Ishibashi), agent for Professor Tsushima, and his klutzy
colleague Goro (Mitsuo Hamada) - who unbeknowest to him is also his
guardian angel, giant robot Iron King - decide to pay a visit to professor
Fukunaga, who has invented a brainwave robot (whatever that is). But of
course, the Phantom Militia is already on their trail, and before you know
it they attack, helped by giant robot Jurass Don, a ball-like creature
with a tiny head that shoots giant tiles from its body and can grow a
second head from its back to better bite its opponents. And while Gentaro
and Iron King are busy saving the town from Jurass Don, the Militia
manages to kidnap the professor.
Soon enough, Gentaro and Goro have tracked down the professor, but they
decide not to attack the place until the next morning, much to the dismay
of the professor's daughter Michiko, who ultimately decides to save the
professor on her own - which only results in her and Goro being taken
prisoner as well ...
Of course, Gentaro ultimately manages to free the two and the professor
as well, but then the Phantom Militia calls in Jurass Don as well, and
soon enough, Goro (as Iron King) is busy fighting the giant robot while in
the chaos that ensues, the Militia manages to capture Michiko, wanting to
trade her in for the professor's secret. The professor sees that he is in
a no-win situation and shoots himself as to not endanger others by his
Of course, Gentaro and Irion King in the end manage to destroy Jurass
Don, but it's a Pyrrhic victory ...
The story of this episode is pretty much tried and true and of only
moderate interest ... but the whole thing is saved by another wacky giant
robot/monster, Jurass Don, which quite simply has to be seen to be
believed. Of course, to really appreciate Jurass Don, you have to be
childishly in love with wacky giant monsters like me ... but then again,
is there any point in watching a series about giant robots at all if
you're over 10 years of age ?
