If you are very familiar with Kurumada Masami, many of the plot and character elements share a lot in common with some of his earlier works, specifically Saint Seiya and Ringu ni Kakero. For example, family bond and longing to reunite with a lost sibling is once again an emphasized theme in this series. It gives Teppei a strong motivation to go on an initial one man mission to fight an empire to save his brother. Though in Saint Seiya, Seiya wanting to find his sister gets sidetracked until nearly the end, this element is consistent throughout the series.

I'm a bit of a sucker for mecha-with-a-plot, so this one was a favourite of mine while growing up. It was like my shounen balance to my love of Sailor Moon at the time. --Which pretty much means it ...was almost the opposite of Sailor Moon (which is a good thing for shounen).

Story: 8/10
Big baddy versus talented youth SOUNDS cliche, but what really sets this story apart is the world and how dark it eventually gets. The world-building is done wonderfully here. It's a wonderful mesh between what we consider the 'real world' and a dark, dystopian world of mecha.

Recommendations

Created both by Masami Kurumada. Both comprising of wild sideburns, heavy punches, impulsive main characters, shiny armors, effeminate characters and references to mythology.
Both heavily feature combat sequences, and both have animal-like robots, as well as having the same basic 'Good Versus Evil' plot.

Opening Theme

"~Haruka~ Sailing for my Dream" by Fence of Defense

Ending Theme

"Boku no Ikikata" by Blue Boy
