Casshan: Robot Hunter, known in Japan simply as Casshern (キャシャーン Kyashān, romanized as Casshan in the official logo ?), is a 1993 OVA produced and animated by Tatsunoko Productions and Artmic. This series is based on Tatsunoko Productions' 1973 anime series Neo-Human Casshern. Casshan: Robot Hunter was originally released as a four-volume series in Japan. However, the American publishers edited the four episodes into a single feature film for its English-language debut in 1995.[1] In 2003, ADV Films re-released the four-episode series on DVD.

Plot

Enslaved by an army of rebellious super robots originally designed to help civilization avert a complete ecological cataclysm, mankind's only hope is Casshan, a legendary hero who wages a solitary war to defeat the NEOROIDS and restore the Earth to its rightful order. Ironically Casshan's father is the same scientist who engineered the race of super androids now threatening to destroy all of mankind. On a crusade to clear the name of his father, Casshan must sacrifice his own humanity in order to attain the powers he needs to defeat mankind's powerful enemies. But Casshan's power does not come without a price. Haunted by the memories of his murdered mother and forced to deal with a super robot that has absorbed and now manipulates the consciousness of his father, Casshan must put aside his own emotions and fight to preserve the survival of the human race.[2]
