Remember to read at your own risk, since there are some minimal spoilers.

Episode Overview

Yomogi was on his way home back from school. Along the way, he encountered a mysterious man who is called as the Monster Tamer. His name is Gauma. One day, a powerful Kaiju (Japanese word for giant monsters) is using its powers to levitate any nearby objects and then tosses them right in the spot. Gauma uses a resonating relic on his bag, and called upon Dynazenon! Meanwhile, Yomogi’s friends were caught up in the battle, and they, together, battle against the Kaiju.

Episode Review

The first Episode was really a head-start. While it doesn’t really reveal on how did Kaijus exist, it has started with some few questions in mind. But then, this is just the first Episode! We might be knowing why do Kaijus exist, as well on what could be the secrets behind the giant robot, Dynazenon.

Dynazenon is actually a combined name. It is based from Dyna Dragon and God Zenon from the 1993 classic TV Series, Gridman The Hyper Agent (Denkou Choujin Gridman).

Below are some screenshots from the first Episode! Read along with the pictures in it!
