Le Deus is basically about the main character, Riot, trying to find a source of unlimited power called Rido before the villain Kaiser can. Along the way, Riot and his companions clash with Kaiser's troops in both mecha and hand to hand combat.

It's like they had a checklist of every cliche of a 1980's anime, and just went down the list. Post apocalyptic world with a mixture of sci-fi and fantasy elements? Check. Giant robots? Check. Viewer-insert hero character that pilots the robot? Check. Cute, loyal sidekick girls that follow viewer-insert hero around? Double-check.

Although, if you jumble a whole bunch of cliches together, ...
