A Fresh Change In Mecha Anime
madnessmark | Maple Grove, MN | 10/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a big fan of all types of mecha anime, but this one has to be my favorite now. It has pretty much everything I could want in a mecha show. Fans of Five Star Stories and Heavy Metal L.Gaim will love this.Departure from the Ocean Depths (B-): Hime recieves her very own Brain while Yuu contemplates live on Earth.Fated Reunion (B+): Yuu escapes Orphen to find Hime and tries to break into a research lab.Yuu's Battle (B+): Yuu meets the pilots from Novis Noah and helps them defend a town from Grand Chers.The Hometown Flames (B): Yuu returns to his hometown as well as his only childhood friend, Kanon. There, Kanon must decide whether to stay with Orphen or not.Friend or Foe (B-): Kanon returns to Novis Noah to flush out Yuu once again.Double Revival (B+): Kanon attempts to pilot a Brain Powered while witnessing a revival.Rejection (A): Kanon and Higgins aquire Brain Childs to fight the Grand Chers. And another Grand Cher revives.At the Port of Call (B): KD tries to infiltrate Novis Noah and Kanon becomes more attached to Russ Lemberg.Johnathan's Sword (B+): Mr. Mohammad comes to buy the Novis Noah and Johnathan Glenn holds the ship's crew hostage.The music of Brain Powered alone is worth watching this show. The animation is a tad dated, but still watchable. Extras on the second disc include Textless Opening and Closing. The insert in the package contains a brief synphosis of the series.Overall, this is a great start to a highly intriguing plot that will get way better as the show goes on. Plus, 9 episodes on 2 discs is a good deal. Highly recommended to all mecha fans, old or young."
