Logo: In a space environment with a gaseous planet below, we pan around the mascot of the company. After the panning stops, the mech points a gun at the camera and shoots, which makes a bright flash appear. The flash fades, and the robot is seen in the familial position. The US Manga Corps logo fly in letter by letter next to the mech.

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A very dramatic drumbeat plays in the background, accompanied by the appropriate sound effects for the gun and the flying in of the letters.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on later VHS releases and all DVD releases from the label.
