"In Volume 3 of Gravion, it becomes apparent that whatever alien intelligence is sending the Zeravire destroyers to Earth is no longer interested in just killing humans. The purpose of the invader's evolution has now become to annihilate Gravion itself.
As the first episode begins, a handmaiden in Sandman's castle is captured by the Zeravire. As as usual, the hotheaded Eiji takes it upon himself to rescue her. The problem is that Gravion cannot work at full power without his presence. It forces Toga to make a choice between destroying the Zeravire or saving his friends. His choice could lead to Eiji's leaving the Gran Knights. As the episodes progress, so does the lethality of the Zeravire, leading Sandman to reveal Gravion's most powerful weapon yet--The White Steel Fang.
Yes, Gravion is very derivative of other transforming mecha shows such as Voltran and alien invasion epics like Neon Genesis. So what! It's entertaining. It's more lighthearted than Evangelion and belongs pretty much to the young at heart whose thrill comes from the weekly transformation scene before fighting aginst the weekly bad guy. The characters are pretty interesting when they're not in Gravion. I wish there was less mecha and more concentration on the characters, but what can you do? This is not Dostoyevsky. If you are looking for some good escapist entertainment, Gravion is as good as any."
