But Romanara is no longer peaceful as Face, son of the ruler, stages a coup to take control of the land. Junior Virey and his Marionettes Lime, Cherry and Bloodberry are the only individuals able to stop Face, but can Junior face his older brother? And can Lime, Cherry and Bloodberry protect Junior from the Face's Sexadolls Edge, Kyanny, and Brid?
It has been a hundred years since the end of the war between the Imperial and Republic armies. Humanity is spread out across the barren landscape, isolating themselves for better protection against the 'beasts' – rogue robots that are bent on wiping out mankind. But recently the attacks have been increasing in scale and frequency, and a wardroid-raised boy named Ital finds out why: the 'beast-masters', the part-human and part-robot controllers of the beasts, have returned. Together with his companion Zaxon, a wardroid who has lost his memory, Ital fights against the beast-masters. Why have they returned after so long, what are they up to, and who is this mysterious 'General' that they refer to?
Saber Marionette R and Genesis Survivor Gaiarth might not have too much in common at first glance. Granted, both stories have main characters with robotic companions, but Junior from SMR is a somewhat pampered kid while Ital from GSG was raised as a fighter.
Below the immediate surface, the atmosphere and setting of each series is similar. Dark, somewhat post-apocalyptic backgrounds where verious battles with robots/cyborgs. It is more of a feeling than anything else, but if you enjoyed either of these series, you should be right at home in the other.
