Product Description

In the Bedroom & On the Battlefield It Takes Two to Tangle! Five years ago, as the Mimetic Beasts laid waste to Japan, Dannar Pilot Go saved young Anna Aoi’s life. Now, as they prepare to march down the aisle, a new Beast appears and Go is summoned into battle once more. But he’s not going alone, not if his blushing bride to be can help it! It’s a honeymoon from hell as two stubborn mecha pilots bump heads, egos and other bits; but if Anna and Go can mate their robots’ interlocking parts, they’ll form the ultimate marriage of man, woman and machine! The battle of the sexes and the battle for the future of mankind are fought simultaneously in the wildest giant robot series ever, GODANNAR!

The sci-fi broadcast series Godannar (2003) is set in the not-too-distant future, five years after the alien Mimetic Beasts attacked Earth. Although they were supposedly defeated, at least one appears in every episode. Seventeen-year-old Anna wants to be a mecha pilot, so she can join her new husband Goh in fighting the Beasts. She gets her chance when the Neo-Okusaer robot rises out of a graveyard: with Anna at the helm, it successfully fuses with Goh's mecha to form Godannar, an über-robot that can beat the sashimi out of any Mimetic Beast. In between monster attacks, misunderstandings arise between the pneumatic females in the cast and the largely ineffectual males. Director Yasuchika Nagaoka moves everything at a frantic pace, trying to disguise the characters' utter lack of personalities. Godannar plays like an unsuccessful attempt to blend Evangelion, Bubbblegum Crisis, and Daphne in the Brilliant Blue: even the mecha jiggle in some shots. It's strictly for fans of big-eyes-big-breasts-big-guns anime. (Rated TV MA, suitable for ages 16 and older: Nudity, violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

If you're looking for something serious, go see "Evangeleon" or "Grave of FireFlies." If you're looking for something pointless, go see "Excel Saga." If you want funny, charming, delightful, adventurous, romantic, melodramatic, and overall just a plain good time, pick up Godannar! An odd series about a guy named Goh. Poor Goh. He's a robot pilot, pretty serious and determined, although he can get rather dramatic and sentimental when women are concerned. And a lot of women drop into his lap (and house): his wife, Anna, a 17 year old girl he saved five years ago and who has a mega-hero-worship thing (cannot figure out why Goh chose Anna, tho) who also becomes a robot pilot, although she hasn't told her schoolmates she's married; Mira, the old girlfriend who died but isn't dead and who has come back rather "out of it"; Lu, the orphan that Goh takes under his wing as a 'daughter'; another robot pilot who has a crush on him; his new wife's busty mother (and his boss); and add a pregnant cat. Every episode seems to need at least one battle where Anna and Goh's robots join together (in fact, every robot needs to do that...why not just create one robot that can do both?), a battle that only Goh and Anna can resolve. Goh can go over the top emotionally, but that's funny, too. There are also a Lot Lot Lot of cleavage (but minimal nudity), sexually charged jokes and situations, and random funny stuff. Gotta watch this series.

In the first couple of episodes, we are quickly introduced to the plot concept--Minimic beasts ransacking the world--and the characters (as above).

At first glance, especially the box and DVDs, it looks like some pervo anime. I was hoping to God when I bought it, that it wasn't going to suck. To my surprise, I was jumping out of my seat on the first disc. This thing is action packed and awesome to watch. If you are a robot/fighting anime lover or just love anime period this is for you. The story line is excellent the visuals are awesome. You dont have to honestly understand the plot to get the point. This is one of those miracle animes that does exactly what the fans want and expect from it. It will even do some unexpected stuff and cause your jaw to drop. The girls may be a distraction at times, but never long enough for you to forget about the fighting and the robots. Its almost as if you could feel every hit or punch that was made when you watched. 5 out of 5 all the way man.

This is by far the best anime, or show of any kind, that I have ever seen.

Whether or not this is for you will depend on your personal tastes. This is a show in a new genre of its own. Hopefully more shows like this will be made in the future.

Story: So far there seems to be a decent story behind all of the action, but mostly this is a show about fighting and action. In fact, all 5 episodes on this first DVD contain nothing but fighting!! Everyone runs around shouting and fighting continuously for the whole length of every episode. At most 3 minutes per episode is left over to spend on the story and character development. There's no time to talk when monsters keep destroying your city 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!! Giant robots to the rescue!!

Art: I think Godannar has an excellent art style. If you saw the trailer (or the DVD box) you might think this is one of those big-boobie-girly type animes. But so far this show has mainly been about fighting. The big-boobie shiny girls are there just to look nice but they don't seem to detract from the action.

Animation: By far the best animation quality of any anime I've ever seen. Imagine the most action-packed high-quality cool anime intro you've ever seen, then imagine an anime just like that except with the high-quality animation lasting throughout each episode, and you get Godannar!!

Directing: Godannar is actually done in a fairly serious manner, with extremely fast-paced excellent directing. There is a continuous stream of comedy being injected into the show at all times (due to all the big-boobie girls and craziness) but it's totally kept in control by the overall serious (though unrealistic and stylized) nature of the constant fighting and shouting that goes on.

This one is a bit of a throwback to the 70's style big robot anime or rescue team style of Voltron, G-Force, etc. However, in addition to the action of saving the world against an unknown threat, there is a love story of an awkward marriage between a 17 year old - Anna, and a 30 something Goh, plus the reapperance of an old flame. The fact that Anna's mom is also hot and about the same age as Goh, and every other woman in the series is a beautiful buxom babe only adds to the tension, and the distraction. Godanner is full of fanservice, provocative camera angles, and "boings". The women's figures are extremely bodacious and almost to the point of outrageous, as Kirikio's chest would make Jessica Rabbit blush with envy. Almost every one of her scenes is punctuated by a close up cleavage shot, or a lot of jiggling when she (or any of them) talks or yells, which may or may not end with her blouse breaking open from the weight of her bosom. The other characters have their signature costumes and fantastic figures, and each robot team (always made up of a man and woman) once co-joined to form a stronger robot, puts its pilots in suggestive poses in their respective cockpits. The series has several subplots which keep you hanging on for more and more information about the other characters, but most of the action centers around Goh and Anna in these first few episodes. The fighting is very well detailed and drawn, but don't expect much technical information about the mecha or their enemy. This series is all about the action, innuendo, the over top characters, and, of course, the ample bosoms.
