Heavy Gear was a popular animated science fiction television series that was broadcasted on The WB from 2001 to 2003. This series was created by Dream Pod 9 and was produced by Sony Pictures TV. The show was set in the distant future and had a post-apocalyptic theme to it. The storyline was based on a tabletop RPG game called Heavy Gear and was highly popular among the gaming community.

The show followed the story of a group of pilots who controlled large robots called "gears". These gears were used for various purposes including transportation, exploration, and warfare. The pilots, also known as "gearheads" were highly skilled individuals who operated the gears using a complex control system. The show revolved around their adventures in a post-apocalyptic world and the various challenges they faced.

The world of Heavy Gear was set in the year 6130 AD, where humanity had established colonies on various planets. However, a massive war had taken place that had ended with the destruction of Earth. The surviving humans had fled to other planets and started rebuilding their lives. In this new world, gears had become an essential part of life. They were used for everything from basic transportation to heavy industry. However, the gears were also the primary weapons in the ongoing conflicts between various factions.

In the series, the main characters were a group of gearheads who were part of the Southern Milicia. The Milicia was a rebel group that was fighting against the oppressive Earth-based government known as the Terranovan Commonwealth. The Milicia was fighting for the freedom and independence of their home planet called Terra Nova.

The story of Heavy Gear focused mainly on the frustrations and difficulties faced by the Milicia in their fight against their oppressors. The show was highly engaging, and each episode had a unique storyline that kept the audience engrossed. Some of the episodes featured the Milicia trying to obtain information from enemy bases, while others focused on their battles on the front line.

The show had a wide variety of characters, ranging from human pilots to alien characters. The main protagonist of the series was a gearhead called Marcus Rover. He was a highly skilled pilot who was known for his tactical abilities. Marcus was a charismatic leader who inspired his companions to fight for their freedom. Other members of the Milicia included pilots like Justin Allard, Maggie Weston, and Rik van Nutter.

The animation of Heavy Gear was impressive and had a unique style that set it apart from other shows of the time. The gears were intricately designed and had a futuristic look to them. The environments depicted in the show were also beautifully done and added to the overall atmosphere of the series.

Overall, Heavy Gear was an excellent science fiction show that had a loyal fan base. The series was well written and had engaging storylines that kept the audience hooked. The animation was impressive, and the action sequences were exciting to watch. The characters were well developed, and the unique setting of the show added to its appeal. Fans of science fiction shows would enjoy watching Heavy Gear and experiencing the adventures of the Milicia.

Heavy Gear is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (40 episodes). The series first aired on September 22, 2001.
