Dr. Saotome returns from the dead after being seemingly murdered by Getter pilot Nagare Ryoma and threatens the world with his ultimate creation: the Shin Dragon. Ryoma reluctantly teams up with his former co-pilots Jin Hayato and Tomoe Mushashi to combat Dr. Saotome. The pilots must also deal with the mysterious Invaders, aliens that have the ability to possess humans and warp their flesh to form hideous creatures.

Abridged Review For People Who Don't Like Reading:

Getter Robo Armageddon is a show about giant robots thrashing the shit out of everything with glorious high quality animation. It could also totally kick Jupiter's ass.

Actual Review:

Getter Robo Armageddon - You have to be insane to enjoy this show.


I'm not going to lie to you, the story is awful. It consists of all the typical BS you expect to find in anime and then some. There is incoherent babbling about evolution, a massive explosion that wipes out a good chunk of humanity, the "good guys" saving the Earth from the forces of evil despite the fact that read more

I'm sorry, if you can't understand why this is a fantastic anime, then you're probably not going to understand what exactly MAKES a fantastic anime.
Everything about this, it's the climax of getter robo, it's gritty, hot blooded and so inspiring it spawned TTGL. Everything from HEATS to the end credits, to the very last scene is absolute, 100% what anime SHOULD be like. It makes it really hard to justify this not being one of, if not my favorite anime of all time

This review will be a bit biased because its from a fan of the manga, so lets dive in. First off I love the art design and animation, better than most OVAs today. Next, the story, while incredibly different from the manga, is really good. A bit preachy about evolution, but the manga is like that too, so they nailed that. The characters are pretty good, and they are given enough time to develop their character throughout. The sound is good, a lot of triumphent music, which isn't anything new for the super robot genre. Overall, every, new or old, read more

Darker and edgier reboots are something we have to live with nowadays. The amounts of times that a lighthearted, nostalgic movie gets turned into an ultra gritty one is staggering. But sometimes, maybe that original movie was based on another source, maybe a book, or a comic, which legitimately was dark and gritty. Which was definitely the case with Getter Robo.
The manga is not for the faint of heart, yet its most popular anime adaptation is a standard 1970' mecha anime series. It's fun, sure, but I always wished we would get a more manga accurate take on the franchise. Well, apparently Yasuhiro Imagawa (And read more
