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.
