Enslaved by an army of rebellious super-robots originally designed to help civilization avert a complete ecological cataclysm; mankind's only hope is CASSHAN; a legendary hero who wages a solitary war to defeat these NEOROIDS and restore the Earth to its rightful order. Ironically; Casshan's father is the same scientist who engineered the race of super androids now threatening to destroy all of mankind. On a crusade to clear the name of his father; Casshan must sacrifice his own humanity in order to attain the powers he needs to defeat mankind's powerful enemies. But Casshan's power does not come without a price. Haunted by the memories of his murdered mother and forced to deal with a super robot that has absorbed; and now manipulates; the consciousness of his father; Casshan must put aside his own emotions and fight to preserve the survival of the human race. An extraordinary tale of science fantasy and social relevance; CASSHAN is a story of man's best laid plans paving the way to potential destruction.
