Ken Ishikawa wrote and illustrated the Getter Robo Arc manga, and it was published in Super Robot Magazine until the magazine was cancelled. In 2006, the Getter Robo Arc was put on hiatus when Ken Ishikawa passed away, aged 58. Thus, it’s absolutely great to see a TV anime for his unfinished work, that continues his legacy. However, it’s important to note that he co-created the Getter Robo anime (and manga) series together with Go Nagai. He’s still going strong at the age of 75, he’s known for Cutie Honey, Devilman and Mazinger Z. Therefore, I’m overjoyed and excited to see a new Getter Robo TV anime, and I hope you are as well. So, scroll down and watch the latest Getter Robo Arc trailer!

Plot: “Ten years after the disappearance of Ryoma Nagare, Go Ichimonji and Messiah Tyr on Mars, the Saotome Institute is now under the command of Hayato Jin to train new pilots for protecting Earth against extraterrestrial threats both from within and beyond the planet. In the wake of the invasions between the remnants of the Dinosaur Empire and the swarm of technorganic insect-like aliens from the Andromeda Flow Country, the Saotome Institute created a new Getter unit: the Getter Robo Arc, meant as the final legacy of Professor Saotome and also humanity’s last hope against looming threats in order to protect humanity from its own extinction. But the appearance of another Getter robo piloted by the only son of Ryoma Nagare further complicates the situation.”
Getter Robo Arc is directed by Jun Kawagoe, who directed Getter Robo Armageddon (1998) and Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo (2000). Bee Media’s Getter Robo Arc is written by Tadashi Hayakawa, and is slated to premiere on July 4, 2021!
