An ([[CrazyAwesome unholy]]) amalgamation of Wuxia, Superheroes, Creator/RichardWagner, [[HumongousMecha Mecha Anime]] and pure insanity, ''Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still'' is notable for being an early and rather impressive example of the MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, formed when director Yasuhiro (''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'') Imagawa was told that he couldn't use any of the supporting characters from the manga or TV versions of the ''Giant Robo'' story. Struck by inspiration, he instead decided to instead take characters from the rest of original creator Mitsuteru Yokoyama's work, including ''Babel II'', ''Manga/SallyTheWitch'', ''Anime/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', ''Akakage'' and many others. To add to the effect he decided to draw them all in Yokoyama's classic 1960s style, along with a [[{{Zeerust}} retro-futuristic world]] set in an alternate 1920s populated by {{Ninja}}, ancient Chinese warriors, [[BadassInANiceSuit Sharp Suited Businessmen]] and {{Badass Longcoat}}s walking side by side.

See also: ''Anime/ShinMazinger'', another great SuperRobot series by Yasuhiro Imagawa. Like GiantRobo, it is a revival of a classic series and involves heavy crossover from the [[GoNagai original artist's]] entire body of work. Alternatively, the 2004 ''Tetsujin 28" anime, also directed by Imagawa based on another famous Yokoyama story with similar design aesthetics, a few bits of RetroactiveRecognition (Kenji Murasame and the Black Ox most notably.

But history be damned, when somebody mentions Giant Robo today, they're not thinking of either of those. They're thinking of ''Giant Robo The Animation: The Day The Earth Stood Still'', one of the greatest - or at least the most completely ''[[CrazyAwesome insane]]'' - works to come out of the anime industry in the last 20 years.

But history be damned, when somebody mentions Giant Robo today, they're not thinking of either of those. They're those... Okay, some people still think of ''Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot'', but usually only if they grew up in TheSeventies. Nowadays, they're thinking of ''Giant Robo The Animation: The Day The Earth Stood Still'', one of the greatest - or at least the most completely ''[[CrazyAwesome insane]]'' - works to come out of the anime industry in the last 20 years.
