Meanwhile, Mr. Shinoda's fifth-grade class is staying after hours due to poor scores on a recent test. Some odd activity in the afternoon sky catches the attention of the students, and they stare outside, dumbfounded... until they realize the unidentified object is heading straight for them crap crap ''crap get out of the way!!'' Robot falls, everyone dies.

Actually, no! With the last of his power, Eldoran is able to preserve the children's lives... at the cost of his own. However, the threat of the Jaku Empire still looms above the Earth. With Eldoran gone, there's no one to pilot Raijin-Oh, so he must name an heir quickly and pass on the power to someone who can defend the planet in his stead. Unfortunately, the only ones around to ask are the fifth-graders he just rescued. Left with no other choice, he passes the robots onto the children with little explanation, and uses the strength he has left to reformat their classroom into a pimped-out computer command center.

This series is particularly notable due to recent developments. Almost 20 years after first airing in Japan, it was licensed by a brand-new anime distribution company called [[http://www.animemidstream.com Anime Midstream]]. Despite many doubts, Midstream successfully released the first volume of Raijin-Oh at the end of December 2009. It's too early to judge how successful they're going to be but here's hoping they can make it in the world.

* MidSeasonUpgrade: Raijin-oh combines with Bakuryu-Oh to become God Raijin-oh. This also applies to the MonsterOfTheWeek (Jaku Beasts) when Jaku Satan merges with it.

to:

* MidSeasonUpgrade: Raijin-oh combines with Bakuryu-Oh was introduced as such in its debut episode, but subverted in the rest of the series when it was clear that its main purpose was to become God combine with Raijin-oh. This trope also applies to the MonsterOfTheWeek (Jaku Beasts) bad guys when Belzeb unleashes his own personal mecha Jaku Satan merges with it.Satan, in order to balance the odds.



* NearVillainVictory: Without this trope, there wouldn't be any tension in the show. However, this was played particularly well in the GrandFinale, where [[spoiler: Belzeb managed to take down God Raijin-oh using his upgraded Jaku Satan, and for once broke up God Raijin-oh into its individual components, with Belzeb about to destroy Ken-oh (And Jin by extension). Its only the collective willpower of the pilots that kept them fighting, allowing Jin an opportunity to stab Jaku Satan with its own sword, narrowly beating it]].



* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Each monster of the week gradually became more difficult to defeat, and they themselves gained a mid-season upgrade through combining with Jaku Satan, to counter Raijin-oh's MidSeasonUpgrade. This got to the point where late episodes had God Raijin-oh needing outside help to overcome the odds. Compare this to the first few episodes where Raijin-oh alone could handle the enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: The TV series had the titular mecha struggling to beat a single MonsterOfTheWeek. The OVA sequel features all the previous MonsterOfTheWeek returning to fight. If you guessed that Raijin-oh was cutting them down one by one with ease, you're right.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasticVoyagePlot: An episode features a shrunken Raijin-oh and Jaku Satan fighting inside Shinoda's body.


Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: The last 3-4 episodes. [[spoiler: The Akudamas that created the MonsterOfTheWeek are completely destroyed, BiggerBad Warusar was destroyed, Taida was exiled to Earth, and BigBad Belzeb accepted his own defeat and retreated]].
** Subverted upon the release of the OVA sequel, albeit on a less grand scale.
