    After 15 years, Gridman returns!
    Originally a live-action series by Tsubaraya and adapted for English-speaking audiences in the West as Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad (hence the SSSS part of the title), SSSS.GRIDMAN is a fine return to sci-fi for Studio Trigger, who have done a fine job both paying homage to and updating the classic series for a new medium and generation. Great care is shown with with the climax of the first ...

    Like an Ultraman anime
    This show gives off a real Ultraman vibe. I used to have toys of the robot guy which really confuses me. I don't know where they came from but they were pretty sick. What is the source material for this? Besides that this show is starting off really well. Absolutely awesome.

    Underwhelming but so much potential....like humanity maybe
    Not sure this series really deserves a 4 star rating but there are some great moments that swayed me enough to deliver the extra star. Overall, not too much to share about this story. None of the characters really achieved their potential. The story seemed unable to deliver just when you thought it might.

    Rikka and Akane are very beautiful, especially their eyes, but there just wasn’t enough ...

    GRIDMAN BABY DON DON BABY DON DON
    Here is a bit of history. The original Gridman aired in 1993 and followed 3 kids who built their own computer in which Gridman inhabited. One of the said kids would fuse with Gridman and fight the monsters and the others would program weapons and vehicles to aid him. The fights would take place inside the computer world were Gridman would stop Khan-Digifier (Kilo-Khan in the US) from using viruses ...

    Captures the classic mecha
    Cheese with extra cheese, in a good way. A lot of anime diehard fans like me could have become jaded, maybe even cynical of new mecha. But, this show delivers the vibes from the good old times when mecha didn't take it's self seriously. IBO Gundam, and so on have become staples in drama, but mecha was about a teenager in a big robot smashing things. Well, here it is! Good laughs, good actors, ...

    Extremely Satisfying, Grand Entertainment
    This show as problematic for me. I wasn't too ready to go launching myself back into the embrace of Trigger after Darling finished up and wasn't exactly keeping up with the other shows I was watching while this was airing. But not quickly finding anything to fill my view time transitioning into winter, I figured I would finally sit down and watch this show. Having finished it, it's still ...

    Solid premise, eager to see more!
    A nice mix of classic tokusatsu, Trigger's Gainax-inspired sensibilities, a dash of Shin Godzilla, and promises of meta-commentary on both anime and Giant Hero shows, I'm very interested to see the rest of the series, even if the first episode feels a little too eager to get its own premise out of the way.

    A triumph of nostalgia and positivism!
    Gridman annihilates the kaiju of depression and alienation in this fantastically conceived series. It's not really a series about punching giant monsters - it's about people overcoming their personal demons with the help and support of others, with kaiju and ultraman fights as stand-ins for people's personal struggles. Additionally, the show feels like an antidote to the depressed deconstructive ...

    A Love Letter to Tokusatsu fans!
    SSSS.Gridman is the biggest surprise of the year over how fantastic of a show it is! After the disappointing finale of Darling in the FranXX (more A1 Pictures fault), Trigger has returned and redeemed themselves with a show that's basically the perfect love letter to fans of classic Kaiju and Tokusatsu movies. What starts off as what appears to be a reboot of the classic Tsurubaya Productions ...
