Thousands of years ago, the people of the planet Campbell decided to
leave their planet and seek out new worlds to inhabit. One group, led by
the scientist Oreana, landed on Earth, but was delayed from their
mission. In the early 21st century, Oreana's group reawakens and begins
their plan to conquer the Earth. The only effective defense against the
Campbellians' giant bio-mechanical slave beasts is the
super-electromagnetic robot, Combattler V and its pilots.
The entire series follows the then-standard Monster of the Week format,
with the first season featuring Garuda sending various mecha to defeat
Combattler V. His tactics range from brute force to cunningness and
taking hostages. He even duels Hyouma in a sword fight with their feet
chained together; though just as Hyouma is about to kill him, he is
saved by Oreana. As the series moves on, his trust for Oreana lessens.
Garuda eventually discovers that he is in fact a cyborg, and uncovers a
robot specifically designed for him. In the final episode of the first
season, he defeats Oreana, and duels Combattler V, which eventually
leads to his defeat.
The second season features Empress Janelor and her generals Dungele and
Warchimedes. The way the second season is structured is quite similar to
that of the first, but involves more serious plot points such as the
taking of hostages and plots to kill the team. Eventually, the entire
base of the Campbellian empress is deployed, and only through the help
of the airborne Nanbara Connection Base is Combattler V able to destroy
it. However, Janelor manages to deploy an Earth Bomb which is supposed
to destroy the Earth. Notably, the team is not dispirited, but are quite
calm and instead happy for having the chance to fight to protect Earth.
