2035 A.D. The heads of ancient giant idols were excavated all over the world. Using those twelve stones statues, Humanity had barely overcome the threat of extinction called the "Equatorial Winter". But the stone statues had forced Humanity to construct colossal suits of armor as their bodies and demanded that the humans fight each other.

In the future, after the "Equatorial Winter", 12 idol heads of 12 Gods called out for humans to make them body and armor with which to fight. Each country that had retrieved an idol answered their call and the UN set up the "Wise World War" for them to fight in. This story follows one boy who is "called" to become tha pilot of a mech a.k.a. Gigantic of Japan which holds a idol head of one of the Gods.

This review contains spoilers. I'll try to keep from spoiling the final arc too much, however.

If giant robots is your thing, this is not a bad concept. The Greek pantheon appears in modern times scattered to the four corners of the earth (because Reasons™), and demand that the people give them weapons and armor and two humans to operate their new robotic bodies so that they can duel one another in single combat. They call this the "Wisest World War", and while I would've preferred that some world leaders settle their differences in a Roman-style coliseum complete with lions, I suppose this beats nuclear weapons.

Mixed Feelings
The Good:
- Great art style.
- The cell shading is some of the best I've seen in a tv series.
- A wide variety of mecha designs kept the series interesting.
- Battles between cell-shaded mechas = awesome.

The Bad:
- Plot progression is very slow. It was a struggle to watch more than 2 episodes in one sitting.
- Most of the series was devoted to presenting background stories of various mecha pilots/translators. Unfortunately, the lives of the these pilots and translators were boring. The fact that these flashbacks were presented DURING the mecha battles made things even worse.
