In the year 2010 the Mars Exploration Vessel, returning to tell its secrets, fell to the Earth in a fiery blaze. Several months later, strange creatures known as Ancients walk the streets of Tokyo, brutally murdering anyone who gets in their way. In response to these incidents, the AAST – the Anti unidentified Ancients Special Team – has been created to subdue the threat. With the help of Hinata Takeru, a high school student who wears the Anti-Ancient Suit Mars, the AAST now sets out on a new mission: deliver the salvaged pieces of the fallen vessel into safe hands, at all costs!
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
If you like young whiny, angsty protagonists piloting powerful suits to defeat strange creatures terrorising Tokyo, then you're likely to enjoy Evangelion and Mars of Destruction. While Evangelion is better, both have a similar sort of mood to them so if you enjoyed one, then it may be worth checking out the other.

However, unbeknownst to them, they were also designed to push back this enemy by any means – even if that means self destruction...
