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.

One Promising Aspect...
1 July 2003 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

As a whole, this series would not make a list of top ten animes. It might make a list of top fifty....might. The animation is unique, but looks like Mickey Mouse stuff, the storyline is unoriginal, the battle scenes typical. The only interesting thing about this anime is Jiro's inner struggle. He is a robot, but since he is endowed with the Gemini System (artificial conscience), he is able to tell right from wrong. However, this system is badly damaged early on in the series and Jiro is constantly asking "Is this right? Is this what I'm supposed to do?" etc. etc...Also, Jiro has to deal with being a robot when he is surrounded by humans. Where he is hard and cold, the people around him, like Mitsko, are soft and warm. It's no mistake that the little boy told Jiro the story of Pinocchio, for they are much alike. Jiro has to deal with peoples fear of him, since he's different from them.

Aside from Jiro's inner conflicts, this series is unremarkable.
