Synopsis

In the near future, robot technology has advanced to the point of self-awareness. Under the leadership of the "Black King," machines have decimated the human population and conquered the world. Those who survived the early holocaust have been enslaved for life. But throughout the hardships, a lone hero appears as the savior of mankind. He is Casshan - a fusion of man and machine driven to combat Black King and his forces to the end.

I know many of you probably decided to watch this OVA after seeing the popular "Casshern Sins" anime, so here I'll be discussing on why you should or should not watch "Casshan: Robot Hunter." Yes, it is the same Casshern from "Neo-Human Casshern" an anime series from about 1973. The OVA was intended to be 4 epds, however, it was edited into one action pack film via its American release. Recognizable faces are still of some familiarity in this OVA, however, you'll begin to noticing different aspects towards character development. Also, I believe that this OVA closely resembles "Neo Human Casshern" and not "Casshern Sins." read more

This OVA seems to be a remake first Casshan also known as Cashern series.
In this world Dr. Azuma built a super android called BK-1 and instructed the android to protect earth and nature, the robot to fulfill his duties began to kill and tyrannize all the human race, because afterall the human race was killing earth. BK-1 then renames himself as Black King Boss. Tetsuya, Dr. azuma's son, after watching this massacre is left with no other choice than that of merging himself with his father latest android becoming the legendary immortal Casshan.

I've entered this Casshan world by the Cashern Sins series, so please bear read more

Recommendations

Both are remakes of the '70s robot genre series. Both are "white knights" but not similar in storyline or character relations. Both are enjoyable old-school anime—the way it's not done anymore, sadly.
Both 90s remake OVAs of classic 70s Tatsunoko superhero anime.

Opening Theme

"Casshan - The Headstone of Wind" by Hironobu Kageyama (eps 2-4)

Ending Theme

"The Meridian of Hope - Horizon Blue" by Columbia Animation Stars
