(Entry in Clements and McCarthy "Anime Encyclopedia")
Classification -
Synopsis The people of the dying planet Palta choose Earth as their new home. The humans naturally object. Robin and his six super-powered friends: nurse-robot Lily, Wolf the sharp-shooter, Benkei the strong robot warrior, Bell the radar cat, the small know-it-all Professor, and Pegasus the transforming rocket form a heroic team to save the world. In the first episode there are two space battles with a scouting flying saucer. The struggle evidently continues in further episodes.
Review Reminiscent of Cyborg 009 whose creator Ishinomori had the original concept, but seems to have made even less use of a science adviser. The implausible script may amuse 21st century viewers in ways not originally intended.
