Denkou Choujin Gridman (電光超人グリッドマン Denkō Chōjin Guriddoman), translated into English as "Gridman the Hyper Agent", is a Japanese tokusatsu series by Tsuburaya Productions. The show ran from 1993 to 1994. It was the inspiration and source material for DiC Entertainment's Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad. This would be Tsuburaya's last non-Ultra superhero production before Bio Planet WoO.

Shot on live video, Gridman was the first series by Tsuburaya Productions to utilize D-2 digital video for its special effects scenes, allowing for smoother slow-motion photography. Tsuburaya, having switched to digital techniques since then, would continue to use D-2 for all future productions.

Synopsis

Three computer-savvy kids, Naoto, Yuka and Ippei create their own video game superhero, but then discover it is possessed by an inter-dimensional police officer, Gridman. Pursuing an evil program called Khan Digifer, he merges with Naoto and fights Kahn Digifer's digitized monsters (created by social misfit Takeshi) in order to prevent the computerized demon from wreaking havoc on the Human World.
