Can Salarymen save the Earth? Of Course they fukken can! (Dai-Guard 1-6)
This is the story… … …
Of a few brave young pilots… … …
And their desire to save the day with their corporate economic sinkhole of an attraction. Which was originally built as an anti-alien weapon. While trying to keep said robot from being liquidated, because, you know, all that red tape is gonna suck.
And when an old-school super robot fan is in the driver’s seat, you know that THIS could be a very hard thing to do. Even if the military sent in an adviser who knows his shit to rein in their hot-blooded antics.
…And that’s just the first 6 episodes in a nutshell. Dai-Guard is weird and rooted in corporate muddling, but the mecha design reminds me of GaoGaiGar and if all else fails, Tamura Yukari is playing a bit-role here and there’s Tanaka Kouhei making the music.
I still can’t believe I have never watched this show in full before. This show is wonderful.
