After Generation 1 ended in Japan, Takara continued their tradition of robot anime with a series of shows collectively known as Yūsha, or Brave. The last and best of these, released just before Takara started importing Beast Wars in 1997, was The King of Braves GaoGaiGar!
In the middle of a snowstorm, a baby boy is delivered to a childless couple by…a giant robot lion?! Eight years later, while on a school field trip, the boy is caught in the middle of a battle between a robotic kaiju made of garbage and a cyborg piloting the very same lion mecha! But what’s the connection between them? Who is the Gutsy Geoid Guard, and how did they gain control of Galion? Just what was the animation budget for Guy’s hair? And will Jen stop talking about Evangelion? Join us this week as we watch The King of Braves GaoGaiGar Episode 1: King of Braves is Born!
