In this anime, informally known as KOREAN TRON, the Saviors of the Earth enter the electronic world of the sinister Doctor Butler when he throws the world into the state of chaos via acts of terrorism in the USA, Japan, France and the Pacific Ocean. Doctor Butler intends to enslave the world with his powerful Dark Energy computers, so it’s up to Dr. Kim, Sheila and Keith to save the humanity in the Deadly Game, a virtual battlefield. Allegedly, comic writer Roy Thomas (creator of Wolverine, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) worked on the English language version.

Imagine the anime classic Mazinger Z, only cheaper. Much, much cheaper. When the wicked T. Devil plots to take control of the galaxy, he enlists evil Andrew to help him in his quest for inter-galactic domination. Andrew starts capturing all of Earth’s spaceships in order to investigate the planet. Meanwhile, Earth’s scientists become curious about the disappearing ships and form a squad to investigate. When Andrew begins the invasion, the squad must enter into an epic (yet minimally animated) space battle with the aliens (and a robot dog). The fate of the world at stake!

Elements of Mazinger Z, Gundam, Space Battleship Yamato and Transformers are borrowed liberally in this mecha mini-epic. Nicholas, ruler of the Zinba Empire, wants to expand his territory by turning the Earth into his own private territory. A group of youngsters discover the destruction on Earth while vacationing on Mars and enlist cave-dwelling Dr. Han and Fred to find an immortal bird called the Phoenix King, a mythical guardian of Earth with the power to defeat Nicholas.
