Several months after a probe returning from Mars burns up during reentry, strange creatures dubbed "Ancients" begin to appear throughout Tokyo. Aggressive and dangerous, they cannot be killed with ordinary weapons. As scientists struggle to find the cause of their sudden appearance, the monsters wreak havoc across the world.

Humanity finds hope in the form of the MARS suit—a new weapon developed to take down these enemies. The suit, however, can only be worn by those with specific DNA. Enter Takeru Hinata, an ordinary teen with a troubled past and one of the few capable of piloting the only weapon against the Ancients. With the help of the AAST, a special police force established to defeat the dangerous creatures, the young man battles against demons both personal and global whilst trying to discover the true nature of Earth's new aggressors.

Mixed Feelings
Mars of Destruction's storytelling has the subtlety of a scorched, bleeding rectum or a tumultuous car alarm. "Plot refinement" is clearly a foreign concept to the creators of Mars of Destruction. Its premise is more derivative than a Syfy TV movie. Its characters are empty and lack many elements of characterization one requires in order to genuinely understand and distinguish them apart from each other. Honestly, they're so bad they made me appreciate the company and personality of torn cardboard (which is quite colorful and substantial compared to these characters). The writing is poorer than the typical Haitian family. It only took roughly four minutes after ...

[Death of an Anime Viewer]

Ivan was your average, everyday, normal viewer, he had just finished his latest anime series, and was searching for a new one to watch. While, reading the reviews of several shows on MAL, he came across the infamous Mars of Destruction.

He thought to himself, “This can’t possibly be true. Even the worst anime has one redeeming feature. I have to see this for myself.”

He immediately typed in the words “Mars of Destruction” in Google and ...
