Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still
ジャイアント・ロボ - 地球が静止する日
Japan, 1992  TV  

Directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa


Animated series of seven episodes created between 1992 and 1998, based on the original Giant Robo (ジャイアントロボ) manga by Mitsuteru Yokoyama. The series features characters and plotlines from the entire manga, but presented in an all-new story. The events take place in the near future and follow 12-year old Daisaku Kusama, master of a giant robot, and international police organization Experts of Justice in a battle with a secret society aiming to gain world domination. The titular Giant Robo wearing a nemes-like headdress has clearly Egyptian features, but the storyline itself contains no references to any ancient Egyptian origin. Also entitled "Giant Robo - The Animation". See also the earlier (1967) live-action adaptation of the same manga entitled "Johnny Soko and His Flying Robot".
