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.
