Product Description

Product Description

Huge monsters stalk the earth! Resembling the ancient legends of Oni, the monsters begin attacking the laboratory where Prof. Saotome developing the Getter Robo, a robot so powerful it overwhelms ordinary pilots! Prof. Saotome then locates three of the most dangerous men on the planet to draft as pilots: Ryoma the fighter, Hayato the bezerker and Benkei the giant!

Amazon.ca

The 2004 OAV New Getter Robo brings back the durable mecha franchise created by Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa in 1974-75. Earth is being attacked by oni ("demons" in Japanese folklore) that may also be aliens. Professor Saotome, who makes Commander Ikari in Evangelion look like Mr. Rogers, has created three vehicles that link to form the redoubtable mecha of the title. ("Getter" comes from getta, "combine" in Japanese.) He needs three pilots who can withstand the strain of guiding these powerful machines: thuggish martial artist Ryoma, screeching fanatic Hayato and none-too-bright monk Benkei. Except for a few bits of CG, New Getter Robo looks no better than the original series did more than 30 years ago. The blood-soaked fights may excite adolescents, but many recent mecha shows offer more coherent story-telling, more likeable characters, and more skillfully directed battles. (Rated 16 and older: graphic violence, grotesque imagery, profanity, brief nudity, sexual and gross humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Fantastic remake of original Getter Robo, closer to the original Manga. Feb. 22 2006
By Jacques-patrice White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a fan of the original Manga and shows (Getter Robo, Getter Robo G, Getter Robo Go, and yes even Armageddon) This one is the best of them all. In the original show the enemy was Evolved Dinosaurs, in this one it goes back to the Manga and they are fighting Demons (The Oni). The Robo's are updates of the originals that look fantastic, the characters are back to the extremes they were in the books. Ryoma is an unbeatable street fighter, Jin Hyato is a downright psychotic murderer. The only diversion to the team is that Benkei is the pilot of getter 3 instead of Musashi. As usual the storyline is bizarre, but it wouldn't be Go Nagai's show if it wasn't a little nutz. The Animation is great, almost as good as Armageddon but I like the style of the new show better. As with all Getter DVD's, go with Japanese audio and subs. The english dub is good, but the subs usually (especially armageddon) explain the stories much better, and the Japanese voices are over the top, which I love. Some of the voices in the dubs a painful in this one, so save it for re-viewing. Awesome show, if you are a Robot fan that you MUST see this, you are missing out if you don't. The anime is also a great drinking game, every time they say Getter down a swig, you won't make it to the 2nd episode.

Go Nagai Forever, Back to Force Five. March 14 2005
By Just a thought - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It is a wonderful seires, the first 4 episodes are really cool.

This is basiclly it for those who know the Getter Robo for the first time,it is a vailoent Giant Robot fighting Alieans searies, this one with the series Box, it is a nice good looking box that you get to put all 4 DVD in it when they are all released by Sep 2005, I am a collector, so I hade to get it.

It also came with a bandana,so I think it is worth the extra $10 over the reguler edition.

Now, for those of us who know the Getter Robo:

This show takes you back as a redo to the very first Getter Robo made in the late 70's,not the one that we knew in the US as Starvengers,no, this one is even for the one before it, it starts with how thw 3 pilots know each other and piloted the Getter Robo.

I really love it as much as I loved the Starvengers, a.k.a Getter Robo G, But I think GoNagai should do a modern version of Grandizer too, he already did Mazinger as Mazinkaizer, Starvengers was was redone 3 times now, Shin Getter Robo in 1999, Neo Getter VS Shin Getter 2001,and now the new Shin Getter. He has also redone Devilman in 1994, it is about time we see a modern versionof Grandizer.
Change Getter One!!!!! Aug. 20 2013

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had to type this again cause, I accidentally deleted my original post of this review. Anyway I really liked this updated version, of the classic giant robot anime Change Getter Robo. Only this time around they're fighting Oni, instead of the Mechasaurus Empire. But leave it to good old, Go Nagai to keep up the level of ultraviolence. As seen in previous titles Getter Robo Armageddon, Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo, Mazinkaiser and Mazinkaiser SKL.But it's still highly enjoyable none the less!

An excellent revival of a legend June 3 2005
By N. O'Brien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Wicked violence, blood everywhere, severed limbs - this isn't your grandpa's old colorful Getter Robo show. In fact, New Getter Robo is actually closer to how Getter was originally intended to be: Although the classic 70's anime adaptation (continued with Getter Robo G, which many know here as Force Five's Starvengers) was toned down for kids, the original Getter Robo comic book was full of gore and graphic violence. Although New Getter Robo dumps the old Reptilian Empire in favor of the creepier Oni, it brings back the dark, violent feel of the original comic, even bringing back some classic moments that never made it into anime form before. However, it's packed with plenty of new material, making it a fresh experience for hardcore Getter fans and newcomers alike.

Although there's not much in the way of immediate character development in this volume and the cast is pretty basic at heart, the characters are brimming with personality and are lot of fun to watch. This goes double for Hayato Jin, destined to become the second Getter pilot: Originally a terrorist (or "revolutionary", as he calls himself) and the brains of his little organization, he won't hesitate to break his normally cool exterior with his psychotic, ultra-violent side when it comes to it - even brutally killing a fellow member of his that chickens out and tries to run away. Watching this side bubble out is quite a sight.

This volume is mostly introduction - each of the first three episodes covering one of the three Getter pilots and the fourth about their struggle to put up with each other and work as a team. Whether you're looking for exciting bloody violence, energetic and downright cool robot fights, or some rough and tough characters like they don't make anymore, this is well worth a look.
