Time for a dose of nostalgia. Golden Warrior Gold Lightan (黄金戦士ゴールド・ライタン), my favourite mecha anime when I was a wee lad growing up in the early 90s.
Gold Lightan is a golden mecha shaped in the form of a lighter who can enlarge itself to combat giant enemy mecha. Gold Lightan and his mecha buddies are sentient and do not require pilots like Gundams.
Most memorable is Gold Lightan’s trademark finishing move in which he stab into the enemy mecha’s body pulling out and smashing the enemy’s critical mechanism aka the heart.
The one I watched as a lad was dubbed in Chinese. How many of you watch this anime before as well? ^^;
