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.

A fair warning to new anime watchers. You will be recommended to watch this.
Please do not. First it is a really heavy piece to start with, second you will not appreciate the amount of greatness this anime shows in art and sound. You should have a profund knowledge of the history and making of anime.

This is a psychological anime driving deep into the consequences on going to unfamiliar environments, and how its curses could spread into our society. The characters are struck by different personal issues showing affect during the show. It is not a mecha anime, please don't watch it for that.

For me this ...

i don't even know what the fuck to say about this show it was absolutely terrible and i wasted 19 minutes of my precious day watching this piece of shit, animation is garbage, sound is shit, only reason i'm rating it a two is because it is a slight improvement from their other shit show, this sent one of my friends jumping off a 10 story building, i cried, i don't know what to do with my life anymore, my other friend slowly peeled all of their skin off with a potato peeler which all happened because of this god forsaken anime.
