Original Opening

French Opening


Duke Fleed is a survivor of the Fleed Planet who is escaped to the Earth, onboard a mysterious “spaceship”, where is raised by Dr. Umon as his adoptive son, and known as Daisuke Umon. Years after his arrival, he’s faced with the threat of King Vega and his army, who want to conquer the Earth. With his friends Koji and Hikaru (and later his younger sister Maria Grace), Duke decides to fight back using his best weapon – the almighty Grendizer.

First of all, I’m not as old as the anime, in Quebec it got aired for the first time in 1978 and got a couple of re-run after. That being said, I will not lie to you, the only thing I actually remember from this anime is the opening, which I still listen mostly when I feel a bit nostalgic.

I will still suggest you to watch it if you can get you hand on it.
