Salamander as most people probably don't know is a game series related to Gradius, a series people might know. The basic premise of this anime is lifted from the Salamander game. Basically you have four pilots unrelated to the game that have to save their world from the Bacterians that are going to turn it into yet another new home for them. The plot is pretty thin and most of the episodes are talking and flying around in the Vic Vipers to shoot stuff. Just like a game. However it does flesh out some of the questions people might have had about why they are read more

Not your everyday space opera anime to watch, and most ppl these days don´t even know this one for sure. I think there was an computergame years ago for this on a platform but ok, for a short 3/part ova this is quitr enjoyable but the animation is average, good colours though. The story in the biginning can be a bit predictable , but i does´nt turn out the way u expect the further it develops with a small suprise.Cheaper mecha-a-la-macross style wich was no problem for me , good spacefights and nice opera background music, no spoiled charachters here cus each has an interesting read more
