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!

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

HASH(0xa7533870) out of 5 stars Fantastic remake of original Getter Robo, closer to the original Manga. Feb. 22 2006
By J.P.W - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa7d1aa98) out of 5 stars Go Nagai Forever, Back to Force Five. March 14 2005
By Just a thought - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa7528c6c) out of 5 stars Change Getter One!!!!! Aug. 20 2013
By Yattaman X-79 - Published on
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!

HASH(0xa7528ed0) out of 5 stars Grim but fun! Feb. 4 2015
By Logan B. Howard - Published on

This is great fun. Be prepared for a very dark, gritty experience. This pays tribute to the Ken Ishikawa vision. These heroes are not nice people. They are vicious men who are brutal enough to endure the Getter rays that power their machines.
