The Robot Romance Trilogy (長浜ロマンロボシリーズ Nagahama Roman Robo Shirīzu, lit. Nagahama's Romance Robo Series)
were three Super Robot anime series created by "Saburo Yatsude" (a collective name for the staff at Toei) an
d directed by Tadao Nagahama from late 1976 through early 1979.

The trilogy was a co-production between Sunrise and Toei Company with Sunrise providing the animation work on their behalf. The series are notable for developing ideas from Brave Raideen (another Super Robot series that was aired in 1975), helping the Super Robot genre evolve, from series meant mainly to sell toys, with little to no plot or character development from episode to episode, into series capable of telling dramatic stories of human conflict and compassion.

Never has Philippine television and pop culture had a greater gift from the land of the rising sun than the Robot Romance Trilogy. Through the eyes of Filipinos, they were not only 70's anime shows, but part of our culture. How many anime shows scare a dictator president because of its rebellion theme anyway?

The trilogy started with Chōdenji Robo Combattler V in 1976 followed by Chōdenji Machine Voltes V in 1977 and ended with Tōshō Daimos in 1978. This was a new take on super robot shows as it produced much more in depth drama and relationship between friend and foe.
