Plot Summary: Yuta Hibiki awakens with amnesia and the ability see things that others cannot. He first encounters a Gridman in the reflection of his friend Rikka Takarada’s computer and it tells him to “Remember his calling,” but Yuta doesn’t understand what this means. Later, in the distance, he sees an extremely large monster but it doesn’t move. It’s only when Yuta gets to school that the two sightings make sense: a monster attacks and the hero Yuta saw in the computer screen pulls him within the computer and transforms Yuta into a giant hero named Gridman.

First Thoughts: AAAYYY!!!! First episode is actually decent to good!!!! Yeah, this is a bit of a slow start at first but it does serve as getting to know about the main Hibiki and wonder why the hell can he see the Gridman but others like his friend can’t. 2nd half tho….. THIS SHIT DEFINITELY KICKS IN!!!! And knowing that this was produced by a tonkatsu company Tsubaraya Productions, there is definitely some inspired toku stuff in there. Hell, I think you see Godzilla in there.

CONTINUE WEEKLY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and I really hope this will be good.
