Cult TV Essentials: Tokusou Robo Janperson

Throughout 1993 (for 50 episodes) Toei Company Limited’s Metal Hero Series brought a new hero to our TV screens – Janperson, a robotic detective who patrolled the streets of Tokyo and fought against three different underworld organizations who used super technology to subjugate the masses.

Differing from other Metal Heroes shows, Tokusou Robo Janperson did away with the monster-of-the-week format preferring ongoing story lines with criminal syndicates akin to television police dramas.
