Iczelion is the third in the Iczer series and, in most ways, bears little semblance to the original series. I do not own the second series, called Iczer-3. It is said that Iczer-3 is more of a sequel to the original seriesthen Iczelion.

Nonetheless, like the original series, Iczelion also features a young girl named Nagisa who must save the world from evil aliens. In this version, however, Nagisa goes not have a giant robot to help, but rather uses body armor. This is, however, accomplished by a robot named Iczel who merges with Nagisa and together they become a Iczelion. Many planets have Iczelions on them. On Earth there is:

The bad guys are a brother and sister pair who get their kicks from destroying planets. They find out about Earth when they follow Iczel to Earth after the destruction of another world. Featured are:

In the beginning, Nagisa does not really wish to be a Iczelion. It is not until some of her school peers are threatened that she chooses to fight for Earth. This aspect is simular to the original series.

For a babes-in-battle-armor series I guess I can't complain just too much. It does have its cute bits and some fairly cool action scenes. In general, I found it slightly better then the original Fight! Iczer-One.
