Tatsumiyajima Island is a calm place where children can live their lives at peace, but the inhabitants must now move into combat to keep the citizens safe from the Festum assimilating them.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

School students of Fafner in the Azure have the same mission as the First Child of Neon Genesis Evangalion, to prevent the destruction of the world. These children must utilize mecha to protect the place in which they call home. If you like heroic battles to determine the faith of the world, Neon Genesis is for you.

G78

Fafner and Evangelion are about children who operate a giant size robot, in order to save the world from ultimate destruction. Evangelion is by far more interesting than Fafner, though.

Nocturnalgloria

Fafner-Right of Left and Neon Genesis Evangelion offer a very character driven approach to the mecha genre. In both cases it is the human conflict of children who must fight that takes the spotlight. With this said, Right of Left is considerably more conventional in its heart wrenching tale while Evangelion eventually becomes a highly complex exercise in deconstruction and emotional dysfunction.

Saikano

Saikano

In the not-so-distant future, mankind is at war with itself. The lives of Chise and Shuu are torn apart when Chise is chosen to become the ultimate weapon to fight for Japan against their enemies. Death, sadness, and the hardships of love accompany Sai Kano in its grim look at war and its consequences.

Saikano and Fafner-Right of Left share the same mood of deep tragedy that accompanies the involvement of children in a ruthless conflict. In both, technological advancements are made to help with the war effort and these same backfire and cause considerable damage on the child fighters. A very moving romance develops in both titles. Saikano, however, is exceedingly sad while Left of Right is more bittersweet.

Galadriel

both Saikano and Fafner - RoL have a deep tragic, melancholic mood, both of them feature main protagonists (more exactly children) fighting in wars changing their mood and personality because of the advanced technology used for suplying the war effort. Also both animes feature a very touching romance aspect so if you like one of this two shows then be sure to check the other one as well.

Bokurano

Bokurano

When a group of children discover a strange cave at the beach, their lives are forever changed. Inside they find a hide out filled with computers and a man named Kokopelli who gives them a curious offer: to participate in a special game in which they save Earth from fifteen giant monsters. To defeat the invaders, he will give them a powerful mecha of black armor. The children eagerly sign the contract, name their new weapon Zearth, and must now take turns to pilot it; but the 'game' is in fact all too real and the consequences of battle become the stuff of nightmares. With no option to cancel the contract, is there any way to stop the game before it is too late for all of them?

Nocturnalgloria

Bokurano and Fafner-Right of Left are mecha titles in which the robots serve to develop the characters. In both series children are forced to wage an excruciating battle with an aura of bittersweet tragedy that weights upon everyone. Bokurano does an exceptional job in fleshing out a rather vast cast while Right of Left focuses more exclusively on two characters; in both the human element is much more important than the action and these somewhat underrated titles deserve considerably more attention than they receive.

Fafner and Code Geass are about children who fight with a giant robot, except that the stories don't revolve around the robot fights alone. They are about more than just mecha!

Sousei no Aquarion OVA

Sousei no Aquarion OVA

Long ago there was a war between the humans and the angels. After the angel Apollonius fell in love with the human Celiane, he tore the wings off of his back and helped humanity by creating the only machine capable of fending off the angels: Aquarion. He was eventually defeated by one of his comrades. Twelve thousand years later, the angels have returned to once more take the life-force of all humans. Aquarion's whereabouts are unknown, but humanity is fighting its hardest until the keys to victory can be found. In order to defeat the angels they need the aid of Aquarion and the re-incarnations of the lovers that saved humanity before, Celiane and Apollonius.

Both of them are OVAs that take place BEFORE (in cronologic time) of the main serie, even if Aquarion OVA is also a retelling. The story focuses on relationships that are really tragic, both are moving to tears and with sci fi - mecha hints.

They will clear the story about the original serie if you want to. Again the world is awaiting to be saved.
