Yuuta Hibiki wakes up in the room of Rikka Takarada and notices two things: he has no memories, and he can hear a mysterious voice calling his name from a nearby room. On further inspection, he finds a robot—which introduces itself as Hyper Agent Gridman—behind the screen of an old computer. Much to Yuuta's surprise, Rikka cannot hear Gridman, nor can she see the ominous monsters looming over a thick fog as it envelopes the town outside. Another giant monster materializes in the city and proceeds to wreak havoc. Amidst the confusion, Yuuta is once again drawn to the old computer and merges with Gridman. Suddenly, he appears in the middle of the battle and is forced to fight the monster. Together with Rikka and fellow classmate Shou Utsumi, Yuuta forms the "Gridman Alliance" to defeat the monsters plaguing the city and find whoever is responsible for their emergence.

Really just watching for Rikka tbh
Not sure if I can recommend to those who don’t like tokusatsu, but I think Trigger has something here- can’t wait to see more.
I don’t know what to think
The direction is strong and lively, the characters instantly likeable, and 3DCG very off-putting. A mixed bag that gets most things right.
Was really worried that it’d take itself too seriously, but rest assured Gridman embraces its tokusatsu origins. Henshin!
Confirmed sleeper series of the season. TRIGGER duped us all to think it was a superhero show. NOPE. It’s way, way, way deeper! Must watch!
