The Unified Empire, Giganos, was built on the moon to ensure the survival of the human race. Seeking a new world order, Giganos had declared war on the allied forces of the planet Earth. With their technological superiority, Giganos controlled 70% of the Allied countries. In the midst of a Giganos attack on their space colony, three friends, Ken, Light, Tap, find secret weapons called Dragonars.
What can I say? It takes a cue from Gundam. Space colonies versus Earth? Check. Battleships in space attacking a neutral colony? Check. Suspected hidden mechs? Check. Newbies who are not supposed to be piloting mechs but will suddenly find themselves piloting mechs? Check.
I was taking this first episode seriously at first but when a damaged car runs faster than space bikes(?) then watchability goes down a bit.
I thought cars couldn’t run on less than 4 wheels
The mech battles aren’t exceptional, but the new pilots seem to know how to use their mechs, not even sweating a bit. They defeat trained soldiers too easily. And they’re not even Coordinators at all.
The AnimeNfo entry (alternate name: Kikou Senki Dragner) says this series has 48 episodes, but I wonder if this series was worth that.
Now the designs are ok (this is late 80’s anime we’re talking about), but then this mech anime feels too generic to be really worth some of our time.
