It began in 1945, at the end of the Pacific War. Alien invaders filled the earth's Skies, and mankind was forced to confront an unprecedented threat. For the first time in human history, people of all cultures came together under one banner.

This war has now been raging for over fifty years. Countless lives have been lost, and the Japanese military is now forced to rely on young people such as Atsushi Hayami and his high school class, also known as Unit 5121. This new generation fearlessly struggles on with the aid of the HWT humanoid combat machines and the devastating PBE bomb.

Story: 6 (Great action horrible drama)
Art: 7 (Most of the money went into the mech battles)
Sound: 4 (without the mecha, this would have been a zero)
Character: 3 (Never seen such a large group i could care less)
Enjoyment: 5 (it was both fun and agonizing at the same time)
Overall: 25/50 = 5.0 (watch this as one of your last resorts)

Don't be fooled by the cool mecha action you get from episode one. Thats just there to draw you in to the story. As you keep watching, you will come to realize it's all a ploy. A ploy to lure you into a romantic comedy read more

Gunparade March is a unique anime.

The story based of the manga by the same name is great. Gunaparde takes place in a alternate future when after the end of WWII in 1945 a alien race appears on the earth and begins to kill of humans. Fast forward 54 years to 1999 humans are still fighting. The story takes place in Japan one of the last remaining strongholds on the planet. The story focuses on the 5121st Platoon who are made up mainly of young teenagers who were drafted.

The characters were great adding life and emotion to the anime. I personally read more

Gunparade is one of the best series I've seen.
although the art, sound and animation aren't top notch, the storyline compensates for that and makes this a one-of-a-kind.

No other series i watched delivered the same atmosphere this one has - dark,
post apocalyptic, yet somehow different. It's not something explainable, just watch it and you'll understand.

This series does have all sorts of anime cliches and the ending is visible from miles away, but it is still quite interesting to learn about who the characters are, witness their development(though very minor)
and slowly understand how exactly the world got to what it is in the series-how read more
