It is two hundred years after the beginning of the Space Era, when human civilization on Earth began expanding into space. However, by the start of the 21st century, two meteors struck the planet, sending humanity into chaos. By the year 179 of the Space Era, secret technology, dubbed Extra-Over Technology, or EOT, was discovered by the Earth Federal Government within a third meteor that hit Earth in the Marquesas Islands of the South Pacific. Dr. Bian Zoldark, head of the EOTI Institute (Extra-Over Technological Investigative Institute), had evidence the creators of the EOT were heading to Earth, in order to reclaim it...or worse, invade the planet. In order to defend humanity from extraterrestrial threats, the government begins to research and develop humanoid mecha called Personal Troopers.
Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars is based on a popular series of Japanese video games from various different mecha shows like Gundam and other animes within that genre.Up until recently I had knowledge about this anime and took a chance on it and I am glad I did for its one amazing mecha show and the Gundam show that no one has ever heard of.
Plot: The story is about how the earth has advance technology into space with their space colonies and have made mobile suits by the name personal troopers. the world seems at peace however, with the threat of an alien race
which called themselves Aerogaters who threat the earth with their advance weaponry the likes the people of the world have never seen before.In addition, to this threat the earth federation government is about to be engage in civil war with other organizations who also want to save the earth from the alien invaders but plan to overthrow the precious regime in order to achieve this for the sake of peace.
Art: The artwork for this show is spectacular everything from the characters to the backgrounds are beautifully animated and the show combines both 2d animation with cgi for the mobile suits and they look great.The cgi of the show reminds me of the same animation that they do for the dynasty warriors gundam games for the ps3.
Sound:the voice acting for the show is great and all of the actors bring into the characters they are portraying.the music for this anime is excellent varies from classical music to rock to epic orchestra music for the space opera.
Characters: the characters are good and they all play out their roles that are given to them in the story and the characters from likable to unlikable and some characters have more development than others while other characters stay the same.
Enjoyment: I really enjoyed this show with its epic battles , music , characters. I also really liked the fact that the show actually has a main character who actually likes to pilot giant robots and actually wants to save the world without complaining about how he wishes he had a normal life like other mecha protagonists do.Also like the fact the show starts off simple about fighting alien invaders and then goes into the earth fighting against itself then coming together with the opposing forces that were against them before and now have to be united to put an end to the war with the alien threat.Some of the things I did not like were when a character dies you think they are dead but somehow come back to life. Also , at times the story has many characters which is hard to keep track sometimes and has a lot of things going on that the viewer needs to pay attention like most mecha animes in the same genre. But despite those flaws it is truly a great mecha anime to watch.
Overall: the show is great with its artwork , music , mobile suits , characters.This give this anime a try it might become one of your favorites.
Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars is an anime based on the "OG Universe", where all "Banpresto Originals" characters from various SRW games. Only a few of that characters were able to appear in this game, but the game developer, Banpresto, plans to add all Banpresto Original characters to its upcoming games.
Summarization of the Story: (I will try my best not to spoil everything from here)
It all began when Meteor 3 fell from Earth. The Meteor 3 contains Extra-Over-Technology (EOT), where it is used to power some super robots/real robots in the franchise. The Earth Federation Army (EFA) is a group which aims to protect
Earth and humanity from threats, both inside and outside the planet. It was when an alien group called the "Aerogaters" started invading Earth. Then the Antarctic Incident happened, where its aim is to have a peace treaty in both the EFA and the Aerogaters. The outcome result failed because the pilot of Granzon, Shu Shirakawa, started attacking both sides. After the Antarctic Incident is the declaration of Bian Zoldark, the commander of Divine Crusaders, declared war against EFA for a "reason". This sums everything up. Come to think of it, this is the first 5 stages of the game, so there's nothing wrong in summarizing everything up.
It's awesome to see them merge the teams from EFA into one episode. Of course, the story isn't that accurate, but the sense of it is still there. (And soon you'll find this non-canon to the SRW OG Verse, but just a "part" of it (explained in SRW OGs 2nd)
The robots that are drawn in this anime doesn't fit my taste. I would prefer how the robots are drawn in the SRW OG: The Inspectors (its sequel) rather in this franchise.
Two words: JAM Project.
Some lacked introduction/background history, but the way that characters became close to each other, and seeing them develop relationship between others is good.
I can't tell that I enjoyed, because I played the game and I knew which and what will come up next. The "final" boss of this franchise is what surprised me the most.
If you want to keep up from the events of this franchise, I recommend playing the game first before watching this anime, because some part of it is not accurate, and this timeline is NOT CANON
