Space Runaway Ideon

 

Ideon

 

Following the cancelation of Mobile Suit Gundam in 1980, director Yoshiyuki Tomino moved on to his next project - Space Runaway Ideon (aka Legendary Giant God Ideon). Originally airing on Japanese television from 1980-81, Ideon is one of Tomino's most famous non-Gundam series. Hundreds of years in the future, mankind has colonized many planets. On one of these planets, Solo, a group of archeologists and soldiers find the legendary robot Ideon and a powerful spaceship. Attacked by the humanoid aliens known as the Buff Clan, the humans, including hero Cosmo Yuki, flee from planet to planet under alien pursuit while trying to solve the mystery of the Ideon and the energy source behind it. Ideon's characters were designed by Tomonori Kogawa and its mecha was designed by Submarine. The show would eventually be canceled prematurely after 39 episodes. In 1982, two Ideon movies were released on a double bill. The first, A Contact, was a recap of the series. The second, Be Invoked, was an original feature that contained the true ending to the series. Although many of Tomino's works have been released in the U.S., Ideon hasn't (and isn't likely to, due to its age).
