Gaogaigar

Post by Tachyon » Fri Aug 01, 2003 3:06 am

I was flipping through a new artbook for Gaogaigar today and I was wondering, has anyone here seen any of it? Was it just a TV series or were there also OAV's? I was wondering if it was good or not.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

I haven't seen it, but I've heard good things. I'd like to see it, as with most of the Super Robot Animes. I've only really got experience in Gundam, although I'm going to pick up some Mazinger sometime.

The super robot anime can be a lot of fun. I'd like to see more of it myself. Perhaps Gaogaigar will come to DVD with subtitles soon. I'd also like to see the new Mazinger OAV series.

I have seen the entire series, and the OVA sequel Gaogaigar Final.

Gaogaigar is one of the best super robot shows ever made!!!

Its directed by Imagawa (who did Giant Robo and G-Gundam) and it is a BLAST! It is by far the best yuusha series (Brave Command DugOne being a close second) and it is so wild. The animation is really good, the mecha are cool, the characters are totally wild (including the requisite blonde american girl with huge boobs) the enemies are unique, the use of CG is modest but effective, and the music is excellent!!!!

See it if you can.

How does it stack up against the classics of the genre?

Seriously, it stacks up SUPER well. It is so completely and utterly balls-out. Have you seen Shin Getter Robo? The same guy directed the first episode of that. Its WILD. And really really good... GOD is it good. So fun. I mean, the super mecha are SO super, the attacks are so crazy and cool...

OH! And most importantly, Gaogaigar is the only city-defending super robot which is actually designed to defend its city without causing damage! Gaogaigar's weapons and attacks are inherently conceived to spare the city around it, and to "heal" and "dispel" the monster-machine enemies, rather than blow them up.

Ahem. Anyway, I cannot recommend Gaogaigar highly enough.

I haven't gotten the chance to see Shin Getter Robo (its on my "to Get" list), but I'll take your word for it.

sounds awesome, looks like I have to add it to my list too

It is awesome, and some of the designs, at least in Final OVA, are beautiful. (Genesic Gao Gai Gar), some of Okawara's best, I'd say.

Definately recommeded as high energy robot fun. More information about it can be found on this unofficial site: http://www.goshouworld.com/GaoGaiGar/ although it seems only to have the series stuff there.

The super robot anime can be a ton of fun. I'd get a kick out of the chance to see a greater amount of it myself. Maybe Gaogaigar will come to DVD with subtitles soon. I'd additionally get a kick out of the chance to see the new Mazinger OAV arrangement.
