Scene 1: Japanese Drum Performance By Powerful Warrior


With the beautifully designed moving stages, the show starts with a performance of traditional Japanese drums "Taiko". Not just the sound of the drums, even the stages and costumes of the dancers are amazing! It is just like watching a Japanese festival (Matsuri) of robots!!


The music and drums make the theater hotter and hotter! Everyone is cheering and whistle blowing to show their support to the dancers on the floor!! Wow!



Near the end of scene 1, the first part is wrapped by traditional Japanese Ninja! The battle between two groups of ninja is exciting!!



What is next after the ninja battle? It is the traditional Japanese songs (Enka) time! What a great way to end the first part of the show!!

Scene 2: Battles of Giant Robots


Forest animals on earth Vs. Alien invaders

The peaceful forest on earth is invaded by the empire of evil robots, and that's how the story begins.......


We have the representative from the sky, the Golden Eagle!! Can he save the forest and animals?
His gorgeous and huge flapping wings highlight this part of the show!


Next is the insect representative! A huge and colorful spider and her warrior!



Even the warrior is so cute! How dare the evil alien robots invade this lovely forest!!


Next is the representative of sea, the great sharks and mermaid!!

The sharks just got the invader! He is chewing him with his sharp teeth!! Ouch......



The final battle is fought by the bosses of both sides. Representative of the forest is the big venomous snake! No matter how powerful the alien invaders are, they can't fight against this great creature on earth. Invaders are defeated and peace of forest is restored!


Scene 3: Dance Performance


Next is the colorful laser show!

No lights is used except the laser. Enjoy the great music and dance in the dark!



Personally I think this part of the show is great since laser lights is well used and choreography is nicely arranged. Other than robots, this dance performance is amazing too!

Scene 4: Robot Parade in the Future


A perfect ending of the show!

It is like a robot festival! On the floor, big and colorful robots are joining the dancers in this special parade! Just follow the music and enjoy yourself in the last part of the show!!


Live band and dancers are all dressed up nicely for the final scene!


With the great music and dance, I really enjoy myself from the beginning until the very end of this great robot show!!


Dance, Music, and Robots!


Before watching the robot show, I thought the show was just robot centered. However, it turns out it is a show mixed with robots, music, dance and many kinds of special effects. This is definitely a great entertainment show for everyone!
