Next War Chronicle Ehrgeiz (Japanese: ネクスト戦記EHRGEIZ Nekusuto senki EHRGEIZ) is an 1997 Japanese OVA anime by Studio Deen and produced by d-rights and BeStack.


Earth started space colonization by creating the Next Colonies to which they later rebelled and formed its own government. The rebellion became a war, and the multi-purpose Metal Vehicles (MVs) were shifted for battle purposes. Meanwhile, Terra, an Earth Rebellion force, started creating more trouble for Earth. Now, a mysterious MV-like being, S.A.C ("S" for short), is loose, and Next wants it so that they can win the war. Terra's psychic leader, Hal, has been sensing "S", and wants to know more about the power it has. The future of these three groups will be up to a bunch of outlaws who live on the abandoned Next 7 colony, though no one knows that yet....


  • The North American release by Bandai Entertainment (then AnimeVillage) used only the German "Ehrgeiz" which means "Ambition" in English.
