Few weeks back, I stumbled upon a video on Len-Vesper’s blog where I saw something very nostalgic and familiar. I am referring to Golden Warrior Gold Lightan (黄金戦士ゴールド・ライタン), one of my favourite animes when I was a little boy in the early 90s.
Gold Lightan is a golden mecha shaped in the form of a lighter. It can transform itself into a giant mecha when combating enemy mecha. Gold Lightan and his mecha buddies are sentient and do not require pilots.
Most memorable is Gold Lightan’s trademark move in which he stab into the enemy mecha’s body pulling out and smashing the enemy’s critical mechanism.
The one I watched as a lad was dubbed in Chinese. The OP was in Chinese as well. I only managed to find the Japanese OP which you may watch here.
Special thanks to Len-Vesper for telling me the English name since I only remember the Chinese name. How many of you watch this anime before as well? ^^;
