Space Warrior Baldios
In the distant future the planet of S-1 is on the verge of environmental ruin. As a scientist was on the verge of a breakthrouw, the followers of a military fanatic named Zeo Gattler step in and kill him. The scientists son, Marin, is angered and escapes, but is trapped in a time warp and ends up on earth in the slightly less distant future of 2100. Gattler's forces come to invade the earth, but a group known as Blue Fixer uses Marin's ship to complete their super robot Baldios. Now Marin and Blue Fixer must defend the earth against the S-1 forces, who seek to take over the earth and make it their new home.
Noteable for having an abrupt and depressing ending in which the Earth is destroyed by tsunamis, but later having a movie that gave it a more satisfying conclusion. Several episodes of the series were also combined into a movie for release in the United States under the magnificently generic title Space Warriors: Battle for Earth Station S/1. Most people within the mecha fandom probably know Baldios from its appearance in Super Robot Wars Z.
