A movie recap of the Space Runaway Ideon TV Series. Humanity's pursuit of knowledge leads them to the planet Solo, where they find mysterious remains of a long dead alien civilization, including the 3 part super robot 'Ideon', and a powerful warship. Using these, the Earthlings sent to investigate the ruins defend themselves in their constant conflicts against powerful aliens called the Buff Clan, who are in pursuit of 'Id', the mysterious energy that powers the Ideon.

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 read more

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
