The story takes place on the planet Maris in the year 2387. Around this time, the Nozas started to genocidally kill all humans in order to lay eggs and reproduce on the planet. Three mysterious guns dubbed the "Zillion Weapon System" appear and three teens (JJ, Champ, and Apple) are chosen to wield them as the White Knights in order to fight back against the Nozas.

Zillion is a show which takes the simplistic alien invasion story… and makes it even more simplistic. In all the shows I know where aliens invade humanity, this is the only one that has the last line of defence being… three hand pistols. I mean, really, no giant robots or spaceships or super bio-suits. Just three lasers that look and shoot as normal pistols. The premise alone is quite lame as the aliens have a million huge spaceships, a billion tanks and a trillion foot soldiers, their armours are impregnable to all other weapons, yet they are unable to beat three teenagers with some lasers. read more

For the record, though i´m used cheaper anime and a MAJOR oldskool anime collector, however this show was DOGSHIT!
i mean JAPAN!what the hell where u thinking back in 1987 to put this kind of tasteless heap of shit on t.v i really mean.... COME THE FUCK ON!!! u had hokuto no ken 2, Bubblegum crisis 2032, Dragon Quest, macross 2012 and Gundam wing to show off with. yes it was a negative infringement of my mind.
By story i would say it is unusual, but nevertheless dull, about when in the further future mankind has reach the potential to travel across stars read more

Ide and Zillonium are things that help humanity when humanity still can't completely understand or control them. Ide is a more complex legend come to life, an energy that is like a god, with absolute power and free will. Zillonium is only a mineral that helps the survival of any species. 
Tekkaman Blade use same plot as Zillion, aliens invade the human's home planet to breed. Most of the characters are identical but are little more childish in Zillion.

I think Tekkaman Blade is better because it's newer and have little more mature content than Zillion.
