A 4 part ONA series that came out over the past few months, and compared to some previous series like AGE of Tri-Fighters... this defintily isn`t for kids.
Taking place during the original Mobile Suit Gundam series, this is a harsh and cruel story set during the One YearWar.
On the one hand there is Io Fleming, son of the former Side 4 governor and pilot of a Gundam mobile suit. On the other hand, there is Daryl Lorenz, top sniper of the Zeon "Living Dead Division". This is a force of soldiers that have suffered grave injuries and are forced to wear prostethics to make up for lost limbs and such.
The series features a hard storyline, but it is also drawn really gorgeously, not in the children anime style of some more recent series. It has a strong musical undertone, as both combatants use music to keep more focus in battle.
A second series of 4 ONA`s, detailing the second chapter of the manga, is in production at the meantime, and scheduled to air later this year.
