The story is about 16 years old boy Takeshi who recently formed an American football team at the BlueSky orphanage. One day the game is interuppted by a light in the sky. Takeshi discovers he is the son of the king of the planet Apolon, spirited away to Earth by his father's retainer Rabi to avoid death at the hands of General Dazaan. He turns out to have special energy abilities which can control UFO saucers from under the ocean floor, which in turn can become robots that are synchronized to their movements.

Allow me to write a few words since there is no review for this series so far. In brief, I would say that it a standard 70's anime giant robot series that any fan of the genre would enjoy.

Dai Apolon is a giant robot, made from three different robots, gettting the 3-part idea from the previously released classic Getter Robo. The main character Takeshi is a 16-year-old orphan that is revealed to be a prince from planet Apolo raised at an orphanage. Along with four other orphan chilrden they make the UFO shounen team against the Dazaan forces that are attacking Earth.
