The story takes place in the future where war machines from evil mechanical alien empire Garufa finally reaches Earth. In order to protect earth, an Earth defense organization called GEAR (Guard Earth and Advanced Reconnaissance) is formed. GEAR has an ultimate weapon in a form of war mecha, GEAR Fighter Dendoh, which is piloted by two elementary school students, namely Kusanagi Hokuto and Izumo Ginga. Can the friendship between Hokuto and Ginga unleashed the full potential power of Dendoh in order to fight Garufa?
In lieu of no reviews... this might be seen as yet another mecha anime, but it could be sweet... the way there's a motherly figure, the friendship, and the reversal of an 'evil' entity, while the position reverses for a brotherly figure... it is not quite as deeply philosophical as Evangelion, but it has a certain panache and an allure that can be both colourful and dark. It explores human relationships, yet is intimate with technology and lifeless (?) machines.
Overall, it may be slightly repetitious and a classical shounen mecha, its music not outstanding, but passable, yet it can be charming and at times moving.
There is some character development, but also 'technicians' with not much of a backstory...
Ultimately, it does have a potentially interesting storyline.
