Giant Gorg (巨神ゴーグ Kyoshin Gorg) is a 1984 26-episode anime television series. Directed by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, produced by Sunrise and was broadcast in on TV Tokyo.


In 1990, an island emerged about two thousand kilometers south-east of the country of Samoa. It was named New Austral Island because of its close proximity to Austral Island. However, due to a secret concerning the new landmass, an organization called GAIL covered up its existence. Though absent from the map, it was still very much afloat. As part of the cover-up, Dr. Tagami, a university professor obsessed with the island, was killed.

In his will, he instructed his son, Yuu Tagami to meet with his former student, Dr. Wave, in New York. Shortly after he arrives, he, Dr. Wave, Doris (Dr. Wave’s sister), and their dog, Argos, are attacked by GAIL. They escape with the help of Captain, an old friend of Dr. Wave’s who Doris describes as “a bad guy.” With Captain’s help, they make their way to Austral Island, though not without trouble. There Yuu is saved by a seemingly, sentient robot called Gorg that the locals believe is the island’s protector. The story unfolds from there, as the Yuu, Gorg, and friends try to uncover the secrets of New Austral Island while fighting off the forces of GAIL.
