• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

It's 2010 AD. Nature has destroyed a good portion of civilization as we know it. To maintain order, society is segregated into the rich Logos and the miserably poor Levinas, and the law is enforced by the militaristic upper class. The Logos enjoy easy life in relatively nice areas, while the impoverished masses of the Levinas struggle to survive in the slums, aka everywhere else.

The Government has Phantom, a special forces division that uses mechas called Gladiators. They specialize in putting down rebellions and generally being jerkasses.

Two guys and a girl are on the run from the evil government, in the process participating in cool mecha battles and blowing stuff up. Jo and Jin are former Phantom members who appear to be polar opposites in personality. Sana, the mysterious pink-haired girl, is somehow linked to Phantom.

They spend a while on the run, meeting up with various rebel factions including the self-styled "pirate captain" Toraji, who is actually the defected vice-commander of Phantom; the story continues thus until Jin is revealed to be a backstabbing fiend who wants to use Sana just as much as Phantom do. Meanwhile Toraji decides to lead the rebellion. The director of Phantom is also working on some sort of Weapon of Mass Destruction involving the mechas and their power source. This is where Sana finally learns her origin and her significance to the project.
