In the year 2039, mankind has found a pure, clean, and infinetly recyclable power source known as the Shizuma Drive. It has served its purpose well, until now. Big Fire, a power-mad underworld organization, has found a way of making all Shizuma Drives inoperable. Luckily, a branch of InterPol, known as the Experts of Justice, have discovered this scheme. Now only Daisaku Kusama, a young Expert member, must control Giant Robo to battle the evils of Big Fire. Written by

The character Tetsugyu (whose name roughly translates to "iron ox") was taken from the Chinese epic saga "The Water Margin." In the tale, a warrior named Li Kui (also known as the Iron Ox) was a loyal and fierce warrior who would plow through his foes with the use of brute strength and twin axes. See more »
Giant Robo has to be one of the best Anime series out there.
Giant Robo actually takes you to another time and place, where everything is different and every single person has there own idea of whats going on. It's an awesome commntary about the world that works even better now (2001) because of out energy crisis and our lack of leadership.
I've watched Giant Robo a million times and while I know who's suppose to be the good guys and bad guys, there's just so much involved that you loose sight of who's right and who's wrong, everybody's ideas make since, they all seem to be trying to save the world. Sure there are a few loose cannons that have no control, but our leads, who's right?
If you want to be a real nerd (which isn't a bad thing), watch this with friends and see the conversations it sparks.
