Despite very different on the surface <b>Fafner</b> and the <b>AoT</b> are surprisingly similar. Not only in terms of the premise, teenagers pited against giant creatures in order to portect what they think is the whole of humanity; as in the way the series progress.

In <b>Exodus</b> and <b>AoT The Final Season</b> we rejoin characters that we have known since they were teens, now as young men and women. They are all battle weary, beyond their years, faced with a world that is much wider and more complex than they could ever thought possible. All have lost much. 

These seasons are heavy on blurring the lines between enemy/ally, between human/non-human, between loyalty to country/loyalty to the world; they have an interesting mixture of old characters and new ones and even touch upon family in ways that are surprisingly alike.

At the heart of these two anime is sacrifice, it was so from the very first episode and as they become closer to their respective finales, <b>Fafner</b> and <b>AoT</b> it only becomes more central.

Not close at the beggining of both series, when you find teenagers first encounters with giants enemies who attempts to finish the peaceful lifes they are having; but yes in this stage "The final season" of AoT and "Exodus" of Fafner, when they are now a bit more adult and they found those enemies aren't exactly what they thought and that the world and humanity are also at odds with them.

If you enjoy development of situations, characters and evolving worlds views, you will enjoy both franchises.

Brain Powerd

Brain Powerd

In a possible future, mysterious devices called plates create robotic "Antibodys": Brain Powerds, or Grand Chers. In this world, a monumental structure known as Orphan lies at the bottom of the sea, slowly making its way to the surface to fly into space; however, its success would result in the death of every living being on the planet. Already, natural disasters are prevalent due to its ascension. In order to stop Orphen from obliterating humanity, the organization known as Novis Novah uses Brain Powerds to battle it, while Orphan searches for more plates and defends itself using Grand Chers. In the middle of this war is Hime, a girl who found and mastered a Brain Powerd on her own and joined Novis Noah, and Yuu, a boy who has served Orphan all his life but now decides to escape and fight alongside Hime. Can these two young people make a difference in this war? And what is the true purpose of Orphan?
