In the year 1996, the space race between the US and the Soviet Union has spread to Mars. The Cold War still continues and there is an ever-increasing chance of full scale war between the two super powers. Meanwhile, on Mars, the student-run "Cosmic Culture Club" arrives at a UN base; but before the kids get a chance to settle in they find themselves under attack from an unknown force using giant mecha! The UN base is quickly laid to ashes and only a handful of survivors remain, but the attack is repelled thanks to the efforts of a renegade mech pilot, Eiji. He is a defector from a race called the Grados and he comes with a warning: the Grados are coming to destroy humanity! He has stolen their most powerful mecha, the SPT-LZ-00X Layzner, and offers to help Earth – that is, if he can convince the people he just saved that he is telling the truth!
If you enjoy the old mecha shows it might be interesting to watch Blue Comet SPT Layzner and Dancougar: Requiem for Victims. The animation style of each has that old feel, and the same clumsy mecha. This recommendation is based simply on the matter of look & feel.
