Plot

When alien invaders known as the Die-Die Gang threaten peace on Earth, young wrestling champion Takeshi Yamato ventures out to find the ancient mystic Deva Datta, who trains him to become a "Warrior of Love" with the powers of the seven elements, and seven chakras, known as Rainbowman. Long ago, Deva Datta had sealed a deposed alien warlord named Dongolos in a stone pillar, and kept him captive with his mental energy, but now facing the end of his life, he knows he will soon escape and begin more ambitious attacks. The old yogi hopes to teach Takeshi what he needs to defeat them. With the help of his friend Dr. Omiya, Takeshi takes on the Die-Die Gang's vicious Devil Mecha using a powerful robot called Rainbow Seven, which was constructed under Deva Datta's advice. Takeshi navigates a world of alien espionage and giant robots in his pursuit of peace.
