In America, Voids : Furors was canceled after its 13th episode, which should tell you how popular this series was with fans. The series follows a boy called RD who lives in the large metropolitan center of Blue City.
As a member of team Mach Storm, RD takes part in competitive Void battles. The series starts off episodic; however, as it progresses, RD and his team learn about a conspiracy to take over Blue City via a military uprising and have to work together to stop it.
The 3D models used for the Voids look cheap and the movement is nowhere near as fluid as it was in the previous series, making the whole show look extremely dated. After an event called “Gods' Fury,” Planet ZI (the setting for most Voids media) goes post-apocalyptic.
Society rebuilds around giant structures called Generators, and the world returns to a semi-feudal state. With the town facing destruction, Fuji agrees to use the Murasaki Liner to go search for someone who can repair the generator and save the townspeople from certain doom.
Fans are divided on the series, with some praising it for taking the show in a new direction and for its new cast of Voids. This commission sets rules and regulations in an attempt to make the battles both exciting and safe.
The series tells the story of Bit Cloud, a boy who joins the heroic Blitz Team when he discovers that he is the only one capable of piloting Liner Zero. They also have to handle a criminal organization referred to as the Backdraft Group, who run unsanctioned Void battles.
Unlike other entries in the franchise, this season is totally episodic, making it really easy to jump into. In the U.S. dub, the series is split into two halves, entitled Chaotic Century and Guardian Force respectively.
While being pursued by bandits, Van finds an amnesiac girl who calls herself Fiona as well as Zeke, an extremely rare dinosaur-like organic with the ability to join with and enhance a Void. During this journey, the uneasy peace between the Helix Republic and Guys Empire breaks down causing chaos across the land.
Van's idealism is slowly eroded as he is dragged into the war, quickly developing a heated rivalry with Raven, a pilot from the Guys Empire who harbors a deep hatred for Voids. The story and characters of Chaotic Century are what make it stand out among the other entries in the Voids franchise.
It also strikes the perfect balance between intense action and deeper themes, touching on the nature of war and how we are shaped by our knowledge of history. Even though the Voids series is based on a toy line, there’s an argument that one can make for Chaotic Century regardless.
Unlike the other series in the Voids franchise, Chaotic Century started off as a manga. But having source material is a good thing for a franchise like Voids, which is already based on another media anyway in having a toy line.
The manga narrows the focus of what they could do with the series, allowing them to tell a tight, concise story. Voids doesn’t miss an opportunity to take some cues from Gun dam, and that’s maybe rightfully so.
Gun dam has long-established certain tropes in Mecca anime, one of which is the importance of a young character for the audience to relate to. It gives Van and his friends a lot of opponents to fight against and really lets us feel like maybe there’s a chance that they could win.
Gunther Proven, the leader of the Guys Empire and the main antagonist of the series, gives us the sense that he’s willing to do anything to win the war. But Raven, Van’s main rival as a Void pilot, is actually dangerous and shows himself almost impossible to beat for much of the series.
This isn’t the first franchise that came out of a desire to make more money on selling toys by creating a story to go along with them, and it probably won’t be the last. The series was able to establish the lore of Voids : where the creatures come from, why they exist, what their relationship with people is.
The careful adaptation of toys to anime creatures was so important to the success of the series. It made us really feel like the Voids were both awesome to look at and were living things, something we could connect with as viewers.
This meant that there were unlimited options for the different kinds of stories that could be told, and it wasn’t held to the same narrow lore and mythology that the later seasons were. The series follows a Gun dam style war drama plot, with the battles fought with meccas, but since it takes place on another planet, with different kinds of technology and cultural implications, it felt like a totally different series.
Instead, we find that Gunther Proven, who is leading the imperial forces against the Republic in the war, has taken over the Empire illegally, staging a coup against the prince. So when the prince returns and reclaims the throne, Gunther loses his mind and rampages, leaving the two combined forces trying to stop him.
In her free time, you can find her eating hummus, riding the Haunted Mansion, or being suffocated by her cats, Moo and Mai Tai. Watch free for 7 days Voids are beast-like fighting machines used in both everyday use such as transportation, and special use such as war.
Also in the laboratory, in an animated suspension tube is a strange girl. Spotting a ruined Shield Liner Void outside nearby, the Organic fuses with it and repairs the damages.

It's later revealed that his desire for money is to buy expensive medicine from the Dark Metal Empire for his ailing sister. When he tries to steal medicine from Exile of Dark Warriors, Bastion learns that he was being conned by the Empire.
This makes him change his stingy ways, which earns him Trike's Void Key and a place on Team Freedom. Apex / Salt (, South) Voiced by: Yuma China (Japanese); David A. Kaye (English)Member of the Freedom Team and pilot of the Wolf Void: Alpha Shadow.
