It is a new dawn for mankind. The Shizuma Drive has brought clean, limitless energy and launched humanity into an age of prosperity. But even in this Eden of technology, there lurk the shadows of envy and greed, and Big Fire, a secret brotherhood, seeks to direct the world toward chaos!

The world is protected by the Experts of Justice, a team of operatives assembled from around the globe to stop the ultimate disaster of The Eternal Night, and the key to everything is the bravery of their newest member, Daisaku Kusama, and the great machine he commands - Giant Robo!
In a future to come humanity enjoys a new age of prosperity thanks to Dr. Shizuma's invention of a revolutionary renewable energy source: the Shizuma Drive. But this peace is threatened by Big Fire, a cabal seeking world domination. Against Big Fire the International Police Organisation dispatches a collection of superpowered warriors and martial artists, together with Daisaku Kusama, inheritor and master of Earth's most powerful robot, Giant Robo.
By capturing an abnormal Shizuma Drive which is essential to Big Fire's plans the IPO ignites a desperate conflict between the two groups. The coming battle will test Daisaku's resolve to the utmost, reveal the ghastly truth behind the creation of the Shizuma Drive, and bring human civilization to its knees!
Giant Robo is a character-driven adventure in a retro-futuristic setting, drawing on influences from opera, kung-fu cinema, wuxia stories and classic mecha anime. It incorporates characters from the works of the manga author Mitsuteru Yokoyama but it is designed to be a stand-alone story.
In the near future, a small team of scientists have solved the world’s energy problems with the Shizuma Device. While the development of the device was hampered by a chilling disaster, the device is now viewed as the ideal power supply; it is clean, recyclable, and can be used to power every device imaginable. However, the terrorist group Big Fire has found a way to recreate the disaster that was triggered during the item’s development, in every Shizuma Device around the world. It is up to InterPol, a group of justice specialists with extraordinary powers, to stop this nefarious plan and save the world with the help of their trump card known as Giant Robo and the young Kusama Daisaku, the crux of the robot’s power.
