Android Kikaider (人造人間キカイダー, Jinzō Ningen Kikaidā), also known as Kikaida, is a tokusatsu superhero TV series and the first to feature the superhero Kikaider. Created by Japanese manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori, the show was produced by Toei Company Ltd., and was broadcast in Japan on NET (now TV Asahi) from July 8, 1972, to May 5, 1973, with a total of 43 episodes.
This series was also one of the first tokusatsu to air in the United States (notably Hawaii), as Kikaider, Android of Justice.
A sinister organization launches a wave of audacious attacks in an attempt to gain world domination. Commanded by the evil Professor Gill, masked androids and fearsome DARK Destructoid monsters terrorize some innocent victims and wreak havoc throughout Japan. A solitary figure emerges to combat the menace. Whenever DARK attacks, a denim-clad road warrior appears, strumming a haunting refrain on his guitar. His name is Jiro, and a secret lies at the heart of his lonely existence. Jiro is a mechanical man. Vulnerable to Professor Gill's shrill flute wooing him to the DARK side, Jiro battles the evil menace by transforming into the mighty red-and-blue android known as... Kikaida.
