Synopsis

Sentan Island is a small island surrounded by the Yuden Sea. It exists in a state of dreamlike tranquility, cut off from the war between the Northern Government and the Southern Continent Free Zone. Our hero, Akiyuki Takehara, lives on Sentain Island along with his mother Fusa. He is currently separated from his father, the town doctor Ryuzo, but the bond between father and son remains. One day, after taking Ryuzo the lunch that Fusa has made for him as usual, Akiyuki arrives at school, where he is caught up in an explosion along with his friends, Haru and Furuichi. The explosion produces a mysterious light, which enters Akiyuki's arm, causing him excruciating pain. He's given no time to understand it, however, as the white-haired girl who rode on the bus with him guides him to a power unlike anything he's ever known.

Bounen no Xamdou is one of those series that took me by surprise. It was on my to watch list for a while, and I really trudged my way through a few misses before I found this one. It's hard to get a gist for what you're going to see by reading a synopsis, because it is a character driven story from start to finish. The overall story isn't bad, but it's really about the people in the story and their relationships with eachother. I was impressed, and it had a satisfying ending as well. Definitely this was a great series.

"Everyday I wake up thinking it'll be okay. 'Cause you promised me that, you'd come back some day. My heart is throbbing but I will wait. And I'll strive... to stay strong..."

Try as I might, I cannot think of a song that matches the content of a series better than the first ED of Xam'd: Lost Memories. If you wanted to, you could probably put these lyrics as the synopsis of the series and have it hold the same effect as the current.

Xam'd is not a series that everyone will enjoy. At first glance, it would appear to be another action series that people watch read more

Recommendations

Both are done by the same studios and have very similar animation, and the 'family' feeling amongst crew members in both series is very strong, particularly at the beginning.
The first five minutes of the very first episode of Xam'd gave me an overwhelming Nausicaa vibe, and the feeling really hasn't diminished with successive episodes. I guess the most obvious similarity is that both feature a heroine who flies a single-person light aircraft and grows things in jars and is tough yet deeply compassionate, to the point of defending or weeping over creatures others would think of as monsters. Also, there's lots of airships and goopy stuff and morally complex war stuff and a cute animal. Basically, if you like Nausicaa, be sure to check out Xam'd. If you like Xam'd and you've never seen Nausicaa... have you been living under a rock? It's a classic!
