Synopsis

In A.D. 2031, humans are enjoying a prosperous existence until strange life forms called Hardians appear. They suddenly begin to multiply and assault the human population. As a countermeasure, mankind organizes the N.I.D.F. to investigate the Hardians and protect themselves.

A fighter pilot, Aiba Shu, begins to become involved in the battle against the lifeforms. Rurika Yuno, one of Earth's foremost scientists, investigates the Hardians and hears rumors about the "Book of a Dead Man." What is the secret of this tome, and what relation does it have to the Hardians?

Now, the fight for mankind's survival begins.

Well then before i begin,there is something you should know... This series has only 19 episode English subbed only. I have included a short summary of episode 20-26 to the best of my ability and please forgive me if the information isn't 100% correct.

The beginning is very face past and really hooks you in. The 4th episode is a recap of the 3 fast pace episode. If you survive that then your in for somewhat of a treat.
The storyline does have its fascinating points. If the author expanded the story, i can almost guarantee this anime could've been very popular. It has action, read more

I highly recommend it.

Now before I continue, there were only 19 episodes subbed for this series and most of the resulting subs were either sub-par to horrible to acceptable. This was due to having 3 different fansubs from the superb subs from the original fansub group (MENCLAVE) to the infamously "horrible" fansub group Mendoan.When I state "horrible', I meant the English composition that one will read when watching the series from episodes 8 onwards.

Another note: After episode 7, Bandai Visual bought the rights and any viewer of the series will no doubt, notice how inferior the subs got once the announcement was made read more

Recommendations

The characters in both series (I mean Souma Toru and Shu Aiba) are contained up they get their freedom in exchange for fighting against evil. Although the situations are different, Toru is a hacker who acquires a vindictive motive while Shu wants to see Yuno (and regain your memory)
Also both have a reality with many difficulties and some devastated.
Baldr Force Exe Resolution is more concise, with a better story and plot and with dramatic aggregates.
Both series begin showing an apocalypse where aliens bodies brutally attack to mankind, showing bloody scenes with some mechas involved.
The beginning of both animes is intense, the first 3 episodes in the case of the Kiss Dum and in the case of MUV the first two.
The difference is that after those intense episodes Kiss Dum maintains an acceptable story and action, while MUV change to harem with very little of military aspect.
Furthermore, both male protagonists has a history with their 'female heads'
