Plot

As the central figure of “ARK Project”, genius robotics expert Nobuhiko Komyoji creates robots to solve seemingly intractable problems with the goal of making life better and more peaceful for mankind. Komyoji is convinced that the robot he's building should have a "conscience circuit", but this decision leads to fierce polarization with fellow scientist Gilbert Kanzaki.

Soon, Komyoji is killed in an accident and a mysterious unit of special forces soldiers move in to steal all of the research data he left behind with his young son Masaru. Jiro (aka Kikaider), the android Komyoji created with a partially completed conscience circuit, defends Masaru and his older sister Mitsuko. Mitusko forms an emotional bond with Jiro, but he's soon attacked by a powerful and malevolent android called Hakaider.
