Synopsis

When the Golden Race invited other races to join them in the stars, three sentient races answered their call. The Goldens called them the Bronze, Silver and Heroic Tribes. Just before the Gold Tribe left to travel to another Universe, a fourth race appeared, traveling to the stars on their own accomplishments. The Golds named the human race the Iron Tribe. During the passing of time, humanity suffers at the hands of the more dominant races and is now facing extinction. Following a prophecy left by the Gold Tribe, Princess Deianeira sets out to search for the powerful being who might be able to save humankind. She meets a wild haired boy on an abandoned planet - a fateful encounter that will not only change the fortunes of Humanity, but also the fate of the universe.

Every genre has certain themes that are considered its staples - the building blocks of stories that have been, or are yet to be told. One of the most common elements in science fiction is the Earth being attacked by an alien force with superior technology, and there are numerous stories about this topic in everything from radio plays to comic books (with a few Hollywood blockbusters thrown in for good measure). These tales are usually resolved by the use of human ingenuity and courage, together with a healthy dose of serendipity (the battleship just happened to be there).

But what happens when the enemy really read more

Heroic Age is truly an extraordinary anime. For me it is a must see series.

Story : 9

Though the story may seem a bit classical for those of us who are fans of the sci-fi genre I want to assure you that it is non the less amazing. Yes it is the classic battle between humanity and the alien forces and yes there are heroes/champions for each of the warring factions but despite these cliched details the story is so much more. It is an extraordinary tale that depicts an awe inspiring journey of Age and the Princess towards the future not for the human race read more

Heroic Age is a Space, Sci-fi, Action, Adventure with a story basically about mankind's struggle to exist in the galaxy and to carry out instructions laid out by the Golden Tribe. The basic premise of the story itself is great but not original, but at least it's made easy to understand with the superb intros in the first couple of episode. There happen to be some similarities in this anime's plot and Star Wars IV and some other sci-fi anime; Vandread and Gundam Seed. So this is an anime Star Wars fans can enjoy however don't expect to see any lightsaber duels.

Story:
I think the story is told very well. The pace is even and while it doesn't speed along it doesn't go so slow as to be annoying or particularly noticeable. And the pace does improve as the anime goes on.
The story I think is a very enjoyable one. It is very original, having several unique qualities.
It fallows the 'classic' way of doing things. Introduces characters, establishes personalities and let's you get to know the characters, then puts the story into full force.
an 8 on story from me.

Art:
For me, the art was very strange at first. Having an unfamiliar look, at least out of the things read more

Recommendations

It's similar with saving Earth along with mechas..
Both set in space with plenty of space battles. They are set around a "race" seeking recognition of their existence in the universe. Both revolve around themes of xenophobia, acceptance, existence and return to the homeland.
reportRecommended by Yitza - Add to favorites
Both anime are set in deep space and feature a lot of fights between humans and an alien race, human using mechas and aliens being insectoids.
reportRecommended by hajil - Add to favorites
Both are adventure stories, with an equal share of action and romance aswell. They also both weave elements of ancient mythology into their settings and stories. The main female characters are also similar, both possesing mental powers above others. Mecha are both portrayed in a more original way, than what you would normally see.
Both have human race near extinction and depending on one hero with hidden ability
Both anime are military SF, with large scale interplanetary war, with action set mostly in space.
