Getter Robo G


Getter Robo G was a super robot anime series created by Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa and produced by Toei Animation. This sequel to Getter Robo was broadcast on Fuji TV from May 15, 1975 to March 25, 1976, with a total of 39 episodes (some episodes were rebroadcast, giving the impression that there were 43 episodes).

People familiar with Mattel's popular Shogun Warriors toy collection will remember all three of Getter Robo G's robot formations in that toy line: Getter Dragon (Dragun), Getter Liger (Raider) and Getter Poseidon (Poseidon). As a result of the popularity of these toys in the US, Jim Terry included this series in his Force Five anime lineup under the title of Starvengers. The original Getter Robo series, however, has yet to appear in the US (although the Shin Getter Robo OVAs have appeared).

After the final defeat of the Dinosaur Empire and the death of Musashi Tomoe in the original Getter Robo anime series. Dr. Saotome, creator of Getter Robo fears that the peace the Getter Robo team has won will be short lived and that an even greater enemies would appear. Dr. Saotome's fears are justified when the militaristic Hyakki Empire appears, but Dr. Saotome is prepared with the creation of an even more powerful Getter Robo, Getter Robo G and a new Getter Robo base. Also with Musashi Tomoe dead, Dr. Saotome needs a third pilot which he finds in baseball player Benkei Kuruma.

Although the new Getter Robo G team basically had the original Getter Robo land, sea, air specialties each could now fly and had added specialties.
