Metal Symphony , with later installments subtitled "Another Place: Another War" is a series of novels that was later adapted into a Hybrid Animation Series, animated by Light Brigade Studios. The original novels and the scripts for the HAS were both written by Ubekonian Rei Ostiev.
The plot concerns an alternate universe where mythril drives were never invented, as such, human expansion has been limited to the original Sol System only. The series uses two factions (The Earth Federation, and the Jupitris Coalition) to comment on the war between the Federation and the Confederacy, as such, the series is extremely controversial, and has been decried (most notably by Lord Ilwax Landsteiner) as "subversively pro-Federation" and "borderline treasonous".
In spite of this, the series has been well-recieved, garnering a large fanbase as well as winning several Centauri animation awards.
Metal Symphony is a tribute to a defunct RP of the same name. Said RP began around the same time as Mythril Aces itself, and the two have (albeit, superficially) similar premises. Metal Symphony is now defunct, but we at The Mytrhil Aces Roleplaying Circle feel a certain kinship with our distant cousin and have seen fit to tribute them here.
