Kyoukai Senki Plot:

Japan has lost the power of authority and is being led by four major trade factions by the divide and rule policy.

While the inhabitants are subjected to harsh treatment, the country is leading the world with the deployment of humanoid mobile weapons named AMAIM.

One day due to his love for anything machine Amou Shiiba comes across an autonomous thinking AI. He was soon dragged into the battle to reclaim Japan piloting his self-made AMAIM named Kenbu.

Conclusion:

Mecha genre has been dominant for quite some time now, with shows like SSSS.Gridman or the most recent SSSS.Dynazenon, Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash, 86, Godzilla S.P, Back Arrow, Getter Robo Arc, and countless upcoming ones the genre is oversaturated. It will be interesting to witness how Kyoukai Senki makes a name for itself in this overcrowded genre.
