Earth is under threat of invasion from another dimension. Balzeb, Taldar, and their shapeshifting underlings, the Akudama (Evil Orbs), create part-cyborg monsters based on problems humankind has created for itself, like pollution, litter, and noise. There is a solution-three robots stored in a secret hangar that can combine to form the mighty fighting machine Raijin-Oh. When a pilot crashes Raijin-oh into an elementary school and is too badly hurt to carry on, he asks the pupils to take his place and become the Earth Defense Group. Once again, the government has no alternative but to put the safety of Earth in the hands of its children. Although 3 of them will be pilots, all 18 classmates have to learn to work together unselfishly for the good of all humanity. With such a large regular cast, one would expect most to be sidelined, but each of the regulars is featured strongly and has his or her own importance to the team and the story.

Another series created by Sunrise house pseudonym Hajime Yadate, Raijin-Oh follows in the tradition of giant-robot shows begun by Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Gigantor and Go Nagai's Mazinger Z, which Sunrise raised to the level of an art form in the late 1970s with shows for a slightly older audience, like Gundam. Sunrise was also responsible in no small part for the use of very young children-the tar-get audience for merchandising-as heroes in these shows, and the success of Raijin-Oh came shortly after the beginning of their long-running Brave Saga.
