When a bomb goes off and causes dimensions to bleed into each other, a future warring Earth finds that people and objects are left in the wrong dimension - objects which include `Decimators' (giant flying robots).
This 6 part series gives us well developed characters which sometimes seem a bit formulaic, but they thankfully tend to break free from many of the clichés we see in anime. The concept of the cities at war, and trying to gain control of the other-worldly massive robots to gain an advantage resonates well with the modern `real world'. The series seems touching at times, I don't want to provide a synopsis to give things away so I'll summarise...
In a nutshell: A good self contained mini-series (no need to invest in several more DVDs to see how this concludes), and at three hours you get enough time to become absorbed in the story, and to get a feel for the characters. The animation isn't the smoothest and the colours aren't the brightest - but when you're watching a dystopian future it doesn't really matter.
There's no option to watch individual episodes, so you might find yourself fast-forwarding through to where you have seen it to, there is a scene selection menu though and you can often pick up from there. There's no need to have seen the original "Orguss" series on which this is based to enjoy this - this is very much a standalone story. There are no special features of any interest - but that would probably have required including a second disk. But the story stands up and this is an enjoyable series that should appeal to fans of the anime "mecha" genre. This is isn't brainless action, we get a bit of political intrigue thrown in for good measure - oh and the theme tune is maybe a bit dated, but it's incredibly catchy!
