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.

Old school mecha anime simply are the best if you were born in the right age... Even to a younger audience, the super robots could seem to be quite appealing, years before the real robot genre started by the Gundam franchise (even if Tosho Daimos could be considered a less known precursor).

Invincible Superman Zanbot 3

Kappei is your normal run of the mill delinquent lad, riding motorcycles and trying to gain leadership of a gang. When fighting with a rival, they are both attacked by a strange creature! Fleeing to his Grandfather's nearby sea rig, Kappei is knocked into the water and is rescued by a giant spaceship piloted by his grandparents. Before he can figure out what is going on, he finds himself in the mighty Zam-bird, fighting against the monster that attacked him - a mecha-boost of the planet-destroying Gaizok! Kappei isn't the only one in his family who ends up with a giant robot, though; his cousin Uchuta pilots the Zambull and Keiko pilots the Zambase. Together, the three of them can transform into the Invincible Superman Zambot 3!
