5- Who is Jaspion?

Known in Japan as Kyojuu Tokusou Juspion, the series tells the story of a little human boy who survived the crash of a spaceship on the planet Edin. In the accident, the little one lost his parents, but was adopted by the prophet Edin, who calls him Jaspion.


When he grows up, Jaspion understands his mission in the fight against evil and receives equipment from his adoptive father to help him on his way.

4- What does “Jaspion” mean?

The name is not only different, but unpublished until the launch of the series. This is because he was created entirely from scratch for the show.

According to producer Susumu Yoshikawa, the original name is written “Juspion” and is the combination of the words “justice” (justice in English) and “champion” (champion in English), which would give the meaning of “Champion of Justice”.

But a curious fact is that the word “justice” said with a Japanese accent ends up having a “jastice” sound. Therefore, the final name became Jaspion.
