Well, just the OVA specials are in SD. Not the actual main series. Shame, but it's fine by me.

No doubt, the soundtrack elevates this OVA immensely, it is a character in and of itself.

My favourite tracks, among many to choose from, are:

- Big Fire's Theme (from Episode 5)

- Rush! Issei & Yoshi (from Episode 2)

See post 2 of this thread.

The soundtrack for this OVA is simply brilliant, one of the greats of all time, and not just for anime, I mean for anything.

This OVA presentation of Giant Robo is one I've heard about for years but have never watched. So with the news of the blu-ray release I tracked down some clips -- pretty cool from what little saw, right up my alley. It also struck me that the Giant Robo OVAs may be the single biggest influence in the creation of Big O; the creative team for Big O has long been clear that GR was always part of the mix of influences but the OVAs in particular seem significant.

I'm a fan of the super robot genre and still want to pick up Big O; definitely going to add Giant Robo to my must buy list

From Giant Robo Wikipedia:

Quote:
The final episode was released January 1998, almost three years after episode six. In between releases, members of the Giant Robo staff worked on other projects including The Big O, Getter Robo Armageddon, and Super Atragon
