A wonderful retelling of the original Magma Taishi!
10 May 2008 | by webkroozerSee all my reviews

As a child, I remember rushing home from school to see "Space Giants" (Monstruos del Espacio in Spanish), a cool series about a golden giant named Magma, his wife Mol and son Gam, and Goa, the evil villain they fought.

Of course, being based on a 40-year old TV show, it's not surprising to see that this franchise is practically unknown to new generations, even though Magma Taishi was created by the legendary Osamu Tezuka (of Astroboy fame). So you can guess I was pretty excited when I learned of the existence of an animated series produced by Bandai Visual and Pioneer.

The animation is great for an early 90's series and all key elements are here; the supersonic whistle used to summon the heroes, kaijou (monsters), and the evil Goa (aka Rodak). Only if you have read the manga or watched the classic 1966 live action series can you fully appreciate the value of this production which I was lucky enough to find at the Mandarake store during a recent trip to Tokyo.

It's too bad only 13 episodes were produced! It's not Ultraman but this brings back lots of nice childhood memories. If you are like me (I'm 36, btw) then take a trip down nostalgia lane with Magma Taishi. I hope we get more of Ambassador Magma in the future.
