New Getter Robo (新ゲッターロボ Shin Gettā Robo?) is an anime original video animation co-produced by Dynamic Planning and Bandai Visual. The series is a re-imagining of the 1970s manga Getter Robo, created by Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa, that incorporates aspects of Japanese mythology like the Oni and Abe no Seimei.
An alternate retelling of the Getter Robo story, it begins with Dr. Saotome, who seeks extraordinary men to pilot his invention - the Getter Robo. Many who have tried to pilot it have died, and his son, Tatsuhito, was seriously injured during a Getter battle. He finds three men to pilot the Getter Robo: Ryoma Nagare, Hayato Jin, and Benkei Musashibo. Now they must battle and destroy the Oni, mysterious creatures that appeared suddenly which happen to resemble the monsters from mythology.
