Five years ago, Dinosaur Emperor Gore and his Mechasaurus army were vanquished by Getter Robo in a catastrophic battle that wiped out New York City. When the threat of invasion looms again, it’s up to ex-robot pilot Hayato to bring forth a new Getter from the ashes… one powered by plasma and controlled by a new generation of heroes! But even with the skills of wild fighter Go Ichimonji, Neo Getter Robo might not be strong enough. Humankind’s best hope still lies in the resurrection of the most dangerous super robot ever: Shin Getter Robo!
Based on Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa’s immortal super robot classic and freely adapted from every corner of the Getter-verse by director Jun Kawagoe (MAZINKAISER SKL, SUPER ROBOT WARS), SHIN GETTER ROBO VS NEO GETTER ROBO is the OVA series with too much high power, man!
