Giant Robo (ジャイアントロボ Jaianto Robo) is a manga by Mitsuteru Yokoyama, in which the huge robot of the same name as the title appears. Tokusatsu, anime, etc. based on this manga were produced.

Since the Toei Company requested a plot for a tokusatsu TV series from Yokoyama, he wrote this manga. Yokoyama made the settingGiant Robo follows only a hero” as a differentiation from his other character, Tetsujin 28, a giant robot which everyone can control. GR: Giant Robo (GR ジャイアントロボ GR: Jaianto Robo) is an animated TV series written by Chiaki Konaka (Serial Experiments Lain, The Big O) and directed by Masahiko Murata (Jinki:EXTEND, Mazinkaiser). The TV series is a re-imagining of Mitsuteru Yokoyama‘s manga and was created to commemorate Giant Robo’s 40th anniversary.

GR premiered January 19, 2007. The series finished its run on July 6 of the same year, totaling 13 episodes, with the possibility for two further seasons.
