The bizarre and campy kaiju eiga (giant monster) TV show GIANT ROBO from the 1960s was updated and revised almost 30 years later in the anim? series that shares its name. After a new energy source, the Shizuma Drive, stabilizes the world economy, peace seems within reach. Unfortunately, a new threat appears: Big Fire, a powerful and evil organization bent on world domination. To stop Big Fire, the International Police Organization enlists a team of super-powered agents such as female shooting expert GinRei, the electrified Taisou, and undercover agent Kenji Murasame. Their primary advantage, however, lies in 12-year-old Daisaku, a boy who controls the greatest weapon of all, Giant Robo. GIANT ROBO combines a retro design inspired by classic mecha Anim? and kaiju eiga with a tribute to early science fiction manga like those of Shotaro Ishinomori.
