both occur in a post-apoch world setting involving the use of past technologies in order to survive, and require the discovery of ancient secret technologies to continue their civilization's lives and hope for the future.
Both shows are directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the father of the gundam franchise and mecha anime visonary, and both shows are him at his most lighthearted, but also at his directoral best. Both shows follow a group of really likeable young people through a spanning war. In Turn A, it's about going back to your roots, and in L.Gaim, it's about rebellion and trying to find your place in the world, as well as following your destiny. Both shows feature a great deal of humor and are both genuianlly funny, because you really start to like and care about these characters. Neither show really focuses much on the mecha either and are more character dramas/adventure shows, so those usually uninterested in mecha anime may find these series easier to get into.
When watching Brain Powerd, i couldn't help but think about another Tomino series, Turn A Gundam. Both shows have a lot in common, plus they both share some of the same voice actors, and a score by Yoko Kanno.
