Gloizer X


Gloizer X was an anime series that ran from from 1976 to 1977. There were 36 episodes in all. It is often referred to as "Gloyzer X" and "Groizer X".

The Gaira aliens, hidden in the Arctic, plan to conquer Earth. Captured and forced to work for the aliens, Dr. Yan creates the ultimate weapon, a transformable aerial robot called Gloizer X. Entrusted to his daughter Rita, Gloizer X escapes the clutches of the Gaira and lands in Japan, where pilot Jo Kaisaka meets a wounded Rita. Taking up the controls of Gloizer X, Jo and Rita fight against the Gaira invasion.

The anime was created by Go Nagai as a side project during the time he was busy with the various Mazinger series, Gloizer X nevertheless managed to be converted into a TV series. The robot transforms into a jet, while the show included intense battle sequences and aerial combat, it remained a secondary super robot series.

The original Gloizer X toyline are one of the very few super robot toys produced by Nakajima Manufacturing Company instead of the industry dominant Popy Pleasure.

Gloizer X was 100 meters tall and weighed 1200 tons.
While not being a great success in Japan, "Gloizer/Groizer X" had a considerable impact in Brazil, where it was aired under the name O Pirata do Espaço ("The Space Pirate") in 1984/1986 at the Manchete Network. Only two mecha animes were shown in the country, and "Groizer" was the only full-exhibited (the other one, Voltes V, had only five episodes aired there).
