This time around, the Shirunai Clan led by Taro (Shinzo Hotta) sends Gyroges, a giant robot who can shoot his whole arm as a projectile, to destroy a nearby city, and to lure both Gentaro (Shoji Ishibashi), agent for Professor Tsushima, and his guardian angel, giant robot Iron King, to the city and trap them. Soon enough, Iron King engages in one-on-one combat with Gyroges, but when Iron King runs low on water (without it the robot doesn't work), it's gentaro who somehow chases Gyroges away.

Soon enough, Gentaro and his friends, guitar-carrying girl Yukiko (Chieko Morikawa) and klutzy fellow agent Goro (Mitsuo Hamada), who is really Iron King but Gentaro doesn't know that, are captured by the police of the city, who are of course members of the Shirunai clan, as is their leader, the mayor, who actually controls Gyroges. In time for the finale though, Gentaro and co manage to escape, Iron King and Gyroges engage in combat once more, and ultimately Gentaro manages to snatch Gyroges' remote control from the mayor and decide the combat for the side of good.

 

What can I say about Japanese giant robot TV-series ? You've just got to love them (or hate them actually). All the special effects might be less than great, but when the baddies' robot goes on a rampage that's really worth a look. And even though the sequence of teh robot destroying a city is not terribly convincing, it's a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
