NotesEdit

  • While Keita Amemiya himself has not confirmed this, this series seems to be inspired by the works of Mitsuteru Yokoyama, as it shares a few of the tropes of shows such as Tetsujin-28 and Giant Robo.
    • The story centers around a kid who controls a giant robot: (Shotaro Kaneda with Tetsujin-28, Daisaku Kusama with Giant Robo, Kazeo Isurugi with Mikazuki).
    • The robots battle enemies that have some connection to it.
    • All three robots are brawler types, using non-weapon based finishing moves such as punches and kicks as their primary attacks.
  • The TV show's production was very expensive, costing over ¥1,000,000,000 (over $9,000,000 US). This is the result of using heavy amounts of CGI (which was still a fairly new and expensive concept for TV at the time) elaborate costume and set designs and a slow production schedule, airing one episode each month.
