At the end of the 21st century, the discovery of a new energy source called "DG energy" (short for "divine grace energy") has revolutionized Earth's economy and allowed humanity to colonize space. However, when the initial expedition reaches Pluto, they are attacked by a mysterious, giant life-form known as "Nergal."

The Earth Alliance Army fights back by creating an "AG Unit" using ancient robot weapons known as the "G's Frame" which were excavated from archaeological sites all around the world. Girls with special qualities known as "Ancient Girls" can pilot these robots against the Nergal. However, the first AG Unit suffers heavy casualties in the Jupiter Trojan campaign, and the pilot of Unit 04, Minamiya Reiu, goes missing-in-action...

Years later, Minamiya Reika, the younger sister of Reiu, enlists with the AG Unit to search for her sister and to protect the Earth from the Nergal. A story of friendship, ancient robot weapons, and battles to the death with the Nergal ensues.

I kinda enjoyed it till the end

For story it is not best and it is just average and generic. too many plotholes and scenes that left unanswered. I like the concept of the story but I don't think that 12 episodes is enough so it feels rushed since many things are not explained but rather just insert it to the story. It is a sci-fi genre so explanations are pretty important since many things in the story don't have much background in real world and some just exist only in the story. Sometimes they will show you this things without a brief explanation then goes ...

I thought this show was entirely in mandarin and was going to skip it as soon as I saw the joysticks in the cockpits. My friend convinced me to tough it out. It got slightly better.

First four episodes are bad and can entirely be skipped.

Then apparently the writers got replaced or magically smarter and then it turns into a half decent mech show that reminds me of Star Trek with its use of Chekov's gun style sciencey stuff.

It plainly obvious that the tone of the show changes dramatically when you hit ep 5, because there are a number of tonal changes that happen. ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a pretty deeply uncomplicated series, and I mean this simultaneously as a compliment and a criticism.

I'm always up for a decent mecha anime, and this show does some things very right in that regard. I love the mechanical designs here, and they all feel so incredibly varied and unique in a way that I really, really like. They've all got clear concepts, and the designers clearly had some fun making them all their own distinct thing, while adding finer details that still made them feel like there's some consistency. The story is a fairly standard mecha premise; an alien invasion, a military ...
