Super Jetter

The first original SF hero anime without an original in the early days of Japanese TV anime. Popular writer Yasutaka Tsutsui has participated in the production from the planning stage, and various SF settings devised by his staff and others captivated the children at that time.

Jetter, a 30th-century time-patrol member, was both thrown into the era 1000 years ago in an accident chasing the villain Jaguar. Jetter collaborated with the director of the International Scientific Investigation Bureau, Saigo, who he met there, and teamed up with female photographer Kaoru Mizushima to fight for peace in the 20th century. A time stopper that stops the surrounding time for only 30 seconds, a gun paralyzer that shoots electric shocks, an anti-gravity belt that can fly in the sky, a rider that runs at Mach 15, a meteor, etc. That's it!
