you are a fan of Aquarion or most other Mecha influenced anime series
this is colourful enough to get your attention. In the previous series,
Inori was being taken away from Shu for Death to use her as a tool to
resurrect Mana, he hates the fact she is being used as a sacrifice when
he could have a chance to save her, but Shu only gets told he has
repressed feelings about Mana.
In the past there is a moment in
time when his sister Mana had found a boy lying on the beach. At first
they thought he was dead, but he came to and she gave him a name he
later changed to Gai and they had happy times together where he even
became his best friend. Shu wonders why he had kept that memory locked
away in his subconscious so when he follows where they are taking him, his
captor Death says that Inori was originally sent to communicate with
Mana and as they created her, why wold they want to give her back to him? Inori will become the body that Mana (Eve) will inhabit whether she
will come alive and bring about the second coming of Lost Christmas.
This means that the Apocalypse Virus will be sent around the world to
Just when it looks like Shu will die and Inori will
be used to create havoc on Earth, Gai returns to help him out and also
remind Shu what he didn't know about Mana. As an anime series, this one
ranks him on being odd, but it is colourful and fairly modern-looking as
far as the animation is concerned. The hair rendering quality on the
men is better than some I have seen and the backgrounds are well drawn
