Hayato Hayasugi (his last name is a pun on the words for "too fast") and other children will serve as conductors to pilot the Shinkalion. The Shinkalion robots are various models of real-life Japanese bullet trains (shinkansen) that transform into robots to fight an unknown evil to protect the safety and peace of Japan.

The children must work together with the adults of the Shinkansen Ultra Evolution Institute (SUEI) to defeat a monster that looks like a jet black bullet train.

If you like mecha with good visuals and fun, also for people that want to start mecha, get to have a chance to learn more about Japan and the trains/RAILWAY,there too, you in for some badass knowledge XD, people MUST WATCH this one Shinkansen.

This is like the Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V of mecha. not your standard thing and more people need to watch both. Both are very FLASHY and has that SPIRIT AND ENERGY !!!!! The ANIMATION of Shinkansen is GODLY during transformation sequence of the Shinkansen trains (bullet trains/super high speed trains) to robots, BEST I'VE SEEN, dude I've seen a lot of robot anime. read more
