Scouring the universe in pursuit of knowledge, mankind has discovered three large trucks and a giant spaceship belonging to an extinct alien civilization on the planet Solo. During their excavation, a humanoid alien race known as the Buff Clan arrives at Solo, and Karala Ajiba—daughter of the Buff Clan's military leader—flies down to the planet against orders. In hunting for Karala, the Buff Clan attacks and destroys the Earth settlement to bring her back.

Desperate to stave off their assaulters, earthlings Cosmo Yuuki, Kasha Imhof, and Bes Jordan board the trucks, which form into the powerful giant robot Ideon when combined. As they fight back against their enemies, the remaining survivors board the spacecraft Solo Ship and flee, while the Buff Clan relentlessly seeks Ideon and the mysterious power source contained within it.

The Ideon: A Contact is the first part of a compilation of the series Space Runaway Ideon created by the infamous Yoshiyuki (Kill'em all) Tomino.

Story 7/10 it is what you expect of a compilation movie that tries to resume 38 episodes in an hour and a half it just seem a liitle too rushed, still the story is interesting enough to continue to watch 'till you get to the better paced and developed "Be Invoked"

Art 10/10 amazing fot the time

Sond 9/10 some backgrond song are a bit off but still makes a good atmosphere

Characters 5/10 undeveloped and hard to relate to

The Ideon: A Contact, is the first of two Ideon movies that were released on the same day back in 1982. Densetsu Kyojin Ideon, AKA Space Runaway Ideon was a 1980 television series that got cancelled after 39 episodes. A couple of years later director Yoshiyuki Tomino and crew were able to provide a conclusion to the show in the movie The Ideon: Be Invoked. In order to help people recollect the events of the TV series, this movie was also created.

The movie’s plot is basically the exact same as Ideon the television series; enough so that I’ll simply use the same description from my ...

Mixed Feelings
The first time I watched Ideon, I approached it in the way that is generally recommended, namely by watching all of the TV series except the final episode, and then Be Invoked. I was curious about A Contact though, since I wondered how you summarise 38 TV episodes in a 90-minute compilation movie. The answer is that you do so with great difficulty.

The Ideon TV series goes through three basic phases. The first several episodes do a good job of setting up the premise and establishing the conflicts. Most of the subsequent episodes up through the teens are repetitive filler. Then, after a recap episode ...
