In 2010 a manned probe sent from the Earth to investigate Mars explodes in the Earth atmosphere and fragments which contain a DNA sample of what is thought to be a trace to possible Mars inhabitants falls on Japan.

That causes mutations all over Japan. People who are infected by the "virus" are called the Iseki-jin (relic persons). The AAST is founded, obtaining the cooperation of structure Doctor Hiroshi Hyuga they develop a suit, "Mars," as a trump card against the Iseki-jin.

The carrier of the suit obtains super powers, but only a few people, who are DNA compatible with the suit, are able to wear it. Takeru, the son of the doctor, was the first person able to wear it.

While the fragment which fell on Earth is being transported to a laboratory in the USA to be analyzed the transport gets attacked by the Iseki-jin and now Takeru has to fight and defend it for a final solution in this incident.

This is by far the anime medium's magnum opus. Mars of Destruction is the best animated movie I've seen in years, if not ever. In terms of science-fiction related media, this blows other greats such as Heinlein's works, Battlestar Galactica, and Neon Genesis Evangelion out of the water. Truly an experience I will never forget, and oh, what an experience it was!

Story: 10/10
This film is highly philosophical. I actually felt regret when the Big Bad Ancient Guy told Random Armored Cop Dude that the humans were the true invaders of Earth. This plot twist was stunning and, on the whole, thought-provoking. It was like something read more

Today I had a sudden insparation to write a review on the unfathomably glorious and unparalleled masterpiece that is mars of destruction. Here is a breakdown of why mars of destruction is THE most epic anime ever created.

The story is one of the best I have ever seen. Martians invading the Earth for absolutely no properly explained reason? Wonderful. The main protagonist, Takeru, having to fight these creatures and endure the pain brought about by the mars suit which he wears? So dramatic.

The two worst anime ever created, directed by the Ed Wood of anime. Both of them are absolutely hilarious to watch and will have you burst out laughing from scene to scene. This is the pinnacle of "so bad, it's good."
Both are insanely terrible "thriller" shows, in a way that it may be watched as comedy and provide much entertainment while watching with friends, only Pupa is more brutal. Be careful and watch with caution :)
