The hostility between Earth and Mars has grown, and a war is drawing close. This, however, does not concern James Links, a rough American cargo hauler who wants nothing else but to patch up the relationship between him and his family. But things change when he discovers the highly sought after orbital frame Dolores, quickly causing himself and his two teenage children to be framed for murder and accused of terrorist actions. Follow them on their journey to Mars as they try to clear their names of these crimes they did not commit, with only each other to rely on.
In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...

Zone of the Enders: Dolares, i feels a lot like the Gundam that wasn't. Specifically SEED came to mind while I was watching it, probably because of their similar release dates so the animation in them is fairly similar. ZOE has a similar setup to your typical Gundam with Earth vs Mars (human conflict), but does have a good bit more humor to it. All in all ZOE feels a lot like a less ambitious Gundam with more comedy to it and does it pretty well. (Do be sure to watch the prequel ZOE movie first before the series though)!
The Year is Cosmic Era 73, two years after the end of the war between Earth and the PLANTs. Peace had finally been achieved thanks to efforts put forth by both sides, but it was not meant to last.

With the war now back in full swing, will Shinn and the others find a way to restore peace?
