Summary: 2620 A.D. In order to find a vaccine for the virus from Mars with a death rate of 100% called the Alien Engine Virus, Hizamaru and the crew went to Mars to get a sample of one of the giant cockroach creatures, otherwise known as Terraformars. An unforeseen accident happens, and while Akari and the others fight the roaches to try to escape, humanity is fighting with each other behind clothes doors. The ultimate story of survival with Mars as the background… Round 2 is about to start!
Crunchyroll also streamed the original Terraformars as it aired in Japan. Last week, Viz Media announced that they acquired the domestic rights to the series, as well as Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.
