Houichi Kano, the Grandson of world famous inventor Hosuke Kano, is a student at Houwa High School in Musashino City. At the tenth anniversary of the first contact with the Riofaldians, the unveiling of an Elevator Ship designed for orbital transport between the Riofaldian home world and Earth is about to take place. However, this was just a ploy to take control of the Earth using their advanced technology and large Riofaldian work force on Earth to their advantage. It is now up to Houichi, with the help of Housuke, his school friend Akane and Isaka, to stop them and save Earth.

There is plenty of mecha mega-robot action, state of the art gunsuits, sexy shape-shifting androids and the reason why the manga is called Cannon God...

But the Riofaldian are one step ahead and they have a plan...

I stopped reading Gunsmith Cats right around when the lesbian brainwashing rapist became a major character. I wish I was making that up.

Anyway, the other way to describe Cannon God Exaxxion is that it is the anti-Evangelion. It's like this:

Ultimately, I would say that this was a plot focused manga with a simple but solid plot. It was an interesting plot line in terms of action and suspense, though it didn't really have much depth to it beyond some superficial elements. Character relationships were pretty weak overall, and there were some issues with consistency, such as it felt like it never properly decided what role they wanted "grandpa" to play, but overall the plot and characters were simple enough that it was a pretty enjoyable plot to read through, even if it never really got you invested in anything. It brought up a lot of points, such as heroes during war, racism, propaganda, ...
