    First ep review!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Overview: Worth checking out for fans of serious type anime.

    Pros:
    Realistic dialogue (a rarity in anime)
    Good artwork
    Interesting and unique classical style music
    Some flying robots if you are into that.

    Cons:
    For newcomers to the series like me, it's confusing. Not clear what is going on outside of the character to character interactions.
    Too many characters introduced at once and ...

    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 ...

    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?

    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

    Follow up on a great anime
    This is a great anime with many excellent features such as story, music (Angela is one of the best singers!), battles with mechas, and background animation using CGI. But the characters are many (perhaps too many), have poor facial animation, and most look alike. Sometimes the men with long hair look more like women than the women with short hair (just look at the poster at the right!). This is ...

    Looks awesome, Hard to follow
    There isn't a main hero in this story. I found it really hard to follow because of this. It's a group of pilots and the island's story. The fight scenes are really good but the plot is sort of lost. Is there a plot? Communicate with Aliens? Eh. They are just trying to survive? I want to say great things about this anime because it's really well drawn but it always leaves me wanting a little more ...

    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 ...

    Striving For Excellence
    I liked the old Fafner series, Season One. It started pretty slow, but soon enough you get pulled into a mech/alien battle anime that keeps expanding on it's themes and it's underlying story.

    By the last episode, you really are surprised at how far you have come in that amount of time and how much the show has also changed; for the better, too. It becomes far more intricate, with the "aliens ...

    The new Fafner series is amazing
    Well when I first watched episode one I had this big nostalgic feeling to it even though I did not watched Fafner dead aggressor in years I still felt like I new the characters and half way through the episode I finally realize this was the new series for Fafner and it brought me to re-watch the original series. After doing so I had fallen more in love with the series then ever before the depth in ...
