In the near future, a meteor strikes Earth, releasing the M34 virus, which causes humans to mutate into monsters. Humanity's only weapon against the monsters are the young men and women of NOA (Nano Osmolar Armor): microscopic machines that allow them to function as human mecha have been infused into their blood. Yuuji, NOA's ace warrior, is a typical anime sci-fi hero: sullen, alienated and hot-tempered. When the monsters reach Stage II and meld into huge, metamorphic creatures even NOA can't stop them. The new secret weapon is Ai, a wistful teenage girl who can project Deva, an enormous laser light hologram that zaps Stage II monsters. Naturally, she and Yuuji are attracted to each other, despite the generals' objections. All four parts of this OVA could have easily fit on one disc, and splitting it between two feels chintzy. (Rated 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon

Even so they are, in my own humble opinion, a refreshing change from the usual lecherous-cretin-meets-overendowed-bimbo(es) themes.
Hey, call me a mushy old fart, but I am still a sucker for purehearted young love. The fourth episode did not leave my eyes dry. Snif. Sorry.
I was expecting a lot more from this series because it bears the Gonzo stamp. Everything about the design of this show is boring and unimaginative. The look of the creatures, the dullness of the NOA suits, the poor blend of CGI, all contribute to a show lacking an identity. The sad thing is that there a lot of extras from the creators of the show and you can tell they really believed in the concepts here. I'm sorry, but the battles either were as exciting as a turtle fighting a sloth or Godzilla fighting a soccer mom. It just didn't work for me. The only thing I liked about the show was the cover of the DVD. I will not view the second disk for the other two episodes of this series.
