JAM Project is a Japanese supergroup teaming the likes of Kageyama Hironobu, Endoh Masaaki, and Okui Masami--think of it as J-Rock's equivalent of the Avengers: an elite task force of the poets laureate of HOT-BLOODED ANIME HEROISM!!!

YouTuber PuppetChaos puts the proposition that JAM Project can make anything awesome to the test: here's the 1976 educational short, "Congruent Triangles" by Bruce Cornwell, set to "The Guardian" (the second Shin Mazinger opening theme):
