From the mind of the legendary Go Nagai comes the globally iconic and hot blooded GETTER ROBO!

Image

The very super robot that came up with the idea of robots transforming and/or combining, Getter Robo was originally an early 70s manga that was eventually sent onto television in 1974. One year later a follow up sequel series called Getter Robo G built on what the original started and perfected it; the series did have US release under the title of Starvengers. In the early 90s the franchise had a reboot series called Getter Robo Go, introducing the Neo Getter with a new crew and the legendary Shin Getter Robo; strangely enough this is the most obscure of Getter Robo-dom. A few years later a 13 episode OVA called Shin (Change!) Getter Robo was released at the end of the OVA boom, being more faithful to the manga and introduced a dark and gritty aspect to the franchise; it became such a smash hit it was eventually released in the US under the title Getter Robo Armageddon. In 2000 a 4 part OVA called Shin Getter vs. Neo Getter got back to the roots of the original series and acts like a remake to an extent. Finally came 2004's 13 part OVA New Getter Robo, essentially being a complete remake of Getter Robo G with onis that act like movie zombies and with giant killer oni controlled by the Japanese legendary sorcerer Semei Abe (our equivalent would be Merlin from the story of King Arthur) and the Four Heavenly Kings of Eastern legend; like Armageddon this was released in the US.

Getter Robo has inspired, directly or indirectly, many series and franchises including Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, GaoGaiGar, Ultraman Tiga and Dyna, Aquarion, Transformers, Golion (aka Lion Force Voltron), and countless others.

Read the manga yesterday, after /m/ suggested it. I liked Ishikawa's Mazinger Z one shot, so I figured why not.


Quite possibly one of, if not the, most badass things I've ever read or seen, let alone one of the best mecha series.

You mean Ken Ishikawa. Also, the Getter Robo manga (especially Getter Robo Go) is probably some of my favourite super robot stuff ever. Looking forward to when Getter Robo Arc/Āḥ gets translated.

Getter 1, 2, and 3 are the original. Dragon, Poseidon, and Liger are Getter G.
Shin Getter follows the same naming pattern as the original. It's also hax incarnate in the manga (according to /m/, I have only read plain ol' Getter Robo and not the sequels yet).

Seriously, check the manga out. It's badass as all hell. OVAs are also pretty good, apparently.

The Dragon, Poseidon, and Liger sequence is also used by Shin Dragon after it morphs into Shin Getter Dragon.
You mean Ken Ishikawa.

Yes, though to be fair Go Nagai was involved with it's creation.
And just on a another note I love how the main character yells out GETTER BEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now, Getter Robo G has been finished.

I think that just leave Getter Robo Āḥ to be scanlated.

So does anyone with more knowledge of Japanese than me have any idea what this is: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-2000110.
It would appear to be a Shinsouban (meaning "New Edition") of Getter Robo Arc, but I can't find any info on the release. Shinsouban releases tend to have redrawn pages, and sometimes even entirely new scenes, but with Ishikawa-sensei, y'know, dead, I couldn't see this happening. There are 3 volumes so this could just be a high quality release of the tankoban, but I'd like to know if anyone canfind and info on the Japanese web.

Those who acted in order to live until the end, without losing themselves to fear and what was happening around them, are the ones who survived properly. We don't know what "God" is thinking, but both fortune and misfortune are thrust upon people. Even so, people exist within a domain that is theirs in which to act."
