Super Robot: Classic vs Remake Part 2: The Getter Series

It all started with Getter Robo (1974), which gets my vote for greatest robot anime theme song EVER.

Getter Robo G (1975) rehashed the song.  Known as “Starvengers”

From now on it’s alternate universe after alternate universe…

Getter Robo Go (1991) drew a mixed reaction from fans

There was a traditional super-roboish song…

… and a 80s-90s “pop songish” song

Getter Robo Armageddon or (Shin Getter Robo: The Last Day of the World) (1998)

opening 1:

opening 2:

Heck, there was even a videogame

Then there was Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo (2000)

And Shin (New) Getter Robo (2004)

Okay so it was mirror imaged to prevent copyright infringement thingees, I was told.
