After a slumber of 12 millennia, the Demon Empire returns to seize control of the Earth. Reideen, the giant robot-like protector of the lost continent of Mu, senses the evil presence and awakens within its golden pyramid, revealing to young Japanese boy Akira Hibiki that he is the one descendant of the ancient Mu people who must help Reideen save Earth.

He was assisted by his friends, token girl Mari Sakurano (daughter of a scientist fighting the Demon Empire) and several members of his high school soccer team.

Raideen is a "weird" series, well, all old-school mecha animes are "weird" in our current standards. The first season is Tomino's work, so you can see his ero-humor in characters like Mari (panty shots) and Rei Asuka (Jaegar's episode).

Sharkin was a greatful rival for Akira, and the Berserker Brothers were a refresh from Berostan's ritual beast formula. I blame that Rei Asuka character is just missing from the second season for no reason at all.

The series had a bittersweet ending, I still can't believe that the ending was so depressive. So, watch Raideen if you are mecha-fan or just want to enjoy a good story.

Raideen is a awesome show for mecha and any oldschool anime fan.
Cool and nostalgic, the series makes it best with a funny and great OST, facial mecha expressions and more. Half directed by Tomino (Episode 1-26) and Tadao Nagahama (Episode 27-50), you can find giant robots fighting in every episode, in the unique 70's art style. If you are a /m/ hardcore mecha fan, this is a must-watch.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (12/50 eps)
Another show directed by Tomino (MSG) but only the first 26 episodes, while Tadao Nagahama episodes 27-50. Nagahama also went on to direct two other super robot "hits" in the 70's. After the first disaster of a show in 1975, I had to give the year another chance.
OK so obviously one can't watch anime in the 1970's without finally watching a Super-Robot show...right? Right! Go go let's go fighto fighto. Yeah!
This is your a-typical super robot show where a giant robot must protect the land from invasion and total destruction. In Yuusha Raideen, a boy named Akira is a descendent of some race "senses" ...
