Humanity is under attack by demonic creatures called Oni. Unable to fight back by any other means, the scientist Dr. Saotome creates a series of giant robots that harness the mysterious power of Getter Rays, giving them the strength necessary to fight the Oni. The strongest of these is Getter Robo, and Saotome must enlist three very different men to pilot it - martial artist Ryoma Nagare, criminal leader Hayato Jin, and monk Benkei Musashibou. Together, the Getter Team fights to end the Oni menace forever.

The story of New Getter Robo is definitely not its forte. Rather than focusing on actual storytelling, the plot mostly just seems like an excuse to pit the three violent and near-psychotic men against legions unfortunate foes. While this may put off some viewers, it does make for plenty of screen time ...

Mixed Feelings
First, this was my first experience with the Getter Robot series and I didn't read anything about the manga or the 1974 main series.

Getter Robot is one of the most popular fuses and my experience watching the anime was quite satisfactory, despite the series having only 13 episodes I think the ending was interesting.

The characters are the strongest point of the work and I really like how they have different personalities, that ...
