Energetic Explosion Ganbaruger (元気爆発ガンバルガー Genki Bakuhatsu Ganbarugā?) is a 1992 anime television series created by Tomy and Sunrise. It is the second installment in the Eldran Series


When Kotarō and his father, Tōbei Kirigakure, accidentally rip apart a seal that kept the Demon King of the Great Demon World, Gokuaku, under wraps, Eldran appears once again to protect the Earth by entrusting the robot named Ganbaruger to Kotaro and his friends Rikiya and Yōsuke, who then become the Ganba Team. He then forces Gokuaku back down into the abyss and repairs the seal.

However, Gokuaku sent out one of his servants, the dark wizard Yaminorius III, from beyond the restored seal, to work to break the seal and turn the Earth into another part of the Great Demon World. To this end, he uses Demon World Beasts to cause chaos, which Ganbaruger protects the Earth from.

Kotarō's father, while battling Yaminorius III, is turned into a dog via a powerful magic curse. The three members of the Ganba Team also fall under this curse, but are not turned into dogs straight away; rather the curse will activate when their identities are revealed, and as such they must live as secret heroes until the Great Demon World is finally defeated.
