Synopsis

In A.D. 2031, humans are enjoying a prosperous existence until strange life forms called Hardians appear. They suddenly begin to multiply and assault the human population. As a countermeasure, mankind organizes the N.I.D.F. to investigate the Hardians and protect themselves.

A fighter pilot, Aiba Shu, begins to become involved in the battle against the lifeforms. Rurika Yuno, one of Earth's foremost scientists, investigates the Hardians and hears rumors about the "Book of a Dead Man." What is the secret of this tome, and what relation does it have to the Hardians?

Now, the fight for mankind's survival begins.

This anime is just plain bad. It had potential, but in the end it's just disappointing. The only reason why I even managed to finish the whole thing was because things didn't become clear until near the very end. If the plot was written differently, it would've been more successful ending at around maybe 12 episode. [spoiler] Because the whole time it was about Aiba taking revenge for Yuno and killing most of his revived friends. The conflict would've end a lot faster if Kyoka,the commander of the NIDF, tries to improvise when the book of dead was used on Aiba by working with him read more

✪ Genre: action (gunfights, swordplay), adventure, mecha (robots, power suits) military, sci-fi (alien, post-apocalyptic), seinen with some elements of romance and dementia


✔Positive Aspects✔

◧ An interesting rehashing of a very familiar concept: an invasion of Earth by an alien genus which is incredibly heterogeneous since it is comprised of countless species, all united in their quest to wipe humanity off the map.

◧ Pretty cool soundtrack: a decent and large selection of songs for all kinds of different scenes, mostly revolving around j-pop, electropop, and techno.

◧ I very much liked the pace of the plot, at least, up until the 19th episode, where the series started read more

Preliminary
I highly recommend it.

Now before I continue, there were only 19 episodes subbed for this series and most of the resulting subs were either sub-par to horrible to acceptable. This was due to having 3 different fansubs from the superb subs from the original fansub group (MENCLAVE) to the infamously "horrible" fansub group Mendoan.When I state "horrible', I meant the English composition that one will read when watching the series from episodes 8 onwards.

Another note: After episode 7, Bandai Visual bought the rights and any viewer of the series will no doubt, notice how inferior the subs got once the announcement was made read more

Preliminary
This is one of the better latest mecha i have seen. It's derected by Yasuchika Nagaoka and Eiichi Sato, and produced by Aniplex and Satelight. It started in 2007 on TV Tokyo and has 26 episodes.

The music is ok and it has 2D+3D graphics like most of the recent mecha anime. Nice!

The story is set in the future,year A.D. 2031. Human race is enjoying a prosperous existence until strange life forms called Hadeans appear. Huge swarms of strange bugs and colosal monsters.

They suddenly begin to multiply and assault the human population. As a countermeasure, mankind organizes the Neo International Defense Force (N.I.D.F.) to read more
