Healthy Robo Daimidaler!

Daimidaler the Sound Robot is a manga created by Asaki Nakama and first published by Enterbrain from 2008 to 2012. A sequel, Daimidaler the Sound Robot OGS was serialized from 2013 to 2016. An Animated Adaptation was created for the spring 2014 anime season.

The world is beset by the evil forces of the penguin empire (basically a bunch of perverted guys in penguin onsies) who continuously attack cities in giant mecha (also penguin shaped) in order to steal the power of High-Ero particles. It falls to perverted and Hot-Blooded highschooler Kōichi Madanbashi to fight the penguin empire with the help of Daimidaler, A Super Robot that runs on Deus Sex Machina (sort of).

Yeah... it Makes Just as Much Sense in Context.

Daimidaler the Sound Robot provides examples of:

  • Affably Evil: The Penguins. They are generally pretty mellow, but they do mind the collateral damage and they will return your Porn Stash to its hiding place.
  • Berserk Button: Matayoshi and Kakazu understandably lose their cool over Kiriko and Shouma displaying their affection.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The Penguin Empire's teleporter will randomly lose something belonging to a living being. It saves Dennis' life after he was stung by a scorpion.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Matayoshi is prone to giving out snarky remarks, especially when it comes to Kiriko and Shouma's relationship.
  • Decoy Protagonist:
    • Subverted with Kouichi at the end of volume 10.
    • The anime adds an Action Prologue featuring Kiriko as the original pilot before getting replaced with Kōichi
  • Deus Sex Machina: Hi-Ero particles are made by a Factor's arousal.
  • Destructive Savior: Daimidaler is causing massive collateral damage during battle. And all exit points seem to be placed beneath buildings, parks and the like
    "Run away before Daimidaler arrives"
  • Didn't Think This Through: As Shouma found out, publicly displaying affection for your girlfriend with Hi-Ero particles in high school is not a good idea.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Daimidaler has one huge muscular arm and one tiny stick like arm and, well, this is an Ecchi series
  • Double Entendre:
    • How Professor Sewashiko views any line anyone says.
    • "The secret to fondling breasts is something you must grasp yourself."
  • Ecchi: This series primarily uses groping breasts as an energy source. So yeah.
  • Get a Room!: The way a lot of characters react to Kiriko and Shoma's public displays of affection.
  • Gratuitous English: All the Penguin soldiers have names like Dennis and Michael. Ritz, who is from America, randomly says things in English.
  • Humongous Mecha: Daimidaler, as well as the penguin empire mechs.
  • Insistent Terminology: It's a front tail, not a penis.
  • Karmic Transformation: Shouma gets transformed into a penguin, one of the enemies that he's fighting.
  • Make-Out Kids: Kiriko and Shoma just can't keep their hands off from each other. It's understandably upsetting Matayoshi and Kakazu. The former get so pissed by it that he mentally wants then to die, the latter hates it because it's ruining her promotion.
  • Meaningful Name: Daimidaler = 大淫ら = "Huge Slut" or "Great Slut".
  • Mid-Season Twist: Koichi's supposed death and Kyoko's capture in episode 6; episode 7 introduces two new characters, Kiriko and Shoma, who are the focus of the next few until Koichi and Kyoko return towards the end of the series.
  • Muggle–Mage Romance: Shouma Ameku, a regular high school student, has feelings for Kiriko Kiyuna, a girl who has Hi-Ero particles.
  • No More Lies: When Shouma gets captured by Ritz outside of the school grounds, Kiriko decides enough is enough and tells the truth about trying to keep her identity exposed. After that, she professes her love for Shouma.
  • Plot Twist:
    • Episode 10 has Shouma turning into a penguin, Kyouko waking from her coma and Kouichi returning from the penguin dimensionnote  in Daimidaler Type-2.
    • Episode 11 ends with the Japanese Military attacking Beauty Salon Prince's underground base in Type-3 Daimidalers.
    • Episode 12 has Ritz aiding both Daimidalers in their fight against the Military, Commander Six turns Shouma back into a human, and the Penguin Empire leaves Earth.
  • Portal Cut: The Penguin Empire's teleporter has the tendency to lose various things held by living beings (Memory, fluids, articles of clothing, etc).
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge:
    • Kyouko is on one to avenge her traumatized father. And you don't hurt penguins in front of Ritz, she will make you pay for it.
    • Kiriko goes on one after Shouma becomes a penguin and leaves her for the empire.
  • Super Robot
  • Shout-Out: Ritz's "Fiery Blast Penguin Thrust", to Daimos' Finishing Move. A penguin even manages to insert a line from the latter's OP: "Show them your karate skills!"
  • Take That!: A dub only line from Ritz in Episode 7 is one to Man of Steel and it's depiction of Superman as a Destructive Savior.
    Ritz: Unlike Superman, we'll take this fight to an abandoned area.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Chieko attempts to trick Shouma into breaking up with Kiriko by seducing him. It doesn't work.
  • Techno Babble: Some talk about using Chakra was made to justify the whole Humongous Mecha thing.
  • Thematic Theme Tune: The opening, Healthy Robo Daimidaler, in a deliberate throwback to hot-blooded 70's and 80's Super Robot openings.
  • Villain Teleportation: As of episode 8.
