What They Say
For a thousand years, the Gowa family has secretly manipulated the fate of Japan, first through political intrigue and now through the manufacture of a frightening new weapons system. The Gowa family makes plans to use the brewing war between NATO forces and a Middle Eastern country as a proving ground for their humanoid combat mechs called Tactical Armors. Yushiro, the youngest son of the Gowa clan, uses his ability to call upon the monstrous Gasaraki to fight his family's devious plans. In a world in which giant robots are real, however, the most powerful weapon of all lurks within a human mind. War has never been depicted more accurately - or violently - in anime than in Gasaraki.
