Video Warrior Laserion (ビデオ戦士レザリオン Bideo Senshi Rezarion?) is a Japanese anime series aired in 1984 to 1985.

It was broadcast in Latin America as El Super Laser.

Plot[edit]

The story is centered on Takashi Katori and his best friend, Olivia Lawrence. Takashi, who began as a mere online game fan, developed a small virtual world with his friend David from New York, in which they played their robot combat game. They would play by sending data to each other using satellite technology. One day while they were playing, a scientific experiment using the same satellite was being conducted involving teleporting an American plane from New York to Japan. In a freak accident caused by an explosion during a rebellion by people of the moon who attacked Earth, the plane that was converted into digital information was sent to the virtual world while Takashi's robot information was rematerialized into a real robot.

Takashi was arrested, but later the Earth Government discovered that Dr. Godheim, an evil, broken-hearted genius scientist from the Moon (now a sort of abandoned colony with restricted access) was behind the revolt. The government forces Takashi to pilot the virtual robot Laserion and protect the Earth alongside robot pilots Sarah and Charles and their G1 and G2 robots. In the end, the whereabouts of Takashi's love, Olivia, becomes a matter of concern.

Soon things change,due to the entry of an extraterrestrial,his name is Erefan. He's been captured by the Earth forces,and been brought in to answear their questions about who he really is,what kind of mission he was carrying. But Erefan proves he is benevolent,somehow refusing to talk about his past.But Olivia with her kindness and intellect helps him to express his suppressed recollections,the way was her encouragment to him to draw on a notebook.

It's the arrival of the extraterrestrial Jack Empire makes all things very complicated(episode 26),it's were Erefan reveals he knows them,and a lot about their evil thinkings,tactics and goals.Plus he was dragged to the pitts,he witnessed their cruelty,and the Jack prime minister in the Hall of Throne. The specific notebook (containing his drawings) where the Jacks are illustriated about how they appear,their mechas,and how bout they act. Every one see these images:Blueheim,general Sylvester,Takashi,Olivia,Charles Danner and Sarah see what he had experienced.Thus they realise the dire Danger the Jacks bring.

So he enters the Earth mecha forces( particularly on the good side of Takashi,Charles and Sarah) to help out the earth people against the Jacks.

After several skirmishes and intense fights between Earth and Jack forces the earthmen win the war on the moon. Erefan with his space craft in full capacity(thanks to the efforts of the scientists),bids farewell to his earth friends and departs for his home world(episode 45).
