I happened to like BOTH Eva and Brainpowered, but since were discussing
Brainpowered here, I'll stick to that.

It's a pretty good show. Gundam fans will be able to see the influences of
Tomino's usual themes, but it has a very different feel from any Gundam show
I've seen. Definitely worth watching.
