The brilliant Dr. Azuma created many robots to aid humankind. However, during a thunderstorm his lab was struck by lightning, corrupting the programming of one of his robots, BK-1, who renames himself Braiking Boss and declares that instead of serving mankind, mankind will now serve him! He brings other robots together into an overwhelming army bent on enslaving the human race.

Tetsuya, Dr. Azuma's son, asks his father to turn him into an indestructible android so that he will have the power to destroy the threat his father inadvertently created. Shortly thereafter, Braiking Boss captures Dr. Azuma and his wife. Tetsuya, now renamed Casshern, sets out to turn the tide of the war and rescue his parents, with the help of his girlfriend, Luna, and robot dog, Friender.

-Cheesy 70s action
-Episodic series
-Saturday morning cartoon level of plausibility.

then this is not for you.

-If you're looking for a coherent prequel that connects the stories of "Casshern Sins" & "Casshan Robot Hunter"

Look somewhere else.
But if you'll like to see the 1st time these characters were all brought together then keep on reading.

To say that Shinzou Ningen Casshern ( or Neo Human Casshan) is an overlooked title is a understatement. The very fact that there's only 1 review for this show on MAL and sometimes no episode discussions should already say enough. But even read more

Ideally, I would say that this is the place you would want to start if you are just getting into the Casshern series. Keeping this in mind, I would inform the readers of this review that I have seen the OVA and the more recent Casshern Sins anime. Unless you care nothing for the actual "story" then I would say proceed straight to Casshern Sins. Do not fool yourself into thinking that you can start with Csins and have a grasp in what Casshern is all about. Though its story is interesting to say at least, it is told from a completely different perspective. This read more

I'm just going to come out and say it— anime wouldn't be where it is today without Tatsunoko Productions. In fact, I don't think shounen heroes would be what they are today without Casshern. I just hope that someone will try this anime for him or herself and see if I'm right or wrong. I highly recommend it, which is not going to be a secret.

Set in a world where robots cooperate and work for humans, the story of the anime Shinzou Ningen Casshern, a 1973 post-apocalyptic shounen-like anime, revolves around the relationship between both human and machine. Dr. Kotaro Azuma is a genius engineer read more

The original Casshern is much different than the “cool, moody” version of the series that was stylistically conceptualized in Casshern Sins. While darker than the typical Tatsunoko series, Casshern is pretty much like a cyborg version of Adam West’s Batman or more accuratelyーa copypasta Megaman, because that game series obviously borrowed many of its designs and aesthetics from Casshern! There are way too many similarities to say otherwise!

• In a world ruled by the evil Braiking Boss and his evil, robotic minionsーbattling these heinous foes is a tremendous burden; with the risk of Casshern foregoing his humanity at the helm, a more accurate description of the read more
