Storyline

Sent to jail after being accused of murdering Getter Robo creator Dr. Saotome, Ryoma Nagare must once again team up with his former comrades and pilot Getter Robo when Saotome returns from the dead and threatens humanity by unleashing his greatest creation - the Shin Dragon. Their efforts, however, are in vain as they fail to stop a nuclear warhead from hitting Shin Dragon, resulting in a massive Getter Ray contamination that wipes out 99% of the planet's population. Thirteen years after this great catastrophe, mankind continues to fight for survival against the Invaders. Out of the remains of the nuclear blast comes Shin Getter, piloted by the artificial human Go. With remnants of the Japanese military by his side, Go - along with co-pilots Kei and Gai - must use Shin Getter to exterminate the Invaders once and for all. Written by Gavin Nelson

An Adrenaline-rushing, edge-of-your-seat anime!
11 January 2013 | by GetterJAMSee all my reviews

Created in the late 90s, this series is still acclaimed as the best action robot anime ever made. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, known for its high octane level, was a mere parody of this Getter series without actually scaling the same heights.

I enjoyed every second of the Getter show. The never-ending action and intensity keep you constantly on the edge of your seat. (In my case, it made me stay up late a few nights while watching many episodes back-to-back.) Like many viewers, I think the story-telling could have been better. The story does make sense once you understand it. I suspect the creators of the anime intentionally confuse viewers to create suspense!? My second-time viewing resolved many mysteries.

If possible, watch the remastered DVD or Bluray versions with original dub. Performance of the Japanese voice-actors will enhance the viewing experience. Screamed out loud are the array of weaponry during the electrifying combats. WARNING: It will take a while after you finish watching Getter Armageddon (aka Sekai Saigo no Hi) to get screaming like "Getter Beam!!!","Change Getter One!!!" out of your head. So you get an idea of the energy level of this series.

Don't let imperfections in the story-telling take anything away from the quality of the series overall. The impressive battle scenes, the bravery and never-say-die attitude of the Getter team (particularly its leader Ryoma) and the power of the Getter Robos leave a lasting impression. If you understand the plot, the story could actually be quite captivating. Getter Armageddon is definitely a must-watch for action fans! Nothing seems impossible in the world of the Getters. An adrenaline-rush is guaranteed!
