Daimos, Starbirds, Star
the first time I watched this show was in 1999, I saw the first two
episodes, but couldn't get any more. I tried to look for the rest in many places
with no such luck. Until one day a guy emails me for a trade, Grandizer for all
Daimos. Couldn't say no to such a deal, especially that it was on VCD'S with
excellent quality. I finally got to see the complete show, it was great.
As I was
watching the show, it suddenly hit me, every Japanese Giant Robot show I have
seen is about Defending earth
from out of space invaders. will with the exception of
Mazinger Z a.k.a Tranzor Z
who was fighting insiders from taking over the world. It makes me ask my self a
simple question, WHY? I don't know, but it happens to be very cool.
Tosho Daimos, the third entry in what is known
as the Nagahama Tadao Romance Robot Anime Trilogy (Combattler V & Voltes V being
other 2 pieces of the trilogy), centers around the Brahmin race, a civilization
that lost its home planet and came to Earth in search of a new home. Although
initial talks between the winged Brahmin people and Earth’s representatives were
relatively peaceful, conspirators in their ranks found a way to get rid of the
king and start a war against Earth.
Earth’s weapons are no match for these
invaders and soon many cities fall to their giant robot weapons. In the midst of
this chaos Ryuzaki Kazuya, a young martial expert and the son of a brilliant
scientist, becomes the pilot to a secret weapon developed by his late father,
Tosho Daimos, a powerful robot that will be Earth’s last hope in the fight
against the invaders. However as the battle progresses Ryuzaki finds himself
falling in love with Erika, the Brahmin princess and a strong believer in the
peace process. Will their love be able to thrive as their people fight each
other in a battle for planet Earth?
Is there anything you would like to add?
