Gunbuster

Gunbuster

In the early 21st century, insectoid organisms are invading the galaxy, searching for new stars to house their young. Mankind's only defense lies with space cadets such as Takaya Noriko, daughter of a celebrated admiral killed in battle, and Amano Kazumi, the top of her class. With their skill and the power of the mecha known as GunBuster, the girls must help fight to protect the galaxy from total annihilation...

If you've only seen the Candidate for Goddess OVA, you probably get a sense that the storyline of the TV series is epic and interesting. Unfortunately, it's not that much, but GunBuster WILL amaze and excite you with its amazingly epic and beautiful plot, and wonderful character development. Check it out.

Infinite Ryvius

Infinite Ryvius

What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...

If you like the idea of kids battling it out for a cause, not to mention character development, try out Infinite Ryvius. It's a lot more angsty and more focused on character development than, say, fighting aliens ala Candidate for Goddess, I still think they have a similar feel and immensely enjoyed it, myself... so you might too!

Stellvia of the Universe

Stellvia of the Universe

It is the year 2356 AD, 189 years after a shockwave from a distant supernova decimated the Earth. Since that fateful day, humanity has begun training for a final mission to protect the planet from the inevitable oncoming 2nd shockwave - a mission whose failure means the annihilation of mankind. For Katase and her friends, their training at the foundation Stellvia is just the beginning of an adventure that could lead to saving the world, or seeing its end...

Stellvia is a far better look at kids in space, and definitely is better as far as pacing and character development. If you watched the OVA, you probably watched the TV series as well, and thus, know how Candidate for Goddess is in its entirety. Thus, if you checked out Stellvia, I'd know you'd love it too!
