It is widely considered the first OVA ever released.[1][2] The storyline focuses on Moon pioneers and the evolution of mankind.


In a near future, mankind has moved from a drained Earth to the Moon. Rebel acts of terrorism lead to conflicts with the Earth Federal Government. A mysterious entity called Dallos appears to restore hope.
