“Candidate for Goddess” is a mecha series by Yukiru Sugisaki. The year is 4084, a thousand years since the ‘Crisis of Systems’. This event resulted in the destruction of four planetary systems by mysterious beings known as Victim. Mankind now lives in space colonies, heading towards the sole inhabitable planet, Zion. Powerful mecha known as Ingrids are used as weapons against Victim. They are piloted by young men who have a special power called EX. Will mankind be able to find Zion and defeat Victim?
The main problem with this series is that it ends abruptly, leaving behind a lot of loose ends. Despite this, it isn’t all that bad. It has a pretty good Evangelion feel while still being an original story. The Ingrids are cool looking, but it would have been nice to know why only psychic males can pilot them. Victim is a pretty boring antagonist since all we see it doing is attacking the colonies. Honolulu mecha fans can read it on a rainy day.
