A mix of futuristic and historical narratives, Gasaraki includes mech combat, elements of Japanese culture such as Noh and Shinto, rigid family hierarchies, as well as plenty of political intrigue.

As NATO forces fight a minor war against the new Middle Eastern nuclear power of Belgistan, the ancient Japanese Gowa arms-trading dynasty makes preparations to sneak its new humanoid combat robots (Tactical Armor) into the conflict as a "live" testing ground. In cahoots with the black operations division of the Japanese Self-Defense Force, the Gowas have a secret of their own-they also intend to road-test their private top secret weapon. Family scion Yushiro Gowa is a psychic warrior who displaces his energies through a form of enhanced Noh performance. However, as the weapons go into action, Yushiro encounters Miharu, a beautiful, mysterious psychic, working for the tip-top-secret organization Symbol.

One of the best of the Evangelion clones of the late 1990s, Gasaraki successfully duplicates its predecessor's confused kids, military conspiracy, and electrifying action. Miharu is an obvious respray of Rei Ayanami (the words "mysterious girl" appearing depressingly often on 1990s press releases), while Yushiro's peculiarly dramatic powers are a welcome change from nebulous "natural" abilities. Director Takahashi, renowned since Votoms as the father of realistic robot shows, does not stint on the gritty action, a tactic aided greatly by the script's use of actual Gulf War events and news reports with the names changed, which adds a subtle note of realism.
