The story takes place on the planet Maris in the year 2387. Around this time, the Nozas started to genocidally kill all humans in order to lay eggs and reproduce on the planet. Three mysterious guns dubbed the "Zillion Weapon System" appear and three teens (JJ, Champ, and Apple) are chosen to wield them as the White Knights in order to fight back against the Nozas.

Join JJ and the White Nuts, as they seek to save the planet Marisa from the evil Noza with their Sega Light Phaser guns.

This Anime is your typical 80's sc-ifi filled with campy pervert humor decent and unique alien characters and a good soundtrack. I'm unsure if this show was made to support the Sega game of the same title, or if the game was made in response to the shows popularity at the time. But Sega's influence can been seen all over the show including OPA OPA.

If you remember what a Sega Master system is and you want to feel nostalgic for read more

I haven't watched much of this show, but I'm not really interested in watching more of it either...
The only interesting things about it is that there's a couple of Sega Master System games based on it, the show has cameos of Opa Opa from Fantasy Zone, the design of the Sega Light Phaser Gun for the Master System was based on the pistol from this show and the soundtrack is BLOODY AMAZING!

But other than that, well, I suppose the art is well-made... But the show itself is pretty 'meh...
You're only gonna get anything out of it if you're a huge Sega fan or if you read more
