Chō Kōsoku Galvion (超攻速ガルビオン aka Super High-Speed Galvion) is a 22 episode mecha anime that aired through February 3 to April 29, 1984. The series was supposed to last for 26 episodes, but was cut short due to bankruptcy of the main sponsor, Takatoku Toys. The 23rd episode was partially completed but later scrapped, and was never released. The final 22nd episode ended with a voice-over epilogue.


In the 23rd century, billionaire Midoriyama Rei creates a secret organization called Circus to combat a hidden group called Shadow that is taking over the world. When she can't find qualified pilots for Circus' main mecha, the Galvion, she cuts a deal with two convicts, Mu and Maya, to lead the fight against Shadow.


Chō Kōsoku Galvion features mecha designs[1] (of Gunbuster fame).


In 2013, Super High-Speed Galvion has finally received a DVD and Blu-Ray release[2], in Japan. Prior to that, footage of the anime was very scarce. Only one episode along with the opening scene was ever uploaded online, and shared on pirate websites.

A vinyl record with opening and ending theme songs was sold in 2017 on eBay[3] in November of 2017.
