Average Rating

Deep beneath the surface of Southern Cross Isle, a mysterious organization known as the Glittering Crux Brigade frequently gathers in their underground fortress. The group is particularly interested in "Cybodies," stone giants which can transform into massive fighting humanoids but only in a realm known as "Zero Time." By finding and shattering the seals of the island's four seal maidens, Glittering Crux hopes to break free of Zero Time and use the Cybodies anywhere they please. One night, a young man named Takuto Tsunashi washes up on the island's shore and is rescued by Sugata Shindou and his fiancée Wako Agemaki, one of the island's seal maidens. After he awakens, Takuto quickly befriends the two and proceeds to enroll at the local academy, where many of his fellow students are secretly members of Glittering Crux. However, Takuto holds a secret: when in Zero Time, he can utilize a Cybody of his own—the Tauburn. In the forthcoming battle, Takuto and the Tauburn will be the key to preventing Glittering Crux from shattering Wako's seal and realizing its nefarious ambitions.

This is defiantly the kind of thing I should love. Wish it had been better.


Card suit villains will never go out of style, it seems. ‘It’s a pinch!’


Gets repetitive, even for a seasoned tokugeek. Ending was a bit of a letdown. Soundtrack is amazing though, and Tauburn most fabulous.


A unique show that takes some time to find its footing. Once it gets going it’s an absolute blast though!


Copy pasta, the anime


I was hoping for more. This show was soundly mediocre.


So much style, so little substance



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
