Synopsis:

Deep beneath the surface of the Earth, an evil race is studying the origins of man and seeks to conquer and populate the world. Led by Prince Garuda, his mother, and a number of vicious monsters, the fiends are quick to attack and little hope remains for humanity – that is, except for Professor Nanbara's creation, the super electromagnetic robot Combattler V! This massive piece of machinery is made up of five pieces that are piloted by five young men and women, and represents Earth's only chance of survival against the invaders. Go, Combattler V! Protect the world!

Brave Command Dagwon

Brave Command Dagwon

En, Kai, Shin, Yoku and Ryu were five ordinary students at Sankai High School - that is, until the alien Brave Seijin forced them to become the heroes known as Dagwon to defend planet Earth! Aliens from the space prison Sargasso have targeted the world, and since there's no time to summon Dagwon from the aliens' home planet, the duty falls upon these five unassuming teens. With newfound mecha power and animalistic machines, Dagwon will defend Earth from mummifying monsters, giant ants, and more!

Dagwon and Combattler V are both cheesy as hell mecha anime with the same formulaic crap you'd expect from a series of this type: five typical heroes (one fat guy, one kid, one girl, and two normal guys), parts that join up to make a mecha, and lots of 'let's fight off evil so the planet is saved' elements.

Gatchaman

Gatchaman

In the 21st century, the evil faction known as Galactor is set on world domination… and there’s only one group of people who can stop it: the Science Ninja Team! Under the guidance of Dr. Nambu and the International Science Organization, the team handles everything from taking down giant turtles to battling iron monsters, all in the name of justice! Go go Gatchaman! Take down the evil Galactor and save the world!

Gatchaman and Combattler V are both cheesy series from times of olde,  filled with garish colors and ridiculous outfits for the heroes. While Gatchaman is more of a sentei series and Combattler V is more of a mecha focus, I still think fans of one would like the other.

Toushou Daimos

Toushou Daimos

Upon returning from a mining expedition in space, Kazuya Ryuuzaki and Kyoshiro Yuzuki find that Earth is under attack by alien invaders!

After the battle, Kazuya finds a mysterious woman who has lost her memory – but little does he know that this woman is really the sister of the enemy leader Richter, and little does Richter know that his sister will soon fall in love with his sworn enemy. Determined to win, Richter repeatedly sends his robotic champions against Earth, but Kazuya always manages to fend them off with the help of his karate skills, the mighty Daimos, and sometimes with help from his friends. The invaders want Earth for themselves, Kazuya wants to be with the woman he loves, and Erika is torn between her brother and her lover; only time will tell who will be victorious.

Ajna

Another part of the legendary Romantic Trilogy by Tadao Nagahama (featuring, in chronological order: Chodenji Robo Combattler V, Chodenji Machine Voltes V and Tosho Daimos) and a must-watch for everyone interested in this milestone of old school mecha anime.

Nagahama's distinctive hand comes into play in this show too, adding a human side to the otherwise flat and shallow monster-of-the-week format.

UFO Robo Grendizer

UFO Robo Grendizer

Years ago, after watching his family die at the hands of the Vegan empire, Duke Fleed managed to escape, stealing the powerful UFO Grendizer that the enemy used to destroy his planet in the process. Eventually ending up on Earth, the boy was adopted by Dr. Umon and given the name Daisuke, intent on living out the rest of his life in peace. However, when his father and the mecha pilot Kouji Kabuto realize that the Vegan empire has arrived at Earth to repeat history, Daisuke is forced back into the pilot's seat to save his new home. Alongside Kouji's flying saucer, can Daisuke and his Grendizer stop the fleet and save the world?

While Combattler deals with a group of people who fly a multi-part mech and UFO Grendizer is more of a traditional solo giant robo act, both involve typical old school mecha series elements: alien invaders, mecha must protect the Earthm yadda yadda. If you liked one, try out the other.

Voltes V

Voltes V

Evil aliens known as the Boazanians have invaded Earth, easily defeating all of its conventional military defenses. However, all is not lost: Japan has been secretly developing a mighty weapon – the powerful robot known as Voltes V! This massive mecha is made up of five combat vehicles, three of which are piloted by the sons of Voltes V's inventor; and when the evil Boazanians attack, the five vehicles combine to crush the invaders’ newest evil plot while using their mighty laser sword to slice the enemy robots in two!
