Synopsis

A young man named Akitsu Masato is `captured` by a secret govt. project known as "Last Guardian". He is told that his life as a normal student was all a lie, and that his real destiny is to be the pilot of a great robot called "Zeorymer of the Heavens". The truth of this is hammered in when Masato sees his `parents` accept payment for raising him. The Last Guardian is preparing for the resurrection of "Hau Dragon", an organization bent on world conquest. 15 years ago, Hau Dragon built 8 great robots. Each of the mecha represents a force of nature. However, before any of the robots could be used, their creater Kihara Masaki destroyed the robots except for the leader: Zeorymer. He took Zeorymer and an embryo to the government. The embryo became the boy Masato. Now, Hau Dragon has rebuilt the other 7 mecha and wants the 8th. It will be up to Masato and Himuro to pilot Zeorymer and fight against the Hau Dragon, but neither Masato or Himuro are all that they seem.

I don't understand the chronic neglect for Hades Project Zeorymer. Top tier animation and mecha designs plus a plot that's a cut above the usual dull mecha anime fare. This OVA series is sadly deprived of a rightful place amongst the pantheon of interesting sci-fi OVA series from the 80s. What sets Zeorymer apart isn't just the visual perfection but also a real attempt at including some interesting story elements, themes and ideas that have obviously made their way into more well known fare (Evangelion in particular). This is a must see for fans of sci-fi anime from the 80s.

Unfortunately I bought this from Manga Entertainment’s supposed “classic DVD collection” well this series is just straight up wack….with a few laughable exceptions.

Animation

Poorish 80’s animation that seems to add to the series kornyness. Character designs are very similar nothing that really stands out. During the battle scenes you can see some transformer/evangelion-ish attacks which are just LAME but can also be amusing.

Sound

The only mentionable part of this was the strange dialogue, which in turn comes from a strange and dumb storyline nevertheless the voice actors did a good job playing these characters (english dub I mean).

Story

Hmm lets see boy has to pilot read more

This was... pretty bad.

I mean, it wasn't unwatchable. The art and animation were adequate, and the soundtrack was tolerable if dated. The plot comes close enough to making sense for an action/mecha series.

But the characterizations were weird. The "bad guys" were frequently more sympathetic than our protagonists, and not in any way that really encouraged deeper consideration. The core plot also just wasn't really developed. The ultimate mastermind behind the whole thing seems to have launched the most complex world takeover plot ever... for no particular reason. And they never really clear up what the goal was.

Also, the titular Zeorymer is a boringly invincible read more

Both are super robot anime with a dark tone about a boy forced to become the pilot of a giant robot, as well as a conflict between a clandestine government agency and a secret society.

Anime: Soukou Kihei Votoms
In both animes the female costars are scientific products very important. In Votoms Fyana is the deadly killing machine (first Melkian Perfect Soldier) while inMei Ou Project Zeorymer Miku is a cyborg necessary for final weapons Zeorymer.
Both women have a love affair with actors.

Anime: Haja Taisei Dangaiou
Both are creations of Toshiki Hirano. The character designs are the same, so also the wicks. I especially love.
Dangaioh also have a similar story as in Zeorymer. Masato is part of an experiment as are Mia Alice, Roll Kran, Lamba Nom and Pai Thunder. The experiments do differ, because in Dangaioh has a characteristic more of fantasy by the subject of the superpowers.
Furthermore both Dangaoih, like Zeorymar are top experiment robots .

Anime: RahXephon
These two shows are both on the darker side of the super robot genre, focussing on the flaws of the hero and the thoroughly broken characters surrounding him. Ayato is distinctly more likeable than the protagonist of Zeorymer, but no less disturbed.

Anime: Akira
Different theme and elements, but give a similar feeling because Tetsuo Shima and Masato Akitsu are mostly controlled by the greed for more power and parts of the plot are also similar.
