It's not surprising when you see a lot of remakes popping up... but to see a cartoon where I watched the final episode like 25 years ago come out with a honest to God *SEQUEL* which picks up exactly where the story left off from 25 years ago? That's pretty friggin awesome.
I wonder how it will be done to let new viewers get into the story since it certainly does seem to pick up where the first series left off. Esteban is talking about how the man at the mountain in the mask was his Father while he's talking to Mendoza. Esteban spent the entire series trying to find his Father only to finally meet him in the last episode and then his Father seemingly sacrificed himself to stop a nuclear meltdown of an ancient fusion reactor.
