A mysterious explosion on Futagami Island begins a new chapter in the Dangaioh mythos! Witnessed as a bright light up in the sky by only one, young girl, the arrival of a mysterious someone in the sky may or may not be a signal for the end of the human race.

Flash-forward to ten years later. Led by the evil Professor Katou, a band of warriours calling themselves the "Tartarus Knights" have, thanks to the help of four mighty generals, begun their campaign to lay waste to the world. Their final objective? A small research station on Futagami Island. Katou's victory seems almost certain until he encounters guarding the island an advanced fortress. From it, a group a three humanoid robots are launched-Dangaioh!

A new, thirteen-episode series from the creative mind of Toshiki Hirano (creator of the 1989's Dangaioh OAV series), Great Dangaioh is the culmination of years of questions and excitement from viewers both in Japan and in North America. A series that many fans have long felt needed to be made, at last the legend of Great Dangaioh lives on, after a decade of silence...

Like that sultry start to a hot night with that special someone but ends in shame, Great Dangaio has a great start in the first three volumes...but is sooo anticlimactic. This starts out at a level above the typical mecha anime right on through the end of vol 3. But the last episode of volume 4 is just so lame that it affected any decent rating I could give for the whole series. Its sort of like, they had this production staff for the series and then for the last freakin episode they replace the entire staff with people who have no idea what the story is or what direction its supposed to go but just willy nilly start from somewhere--and fail miserably. 2 stars out of 10. Avoid this one.
