Released in 1993, "Casshan: Robot Hunter"*, is a 4 part OAV re-telling of the older, 1970s anime "New Type Human, Casshan".

A young man must become Casshan, a humanoid machine, in order to save mankind from a machine his father built. Casshan’s father had created an android called, BK-1, in order to protect the Earth’s environment. The machine decided that the best course of action to complete its task was to wipe out mankind. BK-1 changed its name to Black King and covered the planet with robot armies. To restore his family’s honor, Casshan must defeat BK-1 and return the planet to mankind.

"Casshan" is an enjoyable anime, made by the same studio who brought us "Tekkaman / Teknoman". Maybe it’s because it brought back horrible memories of "Captain Planet", but I liked "Casshan" more before it made BK-1 eco-crazed.

*Thankfully, the studio thoughtfully put the "Casshan" Romanization on everything referring to this OVA, sparing English speakers everywhere from having to look at "ern" and pronounce it "ahn".
