Anime Description: Zoids New Century Zero

The teams are deployed, and the battlefield is set. Ready...FIGHT!

The Chaotic Century of planet Zi has long since passed into the pages of history. The Zoids that were once instruments of war and destruction now find a place in a new order and a new sport: organized Zoid combat. Originally an unofficial sport, the realm of ruthless groups looking for power and control, that all changed with the establishment of the Zoid Battle Commission, which codified the rules of combat, established official leagues and events, and provided a means of enforcing the rules. Zoid battle thus emerged into the mainstream.

Teams of Zoid pilots battle each other to become the top dog in the leagues, and the Blitz Team is preparing to rise to the challenge with the help of a pair of newcomers: Bit Cloud and the unpredictable Zoid Liger Zero.

In this new world of organized mech combat, there still dwell elements of chaos, none more dangerous as the Backdraft Group, a rogue Zoids organization out for personal gains and power. Between this and the remaining teams in the league, Blitz Team has its work cut out, but if Bit Cloud is any indication, they're not afraid.

Though the anime is very new, the concept of these mechanical machines actually dates back to the 1980s, with a set of innovative mechanical model kits. The kits were re-introduced in Japan in 1999, with the anime as support. Though the first series to appear in the US, it is really the sequel to Zoids Chaotic Century.
