Synopsis

The genius robotics professor, Dr. Komyoji has created Jiro (who has the ability to transform into Kikaider) – a humanoid robot tasked with the protection of Dr. Komyoji’s son, Masaru, and daughter, Mitsuko. Gifted with a conscience circuit, which has the power to simulate real emotions that helps to distinguish between “right and wrong”, Jiro must protect Mitsuko and Masaru from the evil Dr. Gil who wants Jiro to join his army and aid in his goal of world domination.

Background

The story of kikaider is about....well you can read the synopsis up there. Sound like your typical hero story but its so well told & a bit of twist at the end.

Art in the anime is old school meaning old astroboy like artwork since ishinomori sensei is one of student osamu tezuka had. I really like the artwork, its stay true to the original manga art & for those who think its ugly can suck it.

The music is very well done, the op is read more
