Synopsis

Blue Gender takes place in the not too distant future in a world where things have gone terribly wrong for humanity. Humans have been replaced at the top of the food chain by the Blue, a race of bug-like aliens that have colonized Earth and pushed humans aside. A space station, Second Earth, has been constructed as a safe haven for humans, with the hope of one day reclaiming the Earth once more.

Yuji Kaido was cryogenically frozen, having been suffering from a disease known as B-Cells. Once awakened, he joins a team of soldiers that have come to Earth to extract him. Unfortunately, nothing goes according to plan as they make their way back to Second Earth.

Yuji will have to deal with the horrors of fighting a bloody war as he and the fighters from Second Earth look to survive. Will they be able to win back Earth without losing their humanity?

Blue Gender is one of those series that a lot of people overlook or brush off for some reason. Many assume that it's just a depthless ripoff of Starship Troopers. However, in the process they're missing out on a substantially underrated and mature series that deserves more recognition.

Story: The initial idea, I must admit, isn't very original. Giant bugs VS. human beings has been done many times over, but this isn't the entire focus of Blue Gender. A variety of locations, plotlines and situations are introduced, the vast majority of them well developed. A wide range of issues related to maturation, bonding, dealing with read more

Bluge Gender is an anime that few people know about, or just over look due to the stroy about alien bugs taking over the earth and one man that is able to save it.

STORY- A man awakens 12-years after being put in a state of suspended animation to find that the earth has been over run by giant bugs know only as the Blue. He is resuced read more

Anime Review No.10
Blue Gender is an anime not very well known by many because of its dark and mature content which most anime fans stay’s away and especially because the anime is an old 90’s anime. Blue Gender is closely related to the popular western title “Starship Troopers” which I gladly enjoy during my childhood but Blue Gender is different because unlike the western title which is set in an interstellar and out of this world action battle “Blue Gender” took in a pass apocalyptic event where the earth human population is in near extinction by the menacing gigantic insects called “Blues”. The remaining humans read more

I've gotta admit that I'm surprised by the amount of enjoyment I had watching this series. Maybe it's because I didn't expect much heading into it, but like I said...very enjoyable.

For any of you who have seen the movie Starship Troopers, there are quite a few similar elements in Blue Gender. Despite our staggering intelligence and development, mankind is getting owned by some huge bug-like monsters. The difference here is that the bugs have already taken over Earth, forcing a small proportion of our population to flee to an orbiting space station. However, all hope is not lost since mankind is initiating an operation to read more
