One starry night, a red light crashes down on an island in Japan, carrying with it 6 data weapons and a turquoise-haired girl. Seventeen years later, "Gulfer", a machine empire out to kill all living beings and conquer the universe, plants itself an outpost on the Moon and commences attacks on the Earth. GEAR, a secret organization established to counter the Gulfer, defends Earth from this threat. Dendoh, GEAR's main fighting weapon against the Gulfer, chooses two elementary school kids named Hokuto Kusanagi and Ginga Izumo to pilot it, and with GEAR's and the 6 data weapons' help, they fight to protect the Earth from the Gulfer.
In lieu of no reviews... this might be seen as yet another mecha anime, but it could be sweet... the way there's a motherly figure, the friendship, and the reversal of an 'evil' entity, while the position reverses for a brotherly figure... it is not quite as deeply philosophical as Evangelion, but it has a certain panache and an allure that can be both colourful and dark. It explores human relationships, yet is intimate with technology and lifeless (?) machines. Overall, it may be slightly repetitious and a classical shounen mecha, its music not outstanding, but passable, yet it can be charming and at times moving. There is some character development, but also 'technicians' with not much of a backstory... Ultimately, it does have a potentially interesting storyline.
