Watch Aquarion

Aquarion, also sometimes known as Genesis of Aquarion, is a modern anime television show that takes many of its cues from older science fiction animes. Anime is a type of Japanese cartoon, but unlike most Western cartoons, anime is usually designed to be watched by teens or adults, as opposed to being watched by children. Like many animes, Aquarion originally aired in Japan before being translated into English and airing in the United States.

The plot of the show centers around a huge robot called Aquarion. Aquarion is really a type of weapon that was originally created and used twelve thousand years before the show's story takes place. Aquarion was designed to be used to fight the Shadow Angels, a type of immortal, powerful beasts that are intent on harvesting the life force of humans. In that long ago time, Aquarion and its pilots were able to defeat the Shadow Angels and seal them away. However, when a cataclysmic event occurs in the present day, the Shadow Angels once again emerge.

The Shadow Angels themselves are very dangerous, but their plot against humanity is even worse. They use their amazing technological abilities to create flying machines that harvest humans. These machines, which are known as harvest beasts, are piloted by robots known as the Cherubim Soldiers. It is the Cherubim Soldiers that humans must first defeat if they want to go on living.

Human technology proves to be too weak to fight the Cherubim Soldiers and the Shadow Angels. However, when three advanced machines, known as Vectors, are uncovered, there is some hope that all is not lost. It takes very unique people, people with special powers, to pilot these machines. These people and their powers are known as Elements. Luckily, though, when the three Vectors and their pilot Elements combine, they are able to create three different forms of the legendary Aquarion. In these forms, the Elements and their organization hope to one day bring Earth back under human control, eliminating the Shadow Angels.
