Mysterious monstrous alien creatures attack Earth's colonies. This six-part OVA focuses on Juan "Johnnie" Rico who joins the army because of Carmen, a girl he likes, his days in boot camps, his losses and Earth's first counterattack.
Based on the video game, "Heavy Gear" is a pretty cool CGI series. On the planet Terra Nova, in a distant future, war veterans have become providers of entertainment, fighting in huge armor called "gears". Hence, the The heroes are the Shadow Dragons and the bad guys are the Vanguard of Justice. Each group's members and personalities contradicts the group's names, making the show quite interesting. My favorite characters are Shadow Dragons Serv (Clancy Brown) and Sebastian (Ed Hopkins).
The awesome animation is supplied by Mainframe Entertainment ("Reeboot", the Transformers' Beast Saga), and the stories are tight and action-packed. Check out "Heavy Gear" or you'll be sorry!
