official English synopsis said:
On a planet very similar to the earth... Here, the missile mechanoids started to have its own will and control, and were driving the human beings into serious danger.
Shaleen was the last "ICHIRIN-SHA (unicyclist)" in the world, traveling the world on his beat up motor unicycle. One day, when Shaleen was running from the attacks of the missile mechanoids, he stops by a ghost town and meets a mysterious girl who was constantly targeted by the mechanoids. She was a girl who had chosen to live alone in the ghost town, trying to avoid any others from getting involved. The girl unwelcomed his company too, but Shaleen's pushing character gradually makes her give in little by little.
However, this change of the girl's emotion takes effect on the missile mechanoids, and enlarges them at an enormous size.
What is the mystery of the girl's power?
What will become of the battle against the gigantic missile mechanoids?
This is a thrilling, action-fantasy depicting the soul interactions between Shaleen and the mysterious girl, inside a unique and majestic world.

Exciting pilot! Shaleen, the unicyclist, is voiced by Hamada Kenji, and the girl is Hirohashi Ryou.

That promo was better than anything from the past season. A full movie should be pretty cool.

Looks like a "style over substance" anime to me, but that isn't always a bad thing.

I expect it to be a fun watch without setting any new standards in terms of storytelling, so this will be a "light" watch for me.

This is a 'have to watch' for me! The plot sounds interesting and the art seems great too so I can't wait!!!:D

"He is just an ordinary gamer, who doesn't even know about the crisis of the city."

*has King Gainer flashbacks*. That aside, this sounds fairly interesting, although I'd like to see some more character/mecha desgins. Hopefully we'll have a PV or something before TAF is over.

The art is kind of 90s, I approve. Definitely going to be watching out for this one.

Edit: Added. Now MAL can remember it for me, lol
