Makube Kazuki thought he was living in an ordinary place, with an ordinary life. Yet, one day, the attack of creatures known as Festums changed that. The children of the Tatsumiya Island discovered that the adults were hiding a huge secret from them - the world had been destroyed by Festums, and Tatsumiya Island had escaped by hiding under the most advanced technology.

The day that Kazuki learnt the truth, he was sent to fight against the Festums in a Mecha known as the Fafner.

Yet, will the Fafner be able to protect them? Or is Tatsumiya Island desperately grabbing onto a false hope?

Songs
The opening and ending songs both feature the vocal of Angela. Teeming on the anime's sad theme, Angela sang into the hearts of the anime with Shangri-La [Opening song] and Separation [ending song]

Many of the terms that appeared in Soukyuu no Fafner are from Norse mythology and Germanic mythology.... terms such as "Fafner" and phrases such as "non mihi non tibi sed nobis XXVI".... these are just some of the examples.

Is this like the old Gundam movies like Char's Counterattack or new school trash (no offense to fans) like Gundam 00?

Hmm deeper sounds good, np with more philosophic or political approaches. Sides the library thing I give it a try at the weekend, well one episode at least.

adn the best thing abt fafner is that they are available in CR (not removed yet) since it was not very popular.

There are a lot of pholosophic stuff in fafner, but i think its a good and worthy anime.

*btw, we need to start making banners and logos for Fafner.. to advertise it all over CR.
