A virus has spread around the world and humanity's only hope is placed in the crew of Annex #1, as they travel to Mars to inspect the effects of the Terra Forming project which begun thousands of years ago. The Project involved using moss, a plant that is very resilient and can grow in almost any environment, alongside a bug with equal qualities – Cockroaches. Their goal is to obtain samples of the resident cockroaches in the hope of finding acure to the virus. Unfortunately those resilient insects have mutated into giant, aggressive humanoids with one overriding goal: exterminate the humans!
We like it because:
Based on the best-selling manga from Viz Media, comes this remarkably entertaining and innovative series that takes sci-fi by the scruff of the neck, offering up an array of jaw dropping plot twists and striking animation.
Genetically modified humans, killer mutant cockroaches, what’s not to like about Terra Formars? This all new series from Manga Entertainment is not to be missed.
