SynopsisSaiga is a normal high school student with a gift in mathematics. His daily routine is disrupted when his family gets news that his Father's remains have been discovered—a noted archeologist and researcher who had gone missing while exploring a site many years before. Among his remains were notes and artifacts that needed to be identified by the family near a notable triangular mountain in Japan known as "Japan's pyramid", a place suspected by some to be man-made. A meteor containing a strange robotic lifeform falls from the sky and begins to cause destruction, putting Saiga in danger and causing a mysterious bracelet from his father's research to activate and merge him with an ancient robot burried within the pyramid—a robot the runes describe as Reideen. It is now up to Saiga and guardian Reideen to fight against this unknown alien threat from the sky.

Recipe for this one is simple: take 1 high school kid,add 1 mysterious girl and 1 huge robot. Now sprinkle it with some aliens and mix it well. When done just wrap it in some nice graphics and you're done!
This is not one of brightest moments of mecha genre but i saw worse too.
If you are a mecha fan running out of mecha to watch,than this might do.
If not,stop reading this and move on to something better!
Art: Only realy good thing about this series. Graphics are flawles,a mix of computer 3D stuff and normal 2D drawing. But the scenes of summoning Reideen and his weapons repeat all the time and get boring.
Sound: OP is some boring balade,so is the finishing song. Music during the episodes is theatrical and not that bad.
Story: Nothing new and shocking. WARNING:You might get some flashbacks from Power Rangers while watching.
The whole thing starts when they find the bones of Junki Saiga's (main caracter) father in some pyramide shaped mountain. He visits the place and when inside the mountain he looks down some hole and experiences a vision of two giant robots fighting.
When he regains consciousness a huge robot falls into the scene and the bracelet from his fathers excavations transfers him on board of huge golden mecha from his dreams,called Reideen.
From now on he must fight huge alien robots while being obstructed by normal military and their inferior mechas...
This about sums it up as i see it. I hope it will be of some help to you :)
