*based on the Playstation 2 game Hametsu no Mars -Mars of Destruction- by Idea Factory*
In 2016 a manned probe send from the Earth to invistigate Mars explodes in the Earth atmosphere and fragments which contain a dna sample of what is thought as a trace to possible Mars inhabitants fells on Japan.
That causes mutations all over Japan. People who are infected by that “virus” are called the Iseki-jin (relic persons). The AAST is founded, obtaining the cooperation of structure Doctor Hiroshi Hyuga they develop a suit, “Mars”, as a trump card against the relic persons.
The carrier of the suit obtains super powers but only a few people, who are dna compatible with the suit are suited to wear it. Tairu, the son of the doctor was the first person who was able to wear it.
When the fragment which fell to Earth is being transported to a laboratory in the USA for an analyze the trasnport is being attacked by the relic persons, now Tairu has to fight and defend it for a final solution in this incident.
One of the worst OVA that I ever watch. -_- The story start off quite normal…with gore and stuff. But it start to sucks when they show what happened to earth after the tragedy. (read summary above) They just suddenly jump into the story without explaining much. And when the credits start rolling out, I was like “Huh?”. They just cut off in the middle. -_-
Since this is based on the game, perhaps it is to fill in the hole in the game. I haven’t play the game yet, so I can’t comment much on it. But, for a normal OVA, I think this is very bad. Not recommended unless you play the game before.
My rating: 2.5/10
