Chō Kōsoku Galvion (超攻速ガルビオン, Chō Kōsoku Garubion, lit. Super High Speed Galvion) is a 22-episode anime television series mecha series that aired in Japan in 1984. It revolves around criminals using robots to save innocents in exchange for years being cut from their long prison sentences. The program did not fare very well and had its planned number of episodes cut; a 23rd episode was partially completed but did not air. Episode 22 was a typical episode but had a 35-second epilogue tacked onto the end that explained the series' planned outcome via voice-over narration and stills. This series was also one of the last to be animated by the studio Kokusai Eiga-sha.

Story[edit]

Airing on Japanese television in 1984, the 22 episode anime Super High Speed Galvion features mecha designs by Koichi Ohata (of Gunbuster fame). In the 23rd century billionaire Midoriyama Rei creates a secret organization called Circus to combat a hidden group called Shadow that is taking over the world.
