In the year 2025, automatons dubbed the Kikou suddenly appear and attack human beings, leaving many cities completely devastated. Human civilization is left in the ruin, but debris of a Kikou is then found in Japan. A research facility named Tokyo Kikou Institute (Toukigen) is established to investigate the Kikou's weaponry. Following the proverb "use poison to defeat poison," using Kikou to defeat Kikou appears to be mankind's last hope. Nine years later, a new weapon named the Muttsu is created from the research, and it is almost ready for use in live combat. A boy, Rin Sagami, and a girl, Yuzuru Midou, are chosen to ride the Muttsu. They are entrusted with the hopes for the future of mankind, but they face the mission with courage. However, what awaits the two is a cruel fate.

Eh it was alright, wasn't really impressed by the animation quality though. If it was a full series or movie length, the development would of been better. I'm also got some mixed feelings about the mech designs.
The whole concept of alien lifeforms in the future is rather generic as well. Rin seems like a decent MC but since the special is only 23+ minutes, it doesn't flesh out his character too well. Slightly above average imo. If it gets a sequel or something, then this would definitely have more potential.

RS Keikaku: Rebirth Storage Special
Kinda like Evangelion meets Pacific Rim Generic but was a fan based contest crowdfunded There was a lot of cramming but it was very edgy A hint for more ?
It might have been better if was an hour instead of 23 minutes
In the end a twist and a price to pay
Shes a handful
