I've seen that this series is regularly insulted by fans of the manga, regularly pointing out that it's a terrible adaptation and that it was badly received. This is a terribly false Western idea. Getter Robot Go was succesful enough to have 50 episodes. The series generated several toy figures and CDs, without counting that the theme songs are also republished in several collections. And the series was released in home video without issues, something that a badly received series normally doesn't have. The problem is that a lot of people in the Western world think that this was meant to be a manga adaptation, which is not correcct. The anime is really a remake and it's the same thing as with God Mazinger: a different product based on the same concept, both focused on different market segments. The manga and the anime have different characters. The anime was never supposed to be be an adaptation or to be closely tied to the manga, at least not to the version published in the Shonen Magazine, the one that most people think is the original manga, which is truly incorrect, because it's the same case as with Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger and the majority of other super robot series created by Nagai, and also because the very first Getter Robot Go manga was published in the children's magazine TV-kun and drawn by Tatsuo Yasuda. And really, the manga was focused on a size-wise smaller market than the market for the anime.
I think it's quite unfair to say that the anime wasn't well received because the facts do not support this position. This negative vision, however, will be the perception that you will get after reading most articles in English and even some in other languages, going so far as to say that the manga follows the continuity of the original TV series, which, again, is not true. The manga follows the continuity of the manga, it's just that the originals Getter Robot and Getter Robot G manga are similar to the TV series to be easily confused.
I'm under the impression that many people believe this because the Super Robot Taisen video games chose to follow the manga instead of the anime, which is a logical decision since the anime does not follow the continuity of the previous anime and it would be difficult to explain the differences in the game with the other Getter. It really irritates me when people start sying that the anime is a total perversion of the manga because this simply is not true. The anime and manga were always meant to be different and the anime was not a failure, like many say. It's just that most fans of the original series prefer the manga because it's a sequel instead of a remake.
In any case, about the series, some may have noticed that it was the anime with which Toei and Nagai began to work together again. In fact, the series originally was supposed to be a remake of Mazinger Z. You will probably notice some similarities between the robot and Mazinger Z. The story follows the same plot like most other super robot series: the evil enemy, Randow, tries to conquer the Earth. Getter Robot is the only defense against the evil genius. You will also notice that the robot is not referred as Getter Robot Go. This is because, within the story, it is Getter Robot (remember, this is a remake, not a sequel). For some time, finding this series in the West wasn't easy, since most hardcore fans of super robots, who are also normally the main rippers, just hated it because they like the manga more. Nowadays that's not the case. I can say that at least it is interesting and it is not as bad as many might want you to believe. Take it for what it is: a Getter Robot remake, not a sequel, planned for the mainstream public instead of the niche of hardcore super robot fans, and you will enjoy it more. I would say that, in some aspects, it is superior to God Mazinger and Psycho Armor Govarian.
