Synopsis

As the sole survivor from a squad that was sacrificed and hung out as scapegoats for embezzlement of military resources at the end of the 100 years war, Mellowlink Arity is out for revenge.

Carrying the dogtags of his deceased comrades and armed with a dated anti AT rifle, he swears to hunt down and exact revenge on the corrupt officers that betrayed his squad, and maybe even uncover the truth behind the plot as well.

For any fan of Ryosuke Takahashi's Armored Trooper Votoms franchise, you'll feel right at home with this series. It's set in the same world, and Chirico even makes a short cameo as well, though their paths never really intertwine.

As a revenge tale, you shouldn't expect anything profound from the plot. Simplicity is the name of the game here, so the setup is fairly obvious...you get pieces of info along Mellowlink's journey that unveil why he's hunting down these high-ranked officers.

The main draw of the show, IMO, is the clever, tactical ways in which Mellow dispatches his enemies. Whether it's using misdirection ploys or baiting pursuers read more

This is an retro-mecha series.

It's not outstanding or a classic, but you will not be disappointed if you watch it.
If you are a mecha fan or more specifically Votom fan this is definitely for you. since its a votom spin-off

I personally really like the mechs (A.T's). Even though the main character dosn't use one. He uses a anti-AT rifle to take out the mechs the "bad guys" use.
The animation is typical of the 80's. character animation isn't that strong. BUT some of the still frames the use for paning is pieces of art.
I'm not sure who animated the series, but it sure resembles the read more
