The UN base is quickly laid to ashes and only a handful of survivors remain, but the attack is repelled thanks to the efforts of a renegade mech pilot, Eiji.

He has stolen their most powerful mecha, the SPT-LZ-00X Layzner, and offers to help Earth – that is, if he can convince the people he just saved that he is telling the truth!

Top tier 80's Sunrise (wait, isn't that everything they did in the 80's?)... Both shows are heavy sci-fi, pitting a handful of average, ordinary, untrained characters together in the midst of unexpected warfare. These groups of completely inexperienced characters have to fight and bond together as one whether they like it or not so they can make it out to simply see themselves through to another day. Both take the mecha aspects fairly serious, with simulations, heavily detailed information, training, etc, tons of attention to detail and realism. Vifam might be a little more humorous at times, but it certainly knows when to be serious, as Layzner also has it's realistic funny moments between the characters interactions. These shows really give you a sense of danger and desperation, you'll fear for the worst when people get thrown into a fight they want nothing to do with. The sense of progression in both is excellent, as each episode passes, characters develop, grow, and learn new things, making it a great experience. These aren't just shows to watch, they're a journey to see through.

MS Gundam and Vifam touches upon many of the same subjects as each other. Both are about people thrown into the middle of a war against their will and having to grow up, mature and deal with the circumstances as best as they can. Both series also put a great deal of time into discussing what an enemy truly is and it's not an entirely one-sided.

Of course, the action looks great in both series and if you enjoy mecha, especially of the real type, then both series are for you.
