Giant Robo OVA - The Day the Earth Stood Still -

Giant Robo OVA - The Day the Earth Stood Still -

This is one awesome OVA which surprisingly has very little mecha action and Giant Robo seems to stand mothionless most of the time. Its more "character driven" which seems to always work in good sci-fi ala Battlestar Galactica. 

Always like to see steampunk and this has plenty of it, all the mecha are big lumbering steal giants with exposed rivets with the world they inhabit a future world with that industrial victorian style.

Strange thing about the anime is that Giant Robo and  Daisaku Kusuma are the only characer from the original Gaint Robo, seems that every other character is taken from Mitsuteru Yokoyama library of work. Amazing that such a thing could happen and turn out so good.
