    More Fafner makes the world a more awesome place. So psyched!
    A very important disclaimer. Already a few of the low star reviews are by (not) lovely folks who do not care to use Google for a split second to discover that this is a belated continuation to the original Fafner - Dead Aggressor. So if you're finding this series for the first time, you actually need to go to www.funimation.com and watch the original first season and the Heaven and Earth movie ...

    Good SciFi/Mecha anime
    I have always love Fafner. I like how it ask what are you willing to give up to win.
    The only con is the need to watch season 1. Since season 1 is very good to start, watching it is not a con.
    Would it be possible for Crunchyroll to put Fafner season 1 up too?

    On the First Episode
    For a newcomer, this episode will mean little to you, you DO need to watch the first series and the movie to appreciate it. For an opening episode, it's very reminiscent of the first season's episode in the ways that it's a fairly slow start, but the degree of foreshadowing is way up there. It's nice to see all the characters recapped for us. And see some new ones. Like the first episode, it has a ...

    The story is full of sorrow
    I watched the season one when I was in high school. I was too young, and I wouldn't want to watch it again because the story is just too sad. So many characters died in the fights (I wasn't well prepared for that). It kinda scared me off.
    After so many years, the season two finally came out. I thought it would be a good time for me to re-visit this anime. And now, I see the anime a little ...

    It only really connects when you seen the prequel
    I enjoy how traditional the start is, some backlog, some battles, introduction of the world; especially for a first episode.

    On the main hand it is extremely important for you to see the series before Exodus as this takes place with most of the main cast in their adulthood rather then the time they were Fafner pilots.

    So go check it out

  • Entertaining to watch
    It was full of action and it was quite entertaining, the characters are fun to watch. the music and the art was great.

    The only thing that irks me is that the series demands some kind of sequel to seal loose ends.

  • It's Brutal and Really Trying.
    This anime is definently for those that likes any Mech anime/manga, however they should be aware that this anime is really brutal to it Main Characters, i can honestly say that even Gantz is not as trying emotionally as this one is on it's Main Cast.

    It is nonetheless nice to see that almost everyone of the Characters that is seen more then just a few times are thoroughly Developed, it's also ...

  • First Mech Based Anime
    This is the first Mech based anime that I have seen, I have typically been an action/ adventure fan (Rokka, K, God Eater, SAO. etc...) but WOW I am quite impressed with this series (only being 6 episodes in), I am hooked. This series is causing me to have an appreciation for the Mech based series and want to explore others.

    Watch Season 1 and the Movie first!!!!
    I'm happy to see Fafner getting another season with great animation and ANGELA singing the opening theme! :'D Please remember to watch the first season, OVA: Right of Left as an Easter egg after you've seen season 1, and Movie: Heaven and Earth before starting Exodus, otherwise, you will be extremely confused because Fafner isn't the anime you can pick up and watch without having seen season 1 and ...

    Engaging Plot and Characters
    Personally, I've been a fan of Hisashi Hirai's work for years, which was the main inspiration for me to watch Fafner. Granted, EXODUS will NOT make sense if you haven't watched the original 2004 anime - as I see some reviewers have not. To understand the baseline of this series, you'd need to go back and watch the original, as well as the movie that follows.

    But I digress.
    EXODUS attempts to ...
