17 years had passed since then. A.D. 1999, human beings had developed all of the solar system, and began to embark for outer space. The Earth Defense Army organized an elite squad, Crasher, to provide for various happening in space. Myojin Takeru was the member of the team. He was found in the light fell on to the Myojinsho reef.

I'll concede I was going into this movie blind without knowing anything about its source material, though the compilated format of the plot gives me enough of a feel for the general gist of the God Mars anime. It seems pretty by-the-numbers with the story direction it is going with Takeru an alien orphan having his own mecha to control and Zul being a purely evil alien force out for universal domination. Unlike many of the 80s mecha anime I've seen thus far, it doesn't seem God Mars offers much to stick out in any big way and I'd be hard-pressed to want to try out its full 64-episode TV anime adaptation if it largely sticks with the "monster of the day" story mold that a number of its brethren of the time were doing.
