Storyline

In the far future, a human colony planet called Glorie comes under attack by an alien race called the Zors. The focus characters of this series, Lt. Jeanne Fránçaix and the 15th Armoured Tactical Unit which she commands, quickly prove to be one of the most effective combat units in this war, despite their reputation as troublemakers. In the course of the war, they play a key role as the entire Army of the Southern Cross fights a seemingly hopeless battle against an apparently near invincible enemy. Yet secrets and tensions are hidden in the enemy itself which could profoundly change the conflict on their own. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

User Reviews

The best of the lot.
23 November 2000 | by KensuSee all my reviews

Although unjustly maligned by Americans fans who've never seen it, and virtually ignored by the Japanese ones that have, this series was one of the greatest of all time. The plot turns on one great secret that's hidden in the Zor's past, and the ending rivals that of Blake's 7 in portraying the sheer unfairness and irony of life. The animation quality, music, character, setting, plotting, and dialouge are all first rate; though it may be a little slow for those who are used to the eye candy of most 90s anime. A must for mature science fiction fans.
