Nagamine is a young high school student who lives a fairly typical teenage life: hanging out with friends, attending class, and falling in love with a wonderful boy. But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?
Both ova's are a short story about what the future is like for a group of girls sent far away to fight for Earth in their own ways. A cell phone connects both of the main girls from each ova to their past lives as well as their romantic feelings for a boy. I'm positive fans of either will love the other.
Among the garbage dumped down from the mysterious aerial city of Zalem, a new life is found. Restored by a brilliant cyberneticist, a young girl named Gally struggles to find her own place in the world, to learn the extent of her own deadly abilities and to discover that which makes her truly human: love.
It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.
Although they have few similarities they can both give you the same sort of feeling - both have the essence of desperation and love in them, and both have the potential to bring tears to your eyes. They are enjoyable, and something that you could re-watch, though Chrono Crusade is a longer story, with a more in-depth plot, and both have completely different time frames.
In a technology-inclined future, a young prince of the Abriel family and his lover take a detour on their way home from an interplanetary trading mission to explore the remains of a dead star. The ancient spaceship they find within causes them to look back over the birth of their race, the Ahb, genetically engineered humans designed to travel the vastness of space...
Mankind is close to being wiped out from the face of the earth from a being known as Festum. 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. Kyo and Yumi are average students who have signed up for Plan L: an operation to fight for their island using the new Fafner TSX model. Together, the 8 pilots and 4 Fafners will fight to preserve both the peace of their island, and their faith that one day, they will make it home… alive.
I've watched both Fafner in the Azure - Right of Left and Voices of distant star... I can tell that both are very similar in a way... from the beginning to end you'll feel the same way watching these anime. So, make sure before watching, prepare a pack of tissue. :)
If you liked Voices of a Distant Star, you'd also like Fafner in the Azure - Right of Left.
