Sei Juushi Bismarck is the story of four space explorers stationed on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter. Their goal is to protect our solar system from the Deathcula imperium.Although not as popular as Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, an Americanized (and arguably Macekred) dub produced by World Events Productions, it is more sophisticated—and unlike Saber Rider, it does have action figure toys in its own country.
