Otaku Evolution Episode 114 - Giant Robo (OVA)


Ah, Giant Robo. Best anime I've reviewed so far this year. This classic 7-episode OVA, directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa, combines classic Chinese wuxia, Western retro-future, and good ol' mecha action to give us a celebration of Mitsuteru Yokoyama's work. It's a real stunner, folks. It has exciting action, gripping drama, splendid art/animation, fantastic music and sound design, and is even greater than the sum of its parts. Imagawa is criminally underrated and we're all lucky to have him in the industry. So join me in this look at one of my favorite anime of all time, Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still!
