiction television series, based on the comic strip of the same name by Carlos Meglia. The series was produced by the Vancouver-based Network of Animation (NOA) and animated in Japan by TMS Entertainment. Many of the comic's darker themes had to be toned down for this show in order to make it appropriate for younger viewers.[1] The original music score for the show was composed by Robbi Finkel.[2] Its opening and ending songs were composed by Robbi Finkel with lyrics by Robert Olivier and sung by jazz vocalist Coral Egan.[3] The series originally aired on Teletoon in Canada, Fox Kids in the United States, Kids Station in Japan and Telefe in Argentina.

On May 6, 2000 Cybersix won "Best Animated Production" and "Best Overall Sound of an Animated Production" at the Leo Awards.[4] On April 28, 2001, the series won "Special Mention for the Best Science Fiction Program" at the Pulcinella Awards in Italy for that year's competition.[5]


Additional voices were provided by Brian Drummond and Chantal Strand.


Cybersix aired a total of 13 episodes. Each individual episode had a production budget of $360,000 USD.[1] Two seasons of 13 episodes were originally intended to be made, but those plans were cancelled after the first season due to conflicts between production studios.[6]

The series was released in English on DVD for the first time in North America by Discotek Media on 26 August 2014.[7] The box set features commentary by Cathy Weseluck and Brady Hartel on episodes 1 and 13, liner notes on episode 4 and 11, textless opening and ending animations, as well as the show's original short pilot.[8]
