Storyline

The genius robotics professor, Dr. Komyoji has created Jiro (who has the ability to transform into Kikaider) âÂEURÂ" a humanoid robot tasked with the protection of Dr. KomyojiâÂEURÂ(TM)s son, Masaru, and daughter, Mitsuko. Gifted with a conscience circuit, which has the power to simulate real emotions that helps to distinguish between âÂEURÂoeright and wrongâÂEUR, Jiro must protect Mitsuko and Masaru from the evil Dr. Gil who wants Jiro to join his army and aid in his goal of world domination. The series is initially a darker version of the original live action tokusatsu show Jinzou Ningen Kikaida, creating or expanding many emotional conflicts within Kikaida and other characters which was not present in the original Kikaida story.

promising
9 June 2003 | by (Hell) – See all my reviews

I just saw the first episode, and I can't really say anything else other than that the series looks promising. The animation is...unique, but who wants to see the same style over and over anyway. It really is enjoyable in its own right. Plus I'm big on story, and the retelling of Pinocchio sounds great. If you have insomnia such as myself, it's definitely worth checking out.
