The under-the-radar series gets a new lease on life!

Originally seeing a very under-the-radar release from Geneon Entertainment, Discotek Media previously picked up the rights to the 2004 incarnation of Tetsujin 28 this past summer. They moved quickly to get the home video release out for it as well as getting it through some digital purchase locations as well. Now, the series has found its way to RetroCrush for streaming where the complete series is available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles as well as the special, Morning Moon of Midday.

Plot concept: Shortly after pre-teen Shoutarou Kaneda discovers his late father’s legacy, a 60-foot-tall, 50-ton remote-controlled robot, he’s put in charge of it. Shoutarou accepts the V-controller and duty that his father intended for the giant robot, Tetsujin: to fight evil and keep the peace. As the youngest member of Interpol, Shoutarou’s adventures take him around the world, under the sea, through time, and the deepest reaches of space. His mentors are Dr. Shikishima, his father’s brilliant colleague, and Inspector Ohtsuka, the sometimes buffoonish chief Interpol liaison, but in someways, Shoutarou is closest to his giant avatar, Tetsujin. Together, they battle various menaces, from mad scientists to pirates to ninjas to international criminals, all with their own unique giant robots, but the deadliest villain that Shoutarou and Tetsujin build up to is the Space Demon King, an alien so powerful that he threatens to swallow up the Solar System.
