Brain Powered

"Brain Powerd" was developed by the creator of the Gundam series as a "rebuttal" to "Shin Seki Evangelion".

Well anyone seen it?

I know the musics better than NGE anyway because yano kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Vision Of Escaflowne, Macross Plus need i say more) did it

I haven't seen it, but I've read some reviews saying that it's a joke compared to Eva. I dunno really, but the music is probably better than Eva's. All hail Yoko Kanno!

I really rather enjoyed Brain Powered. It's a pretty slow anime to watch. But i really had fun watching it. I didn't much care for the character designs, but I really like the mecha designs. And Orphan was just...wow. I say it's best described as Eva crossed with spriggan....kinda.

Hehe I think it's to keep a sense of mystery, keeps things interesting for Kanno fans. Its her alter-ego. So its like she's a Clark Kent who's Superman or Bruce Wayne who's Batman. So gives fans something to think about. It's as if she knows something u dont.

Hate to disappoint you but Brain Powered was NOT created as a rebuttal to Eva. I have an interview with creator Yoshiyuki Tomino where he says that he had already been making the series when Eva came out, and knew the comparisons would be there. He then goes on to state that he never made this as a response to Eva, it just happened to come out around the same time hence the comparisons.

I've never seen it (not yet, anyway ), but from what I've heard about it, it definitely sounds interesting. Will definitely have to see it sometime.

One notice the quotation marks, another is i have never called evangelion "Shin Seki Evangelion" before and also I made this thread ages ago.

Two, Evangelion came out in 1995, Brain Powered 1998.

Three it's annoying that this series can somehow be (in some people's eyes) a rip off of evangelion when Tomino himself created the genre with Mobile Suit Gundam.

Four, When Tomino saw Evangelion he apprantly was very very pissed off since he was working on BrainPowered.

Five the opening theme song ------ rocks

I'm almost finished with Brain Powerd. It's not bad, but it has many flaws. I think once Baron Maximillian came into the story it got more interesting. It's kinda hard to understand what's going on sometimes. I like the character designs. The fighting sequences were very dry, but I'm not very picky about that.
