Casshan is the English title for Shinzo Ningen Casshern (新造人間キャシャーン, Shinzō Ningen Kyashān?), an anime series created by animation studio Tatsunoko Productions in 1973.
The American publisher did an awkward katakana to romaji transcription, and actually made a mistake, by translating "キャシャーン" as "Casshan" instead of "Casshern" which is the correct name used in Japan and in other countries, and even used in the 2004 live action film.

Tetsuya Azuma (Azuma Tetsuya), also known as Casshern, is a cybernetic "neo-human" (shinzo ningen in Japanese) who was turned into a cyborg by his father for the purpose of hunting down and destroying robots that have taken over the world. His late biological father, Dr. Azuma, was the inventor of the robots that were originally intended to serve humankind, but mutinied en masse when their cold logic concluded that the good of the Earth Ecosystem required the destruction of the human race.

Casshern and his robotic dog, Friender, join forces with a beautiful girl named Luna to battle the robots led by their brutal boss known as the Black King.
