Super Combining Magical Robot Ginguiser (Chogattai Majutsu Robot Ginguiser) is a Super Robot anime about four circus kids (Gorou, Torajirou, Santa and Michi) who each pilot 3 magic powered robots (and a jet). With the help of its powers, they fight to protect the Earth from the Sazorian Empire, a race of brightly colored animal-human hybrids who plan to Take Over the World.
At first a rather generic and run-of-the-mill robot anime of the 70's, it would have been completely forgotten if it wasn't for its recent fame among the mecha community (mainly 4chan's /m/), where, due to its confusingly flashy and low budget visuals, the series has mutated into an eldritch abomination.
Provides examples of:
- Alternative Foreign Theme Song: Ginguiser was popular in Italy and had a completely different opening theme song; it was even been released on vinyl. Listen to it on YouTube.
- Combining Mecha: The Four Guisers can combine into God Ginguiser.
- Expressive Mask: Gorou's Guiser's face can probably change to match the pilot's expression.
- Humongous Mecha
- Magicians Are Wizards: Gorou is a stage magician who has actual magical powers and a Super Robot.
- Mind Screw: The transformations, and especially the God Ginguiser's combination sequence◊ are very... confusing, to say the least.
- Monster of the Week
- Something Completely Different: Was produced by Nippon Animation (with relative newcomer at the time Ashi Productions), who isn't exactly known for this kind of series.
- Super Robot: Purely magical, it doesn't get much more Super than this.
