Manga reboots 1975 series UFO Robo Grendizer

Production company Dynamic Planning began streaming an animated promotional video for Go Nagai's Grendizer Giga manga on Monday. The promotional video commemorates the first volume of the manga, shipping on April 20 in Japan, as well as Grendizer's 40th anniversary. Yoshimasa Hosoya narrates the video.

The video contains a brief scene that is not safe for work.

Nagai launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine in September. The story is a full reboot of Nagai's UFO Robo Grendizer story. When a great fleet of flying saucers invades Earth, it awakens the true power of Daisuke Uryū. (The main lead of UFO Robo Grendizer was named Daisuke Umon.)

UFO Robo Grendizer was the third installment of Nagai's Mazinger giant robot franchise. The original Grendizer anime and manga launched in 1975, and the anime was later imported to the United States as part of Jim Terry's Force Five project. It would also inspire three anime films.
