As society rises from the ashes of war, cybernetically augmented arena fighters battle for fame and fortune... or die trying.

It's the 19th century, and the world has entered the Era of Rebirth, recovering from the devastating flames of war. The sport of mechanical martial arts has galvanized the nations. Cybernetically augmented fighters turn their blood into steam and their bodies into brutal fighting—and killing—machines.

Young Levius is one of those arena battlers, hell-bent on winning in order to simply survive.

This is one of those short anime that kept me glued to the screen.

The story made me feel for the characters, and whoever practiced any sort of combat sports knows about the feelings portrayed in the anime: comradery, the will to keep pushing and becoming better.

Mediocre anime? The reviews do not do it justice.

I am not going to lie to you, if I end up watching this series until the end it was for the mere fact of being a fan of the "Deportivo" genre.
The reality is that this adaptation does not propose to be anything innovative within the genre. What's more, I see it as a "copy" or reference to Megalo Box, which is really very similar, although I really couldn't say which one was created first. Returning to this Anime, we must clarify that its Rhythm of history and development They were not very clear. First, I advanced relatively slowly until giving us ...

Preliminary (1/12 eps)
This review is spoiler free!
A while back, I saw the trailer when it was first released on Netflix. The trailer didn't hook me at all. Part of it was due to the CGI style, which isn't my thing. To each their own, and I know that CGI helps a lot in animating action and fight sequences, so I don't hold it against the show itself.

My poor rating for the anime is due to me forgetting it existed and later picking up the Deluxe manga (has all three volumes in it) and finding the manga to be absolutely amazing. Note that at this time I still ...
