That magnificent iron figure has come back with brand new look! With the original author Mr.Mitsuteru Yokoyama's last wish on their mind, the giant robots strike each other using all their strength! Forty years ago when Japanese people were into monster movies, there was a Robot cartoon that fascinated many children. The name of the cartoon is "GIANT ROBO" written by Mr. Mitsuteru Yokoyama. As soon as the cartoon started to appear serially in a magazine "Weekly Shonen Sunday (published by Shougakukan)" from May 1967 it gained wide popularity. Half years later it was made into TV live action drama using special effects which also made a big hit. From 1992 to 1998 7 episodes of the original video animation "GIANT ROBO the animation the day the earth stood still" were released.

Now it is 2007- new century has come and many people are waiting for the revival of Giant Robo, the monumental work in the field of robot animation genre which is still remembered by a lot of people as if Giant Robo eternally remembered Daisaku Kusama with the voice recognition. To leave this name in people's mind forever, the new animated version "GIANT ROBO" will launch!

[TV series, 2007, 13 episodes, 25 min, Animation by A.C.G.T.; see also: Giant Robo, GinRei Special]

<two episodes watched> I still hate it, but not as much...i am under the impression that this version will give us more robots for giant robo to fight with, so i reserve judement. Because it is a giant robo anime i am watching it. If it was anything else mecha without the name, i would have punted by now.

<none watched> Ok, I haven't watched this yet eventhough episode 1 is supposedly available through the link below...BUT is it me or this Giant Robo looks Less Buffed than the Robo of 1992...Also they changed the whole story around and to my grief NO BIG FIRE?!?! Sadly to say, i might watch this show, but i already have a bias towards the 90's version...but i will let you decide...
