Johnny Sokko is an ordinary kid, whose life took an extraordinary turn on a voyage when he meets a young man who befriends him. The boat is suddenly sunk by the minions of the terrorist organization known as the Gargoyle Gang who have a penchant for giant robots for their attacks. Finding themselves on an island base, the pair meet up with a scientist who has constructed the most advanced and powerful robot of all. Upset that his creation will be used for evil, the scientist shows the pair the robot and the wristwatch voice controller, set to imprint the next speaker as the sole person who can command the robot. Impulsively, Johnny speaks into it and becomes that controller. With the robot's power, they escape and Johnny learns that his new friend is an agent of the worldwide intelligence and anti-terrorist organization, Unicorn, which is dedicated to opposing the Gargoyle Gang. With no alternative, Unicorn recruits Johnny as a full regular agent. Now, Johnny has a vital role in this ... Written by Anonymous

A wonderful Giant Robo show that deserves to be seen.
29 February 2004 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

If you like Godzilla, Giant Robo, Ultraman or any other big monsters that fight and save the world then this is the best best. Sure it's old and campy...but it's a lot of fun. I have old tapes that I pull out every once in a while. Still enjoy the show. Sure they didn't have the greatest special effects but who did back then? Everyone complaining about how the monsters or explosions look shouldn't compare the show to present day shows but others from the same period. This is good.
