Synopsis

Austral Island is located 2,000 km south from Samoa islands. The existence of the island was removed from the official records, and Tagami Yuu made a journey to search for the reason.

He sailed for the island with Dr. Waive who was his father's friend, Doris who is the daughter of Dr. Waive, and Captain who is the friend of Dr. Waive. On their way to the island, GAIL, the international conglomerate, and gangster, Cougar Connection lead by Lady Lynx attacked them.

They managed to arrive at the island, but suddenly a mysterious monster began to attack them. When they became ready for death, a blue giant robot appeared. It destroyed the monster and saved them. Although it was an existence far beyond human knowledge, it reminded Yuu of something warm and familiar.

It was Giant Gorg which is called "Messenger of the God" by the inhabitants of the island. Escaping from the attack of GAIL's assault team, Gorg guided Yuu into the underworld. There, he found alien's relic and an alien who woke up after 30,000 years' sleep.

I don't really have anything to add as a review, the previous two reviewers summed up most things pretty well, just a couple of things. This is a kids show, but a Japanese one, meaning there is blood, there is death, and there is no "political correctness". I myself was surprised at how stunned I was to see these, so ingrained is the notion of the harmless inoffensive kids show in western society. Not that these are of such importance to the show, they are not, it simply is something the previous reviews didn't address. In the end, all you need to know is that ...

Giant Gorg is a rather rare kind of anime even by retro standards - one of perhaps very few anime that would classify as pure "adventure". Being made in the early eighties, it gives off the kind of charm you'd expect in a Steven Spielberg sci-fi film from those times - a hair-raisingly perilous journey undertaken in search of something unknown, something wondrous, all the while being chased by nefarious baddies with vested interests. While the setup itself may not sound especially original, what the show really has going for it is its consistent degree of physical realism and attention to detail. Its taut and ...

I just wanted to draw some attention to Kyoshin Gorg (Giant Gorg). An anime that (at time of making this review) has only been viewed by 205 MAL users. Despite being as good as it is.

This anime was made in 1984 however the quality of ...
