Mars is discovered on a forming volcano island, Heisei; a man with no memory. In reality, Mars is from outer space, and is supposed to gather information to decide whether Earth should be destroyed or not. Along with the giant robot Gaia, and his mysterious images of a woman urging him not to destroy the world, Mars decides to fight for Earth rather than destroy it, even if it means fighting his own kind. But if Mars is killed, Gaia will explode, destroying Earth along with it.

After finding the motivation recently, I finally sat down and watched this, and to spice things up, I did it while reading the manga side-by-side.

First, some background; the original five-volume manga was released in 1976 by Mitsuteru Yokoama - more on him in a bit - and it might surprise you to learn that this is actually the THIRD Mars ...
