The planet Libertia was once known as “the planet of death”, until humanity built three giant mirrors and created what seemed like an ideal land. It is on this planet that Professor Grace and his granddaughter Alcia live peacefully… until their home is attacked by Guild soldiers looking for the professor and for Legaciam – a special Armor that can resist extreme heat, allowing it to go to areas where humans would not survive normally. Alcia, who was at the time piloting Legaciam in order to help her grandfather with the testing, manages to get away… barely. But the Guild is determined to get Legaciam by any means necessary…

The mechanical designs are reminiscent of Dunbine, or the much later Brain Powered, and the combat sequences are, while formulaic, still exciting due to some interesting choreography.

A kinda fun 80s mech anime OVA. Style over substance, but only sorta.


The story, as you can tell from the synopsis of the plot, takes place on a fairly interesting world where radiation from the sun is a constant threat, giving the whole movie a bit of a Mad Max vibe.
As the plot continues we learn more and more about the world, along with backstories of quite a few character. By the end I found myself actually caring about a few of them and, though most remain fairly one dimensional (the main brother and sister in particular have nothing interesting going for them) some ...

Mixed Feelings
It's not a bad little show. I mean, it does have some good points to it, such as the decent artwork and some likeable characters (even if the "cute shy girl who is the granddaughter of the mecha's creator and the only one who can pilot it" is way to cliched), and a decent story set-up.

But, on the flip side, there also really isn't any "there" there. It's just one of many in a sea of mecha anime that flooded the marketplace during this time, all with very slightly different back stories or slightly different designs. ...
