In the year 3195, there was a war between an army of robots and the humans. When Shaian, a sentient combat armor, lost his companion in battle, he shut down until his internal systems spotted a new human.

If you love that style of gritty, garage, 80's mecha anime, this lost, unpolished gem might be right up your alley.
It's clear that they only had the production budget for a short one-shot, so the story seems to be very condensed. Still, I love this kind of stuff.

The live-action opening breaks the animation fourth wall, but years later it still sticks in my mind.

Dragon's Heaven is a junkyard, sci-fi mecha with some interesting art. It's from the the late 80's, but it honestly looks much older than it truly is. As it's junkyard sci-fi, a lot of the design-work revolves around designs that are much like the "Space Hulk" in "Warhammer". It's a style of sci-fi setting that generally isn't used too often, but it works fine here. Although it's quite different, the art as a whole has some pleasant charm that one might slowly get accustomed to. It doesn't last for long though, as the animation section of Dragon's Heaven is actually less than the entire 30-minute read more

Very similiar animation style. I only watched the raw version of Dragon's Heaven so it's hard to compare stories, but the mechanical design is so similiar and I feel if you like one, you should like the other. Hell, they are both only about an hour long so it's well worth the time to check them both out.

In both shows the main character finds and befriends a robot and they have adventures in a post-apocalyptic desert setting.
