    To anyone who wants to know, he ends up with Anna, who met Eiji when
she's only 14 years old.

Actually, Layzner also had a "hidden" computer personality also, I think
it's called Forlo or something like that. It's the system that is designed
to protect the secret of Eiji (that Guradosian and Earth people are exactly
the same). It's the system that first used V-MAX, and it's also the one that
caused Eiji to actually kill a person (at least in the movie version).

I think it's basically an emergency only system where it uses all resources
of the unit that gives the SPT ungodly speed, which is supposed to be used
for escape. It will also activate a barrier like system. Although it was
supposed to be used for escape, throughout the anime, it is also used to
attack as well (keep on ramming the target). Only two (Actually 2 and a
half, since the Enchanced Layzner is basically Layzner) SPT has it. The
original Layzner's V-MAX is weaker than the V-MAX of the other two. There
was supposed to be another SPT that has V-MAX (actually it's called
V-MAXIMUM), Layzner Mk-II, but it never appear in the anime or the movie...
