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.

Either someone is real and says how horrible this anime is or people ironically call it a masterpiece and praise it as the best anime ever made and obviously one way is much more fun to talk about then the other. ...

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.
