The Super Robot anime Lightspeed Electrogod Albegas (光速電神アルベガス Kousoku Denjin Arubegasu) debuted in 1983 amongst a sea of many robot anime. Had things gone differently for World Events Productions, this would have been formally incorporated into the Voltron mythos.
Three High School kids named Daisaku Enjouji, Tetsuya Jin and Hotaru Mizuki, construct three giant robots named Alpha Robot, Beta Robot and Gamma Robot as part of a school science fair. At the same time, the evil Derringer Empire decides to expand its domain to Earth: the planet, which had reached almost complete peace, is completely unprepared. When the villains begin their attack, Hotaru’s dad Professor Mizuki modifies the robots into combat machines that can merge into the Super Robot Albegas.
This work features examples of:
- Combining Mecha: In six different ways!
- Humongous Mecha
- Improbable Age: Three kids, still in High School, building three giant robots. ‘Nuff said.
- Missing Mom: Hotaru's. She suggests her father, Professor Mizuki, to marry his assistant Reiko.
- Multiform Balance
