Galactic Gale Baxingar (銀河烈風バクシンガー Ginga Reppū Bakushingā?) is a mecha anime series that aired from 1982 to 1983 in Japan. There were 39 episodes released. Other loosely translated names include Baxinger, Galactic Stormwind Baxinga and Cosmo Rangers. It is the second of the J9 Series, serving as a sequel to Braiger and is followed by Sasuraiger. Its plot was based on the Japanese late Tokugawa period and the story of the Shinsengumi samurai.
The story is set 600 years after the destruction of Jupiter where the solar system was in a state of peace under the Bakufu government. However, the lawlessness of this new solar system prompts a man named Dan Condor to organize a new J9 team to fight against injustice. Equipped with Cosmobikes, they merge into a super robot named Baxingar.
The main robot, Baxingar, is assembled from five motorbikes and stands at 48 meters tall.
