    New Series: Soukyuu no Fafner ~ Dead Aggressor
    for BT Links to first 3 episodes http://www.mirkx.com/search.php?search=fafner

    mecha design i'd give an 8, its realistic in that it isn't over the top like much of gundam is or as organic/human as eva/rah. looks like what someone could actually build in 30-50 years.

    character design i'd give a 7, seems stale since most of us that are going to watch it allready saw this in gundam seed. kazuki the main character looks like a damn knock off of athrun.

    the enemy/"angel" art i'd give a 9, i really like the use of how its all gold clad, and the actual angel similarities they have.

    i'd say so far this series is atleast watching the first 3 episodes of to get a feel for it. i'm a sucker for mecha anime so i'll be watchig all of it :o i'll post after some people have seen 1-3 as to not give away to much :o

    yeah... started watching it
    i'm not sure
    i have it up to 3 and i don't want it to be an evangelion type of anime (in which it is the search of your inner true self...blah blah blah)

    evangelion has fucked it up for everyone else
    with the exception of those who enjoyed the end (both tv and movie(s) )

    i enjoyed the tv ending for the happy ending, shinji seems to have come to grips with himself and everyone else and saves mankind either by saving everyone physically by reseting the world or by becoming the tree of life and saving everyones souls inside of himself :o

    the movie ending i like mostly for its art and for the whole asuka sequence, IMO the movie could have easily eclipsed the whole genre if shinji would have gone berserk after seeing asuka, or if asuka could have been able to regenerate when she went berserk like shinji had done...

    it took me a while to get the ending (mainly because i was expecting an end/big fight scene/lots of resolution...)
    but i understand what the creator was trying to do.. but as an anime fan... meh
    though i got the big fight(s) in the movie, and the ending was bitter sweet

    so the island has been hidding from the rest of the world... gets found out...and they want one of the mechs
    i kinda guess that an alien/alien artifact crashed on the island, wanted refuge, residents decided to help, the 'aliens'/sphinx are searching for the girl (guessing she's the one in the chamber)

    Anyone know where I can find an active torrent for episode one?

    EDIT: Damn. They're already on Episode 20? I guess it's too late for me to catch up. Yet another anime that I'll miss. :hs:

    I'm starting to like this series. It's got a lot of symbolism in it however. I hate the likeness to NGE, Rahxephon and Gundam in the first few episodes, but it starts to separate itself near the middle of the series.
