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?
This recommendation is fairly simple: if you like fighting anime, and you liked either Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer or Street Fighter Alpha you will like the other. Plenty of action at pretty much the same level in both.
