Brain Powered

Show Summary

In a world ravaged by flooding caused by the ascension of the giant organic alien vessel Orphan from deep beneath the sea, two sides suddenly emerge in a battle for the future of humanity. Those who wishes for Orphan's success in leaving the planet, thereby stealing away all of the organic energy from Earth and annilihating all life except for those on the ship itself, and those who wish to prevent that from happening. Orphan's supporters, the Reclaimers, use the living mecha, or antibodies, called the Grand Cher. Those who fight against the Reclaimers operate the battleship known as Novis Noah, and pilot the antibodies known as the Brain Powered. This is the story of the ex-Reclaimer Yuu Isami and a girl named Hime Utsumiya as they fight with their Brain Powered's to prevent the extinction of mankind and to discover what the true purpose of Orphan is. (Intro information came from The Anime News Network) Terms: - Antibody ~ an organic being, produced by organic plates through a process called "revival". Can be either Grand Cher or Brain Powered. - Organic Plates ~ Round, flat, disc, approx. 4-5 meter in diameter, which consists of a metal-like material. Can create an antibody. Cannot be determined, before it's revival, whether it will produce a Grand Cher or Brain Powered. - Revival ~ During this reproduction procsess, the shiny cloud that consists of organic cells called "Bits" appears. The Bits are cells that form the body of the Antibodies. - Orphan ~ Found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, it is believe to have the ability to absorb all organic energy from the Earth. Why it came to the EArth and what it can do are still a mystery. - Reclaimers ~ A group of people that believe Orphan will destroy the Earth and travel the galaxy. Their aim is to revive Orphan, and use the Grand Chers to battle against Brain Powereds, the Antibodies piloted by the groups that try to stop them. - Novis Noah ~ A pyramid-shaped ship powered by an experimental organic engine. Funded by the United Nations, this giant ship is also equipped with a nuclear-powered secondary engine. The crew members inclue those who pilot the Brain Powereds and battle the Reclaimers.moreless

  • A anime with big ideas

    8.0
    Brain Powered is a anime with big ideas. The problem with it is it's execution. First the story is in the earth's near future. Where a strange ruin, known as Orphan, has begun to surface from Earth's oceans. Orphan first appeared from under the tectonic plates, and all signs point to it surfacing and causing a world wide catastrophe when it reaches its destination above the waves. This activity from Orphan has created earthquakes, seismic waves, and tsunami's, which have battered the land regions of Earth, producing wide spread floods and destruction. The humans inside Orphan plan to change the earth drastically by raising Orphan out of the ocean. They also use ant-bodies, giant robots created from Orphan. The story follows Isami Yuu who flees Orphan and Hime a member of Novis Noah a huge ship build to batttle Orphan.



    Now that I gave the basic story of Brain Powered let's get to the review. Like I said earlier the show had big ideas trying to reach the height of other anime along the lines of RahXephon and Saikano and it generally does. The story I would give a 10 it kept me interested. The characters I'd give 9, they were cardboard cut outs and made you care about them. The animation was a 6, it was granny and looked like it was made in the late 80s. Also there were the giant robots that looked terrible. Finally the music I'd give a 7 on, there wasn't anything special but was still good. Overall I'd give it a 8. It wasn't a classic or great like the anime listed above, but it was still very good.moreless
