Synopsis

Plot Summary: Thirteen years after their sudden disappearance, an alien race known as the Heterodyne resurface without warning. To combat the Heterodyne, three office workers from the 21st Century Security Corporation operate Dai-Guard - a giant robot no longer regarded as an oversized paperweight. Unfortunately, Dai-Guard is somewhat obsolete and in disrepair. It's a tough job, but salarymen can also save the world.

Ah Daiguard. What to really say? This is less of a mecha anime than more of a comment on the plight of the working stiff dealing with the corporate world. Working for a corporation myself, I see first hand the red tape and paperwork and hoop jumping that seems to involving doing absolutely anything.

If the corporation can make a form for it, you get to fill it in triplicate and woe beunto thee if you write with anything but black pen.

The mech action scenes themselves are simultaneously awesome and hilarious. Daiguard is trying so hard to be a super robot, but it just isn't. But read more

There's one scene in Dai Guard that says it all: While waiting for the Hetrodyne (evil monster) to attack Tokyo the crew is getting bored waiting for the call to action.

That one line struck such a cord with me, and sold me on Dai Guard, and Dai Guard immediately became my all time favorite mecha anime the moment it was uttered. XEBEC and director Seiji Mizushima did a wonderful job injecting a lot read more

This is actually my first review here, but I thought Daiguard was a pretty interesting anime to write about, even if it wasn't technically brilliant.

Perhaps an 8 is overstating the value here, as this show nothing spectacular, but does a few things well. Something that I quite appreciate is the treatment of the characters. They start out seeming fairly archetypical, but some realistic portrayal keeps them from becoming two-dimensional. Furthermore, they avoid several cliches, such as the leading female falling for the leading male.

The producers could have made this a very dark show, but despite the circumstances, everything remains somewhat happy-go-lucky. Actually, my initial read more
