The story focuses on the exploits of Mars, a mysterious boy found on the uninhabited island Akinoshima by a news reporter. This classic manga series is by the same genius of Tetsujin 28 and Giant Robo.

Here we have 'Mars', an epochal manga composed during the years 1976 and 1977 by the undervalued mangaka Mitsuteru Yokoyama. Yokoyama founded universally popular themes such as the mecha, magi-shoujo, and super-powered ninja manga. A later example of Yokoyama's works, 'Mars' plays as a seemingly highly clichéd mecha sci-fi, portraying an alien boy who has lost his memory who must fight for both his life and the safety of earth, by opposing the "six gods"- alien relics designed to destroy the earth. In truth however, 'Mars' is actually an archetype, a progenitor of its type, and it's influence even extends to spawning three anime adaptations.
