About Levius

The awaited anime adaptation of the manga Levius (Haruhisa Nakata, Shueisha Young Jump Comics Ultra), formatted with a global audience in mind.  It follows the blossoming talent of Levius - a young man whose arm has been replaced with a mechanical prosthesis, thrown into the world of "metal boxing", a violent and exciting combat sport fusing man and machine. A new, cutting-edge visual style of anime depicting Levius' struggle against his opponents as well as his own mysterious past, felt in the weight of machinery and the subtlety of human emotions.

Story
It is the 19th century of the New Era. Five years have passed since the resolution of the Fossanian Dispute, over drilling rights to the new-found natural resource, "Agartha water". In this new age driven by the power of steam, a new and dangerous combat sport fusing man and machine has flourished: metal boxing. The war took Levius' father as well as his own right arm, and his mother is still in a coma, hospitalized. Taken in by his uncle Zack, as if by fate Levius finds himself drawn to the world of metal boxing, where his potential blooms. 
Meanwhile, Levius' climb through the ranks of the Grade III championship is being intently observed by the mysterious and eccentric Dr. Clown, and flashbacks to the war are never far from the back of Levius' mind.
