Emperor Muge Zarbados and his Empire of Death decide that their next conquest will be the faraway planet of Earth. Muge becomes even more fearsome because of Shapiro Keats, a power-hungry Earthling-turned-traitor. It's up to Shinobu, Sara (Shapiro's old girldfriend), Masato, and Ryo of the Jyusenkitai/Cyber Beast Force to pilot the four Jyusenki/Beast Mecha (Eagle Fighter, Land Cougar, Land Liger, and Big Moth [a mammoth mecha]), which can combine into the giant mech Dancougar.

The mid 80s were a volatile time for the mecha genre, but at the time some didn't realize it. Mobile Suit Gundam ended prematurely in 1980, but it would nonetheless prove to be the kiss of death to the super robot sub-genre, as the ratio of real robot anime to super robot anime would become increasingly unbalanced all the way to the present day.

Super Beast Machine God Dancougar came out in 1985, the middle of the transitional period, and unlike many other super robot shows that continued old trends, Dancougar is a strange one that is completely of and away from its time. SBMGD (which read more

There's few anime I love more than a good 80's mecha/sci-fi series, and Choujuu Kishin Dancougar is probably runner up for my favorite mech series next to Macross (Macross has the better.....everything). It's hard to find anything about it that separates it from any other given mech show with giant robots, but that means it retains the same charm that keeps you watching anime of the same mold.
[STORY 6] Very clear cut and dry for the most part. Dancougar's plot won't blow anyone away if you're looking for a surprise. The story seems to have taken creative liberties from Genesis Climber Mospeada and read more

First, this is a super robot show. So don't expect realism. I will say that it starts off slow and the first 17 episodes were not great, but after that the action and stakes heighten. It was a fun ride, it's just too bad that it didn't start from the beginning. The aliens are on the generic side as far as their motives. But it's fun to see them squabble among themselves. There are OVA's that continue the storyline. The series ends in a cliffhanger. I had a blast. The action was great. Animation looked great most of the time. Music was good. The backstabbing, read more

The 80' were somewhat of a weird time for mecha anime. Due to the success of Mobile Suit Gundam, the amount of Real Robot shows increased, yet there were still more than a few Super Robot shows. In a way, Dancouga could actually be considered a Reconstruction of the Super Robot Genre, way before Gaogaigar did so. Though this show did so in a different manner, combining elements of both Super Robot and Real Robot shows. How did this turn out? Let's find out:


The story is paced rather well. The first few episodes do a good job introducing the cast, with the whole team read more
