A thousand years after the destruction of Earth by gigantic aliens called Gauna, mankind is living on massive spaceships. One of these space ships is Sidonia, which is protected by large armed robots called Gardians.
Sent to jail after being accused of murdering Getter Robo creator Dr. Saotome, Ryoma Nagare must once again team up with his former comrades and pilot Getter Robo when Saotome returns from the dead and threatens humanity by unleashing his greatest creation - the Shin Dragon. Their efforts, however, are in vain as they fail to stop a nuclear warhead from hitting Shin Dragon, resulting in a massive Getter Ray contamination that wipes out 99% of the planet's population. Thirteen years after this great catastrophe, mankind continues to fight for survival against the Invaders. Out of the remains of the nuclear blast comes Shin Getter, piloted by the artificial human Go. With remnants of the Japanese military by his side, Go - along with co-pilots Kei and Gai - must use Shin Getter to exterminate the Invaders once and for all. Written by
In episode 8 ('Blood and Ice'), one of the members of the Arctic team is credited as "McCreedy" a reference to 'John Carpenter''s The Thing (1982). The Invaders attack in a similar manner to the creature, through assimilation. See more »
A great man once said "i have a dream"..... that dream was Getter Robo.
The sequel to end all sequels, Shin Getter Robo is a sort of reunited version of all the Getter Robos (plus more) and then remixed using the talents of somebody other than Go Nagai. The animation, is more modern, yet much more unique and clean than "New Getter Robo" which came out more recently.
If you watched the original Getter Robo as a kid, watch this.
But if you are somebody who didn't (99 percent of you) this is still a good watch. The final 4 episodes of Shin Getter Robo will leave you wasted.
PS- Open Get :)
