Dinosaurs never became extinct! They still exist in a highly advanced subterranean empire, and Emperor Gore is about to dispatch his highly sophisticated "Mechasauruses" to exterminate the human race and regain control of the Earth's surface. The only technology that could possibly stop them is Professor Saotome's research into "Getter Rays", and his construction of transforming robots which employ them. After the robot which he had hoped to use for space exploration is smashed by the invaders, killing his son, all seems lost--until his younger son reveals the existence of another Getter Robo, this one heavily armed. But with the original crewmen dead, who will fly it?

[TV series, 1974-75, 51 episodes, 25 min, see also the sequels "Getter Robo G" (1975-76) and "Getter Robo Go" (1991-92). Geneon is releasing a series named "New Getter Robo" since 2005.]

This show is so Seventies-ish! Animation is crude, episode plots (so far) seem almost ridiculous. The main thing keeping me interested is the hypnotically cool character of Hayato. The theme song is most cool indeed ("Youth burns with a crimson fire"...)
