Storyline

The story starts off with showing what players are and showing how Kouga and Jin were friends when they were young than the story makes a leap forward in time and follows the 2 main characters - Jin Kanzaki, a young man with the ability to transform into a superhuman being known as ZET, and Kouga Amagi, a young man with a strong sense of justice who uses technology to fight as ALPHAS. The fates of these two men and those around them intertwine as they fight to protect mankind and destroy monstrous abominations known as Players, who ironically are the creations of the Amagi Corporation, the company founded by Kouga's grandfather, Mitsugai Amagi. Written by Earyu

26 June 2012 | by joelherroSee all my reviews

This was one of the better action animes to come out in a while...

The story revolves around Jin and Kouga, two kids who have a strong sense of justice from a young age, although justice can mean different things to different people...Jin saves someone from a disaster and asks payment for it, whereas Kouga prefers fame to money (since his parents are already extremely wealthy). As they grow up their need to protect people and fight for justice only strengthens, but they both have different paths to walk...eventually they face 'players', crazy monsters who were created by rich men for sport gambling, but have decided they'd rather walk amongst (and eat) humans instead...now Jin and Kouga have some serious enemies of justice...

There wasn't anything exceptionally unique about this show, I just liked the concept and execution. It's quite violent and bloody, so probably not for kids...check it out.
