not highly stylized, it does make for an entertaining
series *9 out of 10*
Tomino, the original creator of Mobile Suit Gundam,
took a little break from animation after completing
V Gundam. After witnessing Evangelion, he claimed he
could do way better and hopped back into the anime genre.
While Brain Powered doesn't quite live up to what Tomino
said it would, it is a pretty good series.
The story takes place
sometime in the near future. A new threat has emerged
from the depths of the ocean. A huge spaceship called
Orphen. The UN takes action and develops Novis Noah
to counter Orphen. The two ships wage battle with
called Anti-Bodies, living organisms that can feel
and fight. It starts out with Hime Utsumeia, a young
orphen who happens to witness the revival of a Brain
Powered. However, it isn't long before two Grand Chers
from Orphen show up. One
of them is piloted by Yuu Isami, the son of the main
scientists on Orphen. After seeing Hime, Yuu now believes
there is something on Earth worth saving. Skip ahead
a year later when Yuu escapes Orphen in a Brain Powered.
From there, the
story takes many twists and turns.
While the animation
and CGI seem limited, the music is the best. Yoko
Kanno really outdid herself on this project and I
really feel the music boosts the mood of Brain Powered,
depite it's small budget. The action is pretty limited
to missiles and energy weapons called Brain Bars that
fire Chakra waves (some type of yoga energy). Overall,
Brain Powered will impress mecha fans. Especially
olders ones that have seen Five Star Stories and such.
