Sent to jail after being accused of murdering Getter Robo creator Dr. Saotome, Ryoma Nagare must once again team up with his former comrades and pilot Getter Robo when Saotome returns from the dead and threatens humanity by unleashing his greatest creation - the Shin Dragon. Their efforts, however, are in vain as they fail to stop a nuclear warhead from hitting Shin Dragon, resulting in a massive Getter Ray contamination that wipes out 99% of the planet's population. Thirteen years after this great catastrophe, mankind continues to fight for survival against the Invaders. Out of the remains of the nuclear blast comes Shin Getter, piloted by the artificial human Go. With remnants of the Japanese military by his side, Go - along with co-pilots Kei and Gai - must use Shin Getter to exterminate the Invaders once and for all.

I'll concede I was going into this series a bit blind as this is the first of one of Go Nagai's famous mech titles I've seen with the Getter Robo franchise. It looks like this series functions as some sort of sequel as characters from earlier installments of the franchise like Hayato Jin and Ryoma Nagare make an appearance in this series, as all of humanity is dealing with a parasitic alien race called the Invaders and the titular giant mechs of the series are the main means to combat said enemy threat. While retaining a number of elements typical of classic super robot anime like combining mechs and hot-blooded characters, there is a solid plot offered up with the story direction that Getter Robo: Armageddon takes with introducing new characters that contribute to the fight against the Invaders and learning more about the alien menace. The series does have its rough spots with the story struggling at points in the middle of its run to determine some clear direction and the visuals usually degrading in quality at points in the series. But otherwise if super robot anime grab your interest, then Getter Robo: Armageddon is a series I would give a solid recommendation to check out.
