After a civil uprising, two girls surface from the sub-terra in a bid to escape from this secret world. Together, Chelsea and Ruri stumble upon Asagi Rumina, a man who becomes determined to protect them from those who would pursue the maiden of life. After a close encounter with death, Rumina learns that he must develop a skill of his own to keep his newfound friends safe, especially as it seems to be his responsibility to stop the impending doom rising to take over the planet’s surface.

In the 21st century, most of Tokyo lies in ruins due to a massive earthquake. The cause of the disaster was Shizuru Ozaki – a man who obtained a large amount of power and subsequently went mad. Since the time of the cataclysm, various individuals have gained possession of items called 'Caizer Stones', which grant them superhuman abilities. Now, Shizuru Ozaki is on the verge of losing his sanity once again, and this time he might destroy the entire world! Can Gowcaizer and the rest of those imbued with Caizer abilities find the strength to stop Ozaki and save the human race?
Ikkitousen and Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer are both examples of the 'high school fighting' genre, where high school students tap into above normal abilities and fight for domination. If you enjoyed the fight scenes of one series, you are likely to enjoy the same from the other.
Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?
When school girl Aya Iseshima intervenes in a street fight between a pretty shrine maiden and a busty air hostess, little does she know what trouble she's gotten herself into. Being forced to fight, Aya soon finds herself competing for the Platonic Heart - a prize that will grant your deepest desire. Failure means expulsion to the dark realm, and when original competitor and friend Miko goes missing, Aya finds herself battling against other unique martial artist to find out the truth behind the competition.
Martial arts, check. Boobs, check. Panty shots, check. There isn't much else to both Ikkitousen and Zettai Shougeki, even if they do have a thinly veiled plot that is quickly obscured by the obscene amount of fan service.
If you love action, and can laugh your way through one of these shows, you are sure to love the other.
